Upgraded from World MasterCard to World Elite

Postby websteth » Fri Apr 25, 2014 1:37 pm

So I checked my mail today an found an interesting surprise, my AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard was changed to a WorldElite. I have a new card and everything online also says World Elite. Funny thing is, I don't see this card listed as a World Elite anywhere else. Is this new? It's also not a card I use a lot either.

Well done you! Unexpected is even better. MasterCard World Elite has a few nice perks that you might actually find useful.

I wouldn't know about the list you're asking for, but I'm pretty sure that you can find anything you may need on this website: http://www.mastercard.us/credit-card-world-elite.html

I don't think you can ask for it. At least I haven't been able to find a way to apply on the internet. I think it comes as an upgrade if you meet certain criteria (the same as websteth).

they are 2 different cards. the $450 fee one is the citi executive. the one the OP has is citi platinum select. he should still be paying the $95 AF (or lower if this was a while back). the 'upgrade' is not an upgrade in the product, but a tier upgrade.

the new barclays hawaiian card can come as world elite upon app accept.

I've read online here and there that you could PC a barclaycards rewards world elite to an arrival, and you can maintain world elite status. That would be the best of both worlds in terms of elite tier and solid rewards program.
