Virgin America non signature card?

Today I received my virgin america card after getting approved via recon initially for $300 Cl then a subsequent Cl recon to 20k. However, despite my 20k cl it's just a standard visa not a visa signature, what gives? 😳

When were you approved? Is it the old version or the new version? The old version was not a signature by default.. FYI just because a card has a line of 5k or more does not necessarily mean its going to be a signature card

Approved about two weeks ago. Card isn't as bad as I thought. There was a note saying iI'll be getting a new one shortly due to the cosmetic defects. I was surprised it wasn't a signature. Not that it's a big deal since I have like 20 sig cards anyway lol...just surprised considering the limit.

So, it's the new card. Thats odd that it isnt a signature.. I would give them a call and see why and if they can convert it to a signature.. if 20k doesnt make it a signature then i dont know what limit does lol

Maybe it had something to do with the initial 300$ CL? The type of account was set with your initial CL and then only the amount got increased. This is what comes to my mind as explanation.

FICO® EQ 795 (as of today) - TU 778 (11/28) * Fako EX 811 (12/02 - CS) * last app 12/16/14 * INQ last 2 yrs TU: 4, EX: 5, EQ: 3

That was my thinking also.  I just sent them a secure message asking to upgrade. Like I said its not really a big deal, but I guess im a credit snob! since the only visa's I carry in my wallet are all Signature cards having a platinum just doesn't go too well with my collection lol

Yes that's what I read. I couldn't find anything about a platinum version. I still got the 49.00 annual fee billed yesterday.

Maybe they changed their mind during the launch.  Kinda explains those $300 CL's.
