Hate to resurrect an old thring, but didn't want to start a new one. I too was able to "upgrade" (as the Rep called it) from the platinum card to the VentureOne Rewards card with no annual fee. I called the 877 number listed above. Took about 30 seconds, read the disclosure to me and the account was upgraded. Perhaps now I can start get increases but I won't hold my breath. Just glad to be done with the $19 annual fee.
Do you mind if I ask how old your account was when this happened?

I've had the account since 2005.
