USAA World MC

Does anybody know why they would automatically switch me to this CC?  I have had my normal MC since Dec 07.

They asked me if I wanted it, and after making sure that it would report properly, I said Sure. I like the extra consumer protections on the World version (all the details of which I've already forgotten, lol.)

Maybe they're offering it to MC cardholders who've had the card for a while and have been responsible with it?

They did the same with my older daughter. I think we both got mailed offers, rather than online, which I thought was unusual. Does the APO system work as badly as it did back when I was a dependent? Is there a chance that six months from now, the letter might turn up?


eta: and as I think about it, the "offer" might actually have been more of a "we're changing your card to the World version unless you let us know that you don't want us to" or some such.

They automatically converted mine a couple years ago, but my girlfriend only received hers last week. Not sure what criteria they are using.

Havent gotten this offer yet, but it's cool. USAA froze my interest rate since I am deployed again. They had my orders almost before I did!

What a great company!

If you have a AAFES card, don't forget to have them stop charging you interest while you are deployed.

 

Stay safe!

Got paperwork saying they were changing the card but no reason why......didnt realize it was in a pile of unopened mail!

 

APO system is still hit or miss; when I was in the states last year I mailed back 5 boxes.  Got 4 of them within 2 weeks and it took almos 7 weeks for the 5th one to arrive.
