WEMC Upgrade

Anyone have any luck being upgraded to a WEMC through BoA? My BoA BankAmericard is a World Mastercard, and was wondering how I can get the upgrade...

Re: WEMC Upgrade

I actually called BofA about a month ago trying to convert my Cash Rewards World MasterCard to the WEMC and it was a no-go Smiley Sad they told me they did not offer the World Elite. But possibly it could be a ymmv type thing or getting ahold of the right CSR? Fingers crossed.

Re: WEMC Upgrade

A little OT, but I ran into a similar issue with Citibank. I had an old "platinum" card with a nice $15k limit that had been sock drawered for a while. No real benefits and I used it once a year for $5, going on three years now. I called to see about a PC to something I might actually use. I spoke to a nice CSR who gave the rundown on some of their products, and I finally settled on the Dividend World MC. I still won't use it, but it looks better Smiley Happy. Anyway, while I was speaking to her, I found that Citibank does have a World Elite version, but it's not really marketed anywhere. I asked the CSR about it, and even she wasn't familiar with the card. She did find it on her system, but said you could only get upgraded to it from a WMC, and since my current one wasn't, I could only go as high as the WMC level. She said I could try in 6 months for another upgrade, but since I still have no use for either version, I never got around to it.

 

While Visa Sigs are quite common, as are WMCs, you don't really see too many WEMCs. I don't think it's pushed much by Mastercard for some reason. If I'm not mistaken, it's more comparible to the Visa Infinite.
