Re: Citi Platinum Select to Dividends World Elite

Thank you for the clarification.

 

However, could anyone provide a link so that we see the benefits?

 

I have no idea on how mastercards rewards work.

 

Nothing on citi page..

Re: Citi Platinum Select to Dividends World Elite

Glad it worked out for you, sharefox. As I stated in the OP, I'm hoping to get this done too. Hopefully they will consider that I have had my card for 7 years (even though I did a PC today) when I try to get the World Elite card.

Re: Citi Platinum Select to Dividends World Elite

CruzImperial, I downloaded the welcome brochure this morning from somewhere (it wasn't from Citi, I don't recall where).

I have uploaded it to Google Drive if you want to take a look

Unfortunately, you cannot apply for this card, only be upgraded to it. From my understanding, you need to be a cardholder for at least 12 months with perfect payment history & a high fico score.


ah okay, well thats really good to know.  so when i get ready to app for the Visa one then only 12 short months to World E status!

here's info straight from MasterCard website regarding world elite card benefits: http://www.mastercard.us/credit-card-world-elite.html  cant wait to see the silver MC logo up close & personal!!  :smileyvery-happy:

 

found this in an article:  "World Elite will create a distinct brand position for MasterCard within the elite affluent demographic, defined as those with annual household incomes greater than $250,000."

 

surprisingly, i too called citi today to PC my Dividend World MC to World Elite and the rep took care of it,  also told me of the 45 days waiting period to complete the process.  CSR also told me it comes with an EMV chip too!  too bad they have FTFs  :smileysad:  but good to have as back up anyhow.

 

i've always had 19.99% APR on this card, but with this "upgrade" it went down to 14.24%!  i always PIF anyways so it never bothered me, but more of the principle of the matter!!  it was my highest APR...when all my oters are at 13-14%

@LTWT  - why does it say on pg 2 that you only get 2% CB on rotating categories???    did you used to get 5% too?  or has it always been 2% for you?  is this a diff card because i currently get 5% on those rotating categories...would hate to lose out on 3% just b/c i changed to WElite version?  :smileysad:

Re: Citi Platinum Select to Dividends World Elite

I can't believe this card comes with priority pass, concierge & the ability to earn cashback (and all of the other benefits) for no annual fee... this is amazing.

Sorry to break the news, citi cards no longer offers " Priority Pass" they recently switched to "Lounge First Airport Lounge Access Program" I learned the hard way when I tried to use my Priority Pass Select Card for lounge access during my flight lay-over and it was not recognized in the system!:smileymad:

You will still receive 5% cash back on rotating categories just like the regular dividend card, I do believe, I could be wrong, that some categories could range from 2% to 5%!
