How to obtain Jcpenney Mastercard?

So I've had a JCP Store Card since 2009. Started at a $700 limit, now it is at $4,900. Never missed a pmt, mostly pif. Currently, I owe $1.08 lol-I bought clearance shoe polish yesterday :-P.
Anyway, I want to know if anyone has been upgraded to the MC version of this card? I really have no use for this large of a line, and I'm trying to just not have so much store credit available.
If anyone has the JCP MC, please share as to how/when you obtained it.
Thanks!

Unfortunately it's no longer available, I was interested in this about a year ago

Ah!!! Bummer... Yeah, I only use my JCP card for small purchases at CVS. I called them up for a CLI, and they wanted to do a HP... Pft, guess I'll just handle my $4,900 limit and keep the account active and in goodstanding:-)
Thanks!

The conversion program is back in progress. I received a letter that my card is automatically being upgraded to a JCP MasterCard in August.
I would try calling CS at this time to inquire

Yep 2102 it is, Nice how JCP is upgrading current JCP cardholders that way they can experience the MC and let other JCP buyers know about the rewards and benefits of having the MC
