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.


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.


Just don't worry too much about it.

In most cases you won't even be able to notice any difference, other than the asthetics. 

You can also try to look around online for a Citi app link for a Mastercard version, though there's no guarantee on whether it will be a WEMC, WMC, or Plat MC. 

 

Mastercard is accepted in more countries compared to Visa, but the difference is really minimal. I'm pretty surprised Chase switched that card to MC as well.

Looks like a decent card were the bonus points the same?

Re: New IHG World MC card!

Wonders never cease. We hear Chase is dropping their relationship with MasterCard and now...! Looks like an interesting card.

Re: New IHG World MC card!

I just became a member right before the change to mastercard. When I called they said everyone will be changed over to the mastercard by end of this month. If you didnt want to get a mastercard they would close your account for you.

Re: New IHG World MC card!

I have received absolutely no indication of this from Chase and I question the truth in this statement.  I can't imagine they would go to that trouble.

I wonder if thats because IHG and MC are now partners

Re: New IHG World MC card!

Just to update, I just received a message from Chase that my VISA will be replaced with the MasterCard version by May 17.

 

Pretty sure all card holders will get the message too.

Re: New IHG World MC card!

My IHG Visa was not the Signature variety. However, my new card is going to be a World Mastercard, so, this is an upgrade for me!

 

Now I need to convince Barclays to convert my Visa Platinum to signature, but they told me I need to reapply for that even though they increased my credit limit above the Signature threashold.
