Upgraded my PRG to Platinum

Well, I did it. Will be doing some international traveling.

My question is: Will I be getting the same fancy welcome package from upgrading? I know you get one from opening new account.

Thanks.

Hey Arm,

I didn't get any fancy packaging...lol! Mine came in a plain, white envelope. I was kind of surprised, since the Discover it card came in a nicely finished box-like mailing. I guess the card is what's important, but I remember when AmEx mailings came with all the bells and whistles.

I got the package when I upgraded (business versions). If you just get the card flip it over, call the number on the back and ask for the package.
