How did they do that? Do you know why? What income/scores and how long ago?

 

Did you get upgraded when you got the card? Or did they tell you that you are getting upgraded?

I don't have the Dividend, but after about 2-1/2 years they sent me a letter stating they were upgrading (if you want to call it that) my Citi Platinum Select MC to the Diamond Preferred World MC. Not my request.

Mine- Citi Diamond Preferred WMC $12K / Comenity Total Rewards Visa $2.5K / Citi Home Depot $5K / DW's, I'm AU on most- Amex BCP $12K / Chase Freedom Visa $11014.00 / PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature $6K / Citi Simplicity MC $4.4K / GE Lowes $10K / GE CareCredit $5K

That's weird.

 

Well, I'd like to try and get the World Elite :smileyhappy: and I hear becoming a World MC is the way

How long did you have the Diamond Preferred for? Did you put a lot on the card?

I think you need at least $5K and a year of account history for the upgrade.
