I got you PM, I am going to try that tomorrow.

 

For the heck of it I tried Citi CS again and they still don't understand there is a World Elite version of Thank You Preferred!

Re: Citi Thank You Preferred upgraded to World Elite MC

I finally got a hold of someone and they told me I wasnt eligible.

 

Apparently I don't spend enough with them, which isn't going to change since I get so much better benefits on my other cards.

Interesting, as it seems enharu got it straight away (enharu, did you have another Citi card at some point?)

 

PDX, I assume your card isn't the 5x version, how much have you been spending?

 

I am tempted to ask, but since the card is new, and 90% of my spend is at CVS, probably don't want to encourage anyone to review it!

Most active cards: Amex BC ($50K), Cap One QS ($33K) Fidelity Amex ($20K)
Others: CSP, Freedom, Chase Amazon, Cap One QS, Penfed Plat Rewards (x2), Citi TY Preferred, Citi Dividend, Citi AA Plat Select, Citi Forward, Amex BCE, Amalgamated Bank, Sallie Mae, Cash Plus
Scores May 14: EQ 848, EX 833, TU 841 (Jul)

Nice card.

 

I wonder what the difference is between the World Elite and the Executive one

I called Citi Presidental Executive Office and they told me my account doesn't have option to Elite World Mastercard.

Re: Citi Thank You Preferred upgraded to World Elite MC

Hmm they upgraded me when I made at most 20 bucks of charges on that card. I did not have any citi credit cards prior to this but I have a checking account with them for the past 7-8 years. I use my citi checking for most of the stuff I'm dealing with that requires cash or cash-like transactions. Don't think it matters though. You could try calling in again and see if someone else is willing to help.

To add: there's an executive tier for MasterCard now?

[ Edited ]

Anyone have a direct number to the presidential office in South Dakota? I have to call the EO office and get transfered.

 

I have been a Citi customer since 08 and my real fico is in the lower 800. I'll admit I only spend 5-6k on the card a year since I prefer my Amex Gold or Sapphire Preffered.

 

I always pay in full, I can only assume I don't make them enough money. I asked him what criteria they had for approving people for World Elite and of course he said he couldn't tell me that.
