Citi Diamond Preferred World MasterCard!

Well I was wondering how I could get my card to World MasterCard instead of just the standard.  I was not sure if it was the same as Visa Sig where you have to get a $5,000 limit!  I guess it isn't.  I called Citi today for 1) to see if I could get the World designation and 2) Try to recon my initial limit.  The rep told me I have the regular MasterCard, and after using the card regularly I could receive an offer to switch over to the World version.  I said ok, thanks, and she said let me check your account, will you please hold.  So she came back, said she spoke with a supervisor and I will indeed have a World MasterCard version and i'll receive my card in 5-7 days.  Does this mean I probably did not have the World to begin with and I could receive two cards?  Or I was originally approved for the World version?  I also asked to take a second look at my initial CL.  She said I can always request a CLI and they will first try to use the info I provide for a SP and if needed she will let me know about a HP.  I said go for it and after entering my info she said it needed a credit review to move forward and if I wanted her to cancel it out.  I said yes and she said call back after using the card some and see if we could then process a CLI without a credit review.  Overall, the experience was great and the rep was knowledgeable!  I am also pretty happy to actually have a World MasterCard as part of my collection!

Re: Citi Diamond Preferred World MasterCard!

From what I have seen citi will upgrade u to world elite MasterCard if you spend enough on the card. Mxp for example spent around 60-90k (can't remember exact amount) over the span of 3 months.

I'm not sure how I got world elite right away. Maybe its the CL they gave me, or maybe its because I have been a citigold client for 8 years now.

Re: Citi Diamond Preferred World MasterCard!

  1. After having the Citi Platinum Select MC for about 2 years they switched me to Diamond Preferred World MC without asking me. Funny thing is, when I had the Select I used it heavily for the 0% stuff but ever since I got the Diamond I haven't spent one dime on it even though they are constantly throwing offers at me.
