Hi Guys -
First time posting, hope I'm doing so on the right subtopic.
I'm a Citi Preferred member, been so for a bit. I got a letter in the mail to upgrade to Premier - this was a little more personal than just spam. It gives me a special "invitation code" that I simply type in on the link they provide and I would assume that easily upgrades me to Premier.
While I do want to make the upgrade to Premier, I don't want to miss out on the promotions going on for applying for one so I called. My god, what a joke Citi! Got transferred to 6 different people in different departments, all who were clueless.
I simply wanted to know if I upgrade through this letter I got in the mail, would I be eligible for the promotions? That being said, I believe the answer is no.
So the question becomes - do I just separately apply for the Citi Premier even though I have a preferred? I would prefer to consolidate and just have one card and the main issue would be to have the same account as I've been a customer for 6+ years, have great pay history, activity, etc. so I feel if I apply separately, I'd lose all of that.
I would be willing to meet in the middle and "upgrade" with this invitation and have my annual fee waived for year 1 but miss out on the 50,000 points offer that is also being promoted. Anyone have some advice/thoughts/opinions on my situation? Citi reps are clueless so hoping someone is nice enough to lend a hand here.
Thanks in advance!
