Barclays Rewards Mastercard upgrade to world?

Now that my limit is $5k, is it possible to upgrade my Barclays Rewards Mastercard to the world version?  If so when should I try? Thanks for any help.

They wouldn't do it for me, but YMMV!

When did you get your Rewards card? I think you should try it still. I don't think time is really of much importance in this matter. Gl!

Chase Freedom: 2,500 (-_-)

Re: Barclays Rewards Mastercard upgrade to world?

I got my Barclays Reward card 6 months ago with a starting limit of $1500. Just this month I went online to check my statement and they auto increased me to $5000. Do you think I shoud try right away or give it some time?

IMHO, always talk to more than one CSR or analyst and see if you can get convert it to WMC.  In my experience, I've learned not to take "no" the first time.

I haven't even tried yet, I was just getting others' opinions first.  Do you think I should call and give it a shot?

You can try but some cc companys require you to have current card a year. Good Luck!

Re: Barclays Rewards Mastercard upgrade to world?

Hey OP!

From what I have read, Barclays will not convert to a higher tier level card.  They require you to reapply For the card and there is no guarantee of an upgrade.  Your tier level card is approved at initial level and remains there regardless of the CL.  They are one of the few CC Companies that will not do this for you.

One more thing... It never hurts to try.  Another option is to see if there is a PC available. Maybe moving to another product will get you an upgrade.  If your card allows. :smileyhappy:
