Citi PC Questions...

 

I converted my silver Mastercard to the AA World Elite Mastercard and the rep said the conversation would take 51 days.

 

Does that mean it will take 51 days for me to get my card.

 

I have had my silver mastercard open for 4.5 yrs

 

Also, since I am getting a new account number, does it backdate to the date I opened the silver card?

Yes it will take 51 days. Sometimes it's faster though.

And since its a conversion, the account history is kept. There's no backdating but you get to retain the same account history since it's essentially the same account.

That has not been my experience, I PC'd a Citi Simplicity to a Citi TYP world MC and kept the same 2001 member date as comfirmed by all three Fico reports.

Typically their conversions average anywhere from 45-51 days.  Once it has been PC'd you will notice the change online.  Subsequently you will receive the new card (possibly with a new account number).  However, as enharu mentioned, your account history (CRA-wise) will be preserved and will display the same open date, etc. as your previous card - the only difference might be the account number (if it changes).

Re: Citi PC Questions...

Citi informs us in accordnace with the Federal Credit Card Act that they have to do a 45 day conversion and then 10 - 14 business days mailing and card receipt. Usually an account number will start with 5466-16xx-xxxx-xxxx or 5589-55xx-xxxx-xxxx for Citi's upper level prime Master Cards. The Card you are p/c'ing is certainly a prime plus. If your account number doesn't start with one of the numbers I included in this post you will likely receive a new account number. Their upper tier cards use these numbers. Also, the elite Citi Visa Signature Cards will start 4147-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. I p/c'd to a Citi Dividend World Elite Mastercard and the old mastercard number was 5424-18xx-xxxx-xxxx and it went through the process and took a total of 57 days with a new account number 5466-16 and so on.

I asked them yesterday to PC my Simpliticy to a Dividend, and I was told that PC is impossible for Simplicity cards at all! When did you do the PC? Did you call some backdoor number?

OP, I converted my Thank You card to a AA World MC a couple months ago. They told me it would take 51 days. However, the day or two after I PC'd I saw on the Citi Website that my account had changed to a AA card. I called to have an AU assigned and she asked if I wanted to have the card expedited. I said sure! Low and behold I got the Citi AA card two days later and it worked AND the miles posted that same statement to my AAdvantage account.

 

After 51 days I finally got my conversion letter in the mail and thats when the AF will hit (still hasnt hit for me yet, but probably by this statement closing) . So you can get the card now and earn miles, but the official conversion with the AF will be after 51 days. Make sure you see the Citi card account on citi.com first before you call to ask for a card.

 

Edit: If you want details, here's my thread when I PC'd the card: http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/PC-Citi-ThankYou-to-AAdvantage-World-MC-possible/td-p/2...
