I just called the CS and was told that I had to apply for the WMC version! I was not able to convert my Visa Sig to the WMC!! Smiley Mad

Re: New IHG World MC card!

Don't seem to make any difference other than the network itself though.


If only Chase still allows people to have more than 1 card of the same type........ Smiley Tongue

 

To add: This new design looks hideous. It's like Chinese New Year gone wrong...

Yes, it's hideous! But I already have two Visa Sig's from Chase, I prefer to have a WMC from them.

I just talked to a CSP rep, man he was short with me. It's the first time that CSP rep service was not great. Smiley Mad

Don't you already have a Barclays Arrival too? 

There's really not much difference between Visa or MC. Both are pretty much the same thing. 

 

If you really want a MC, you can always pick up a WEMC from Citi as well. The Citi Thank You Premier comes as a World Elite Mastercard by default if you apply in a branch.

+1. It is hideous, but I think it's supposed to match the new IHG membership cards which are done in a similar style. It's very interesting that they decided to make it MC, especially when Chase as a whole is moving away from MC.

Yes, I guess I did not make it clear. I don't really want 3 Visa Sig's from Chase. I would rather have two Visa Sig and one WMC.
