GM really should try to team up with a different bank. I think someone else here recently applied for the GM Card and was approved...for a $600 limit. Nobody but Capital One would pull that cr@p! It also shows that MasterCard has lowered the requirements for a World Elite.
If you have a Citibank MasterCard you may be able to get them to upgrade it to a World Elite. I recently had my Dividend World MasterCard changed to a Dividend World Elite. It may seem shallow, but the only reason I did it was to get the holograph/silver MasterCard logo. The cards that I have heard of or seen as a no fee World Elite are the Dividend, Thank You Preferred and Cash Returns (no longer available to apply for).
Capital One also has another World Elite in the Saks Fifth Avenue MasterCard. I believe you have to first get the store card and then upgrade...but yeah, it's still Capital One.
