Cap1 Quicksilver new look

Re: Cap1 Quicksilver new look

I did call back this morning to discuss the upgrade and, as it turns out, I'm eligible to upgrade to the WMC QS, not the WEMC QS.  I worked with an account specialist, who went through the list of both WMC and WEMC benefits.  From what we found, there's not much difference.

 

She, too, mentioned that getting the WEMC version would require applying for the card.  What we did determine is that the wording on the website for the new QS card is that it eludes to the notion that ALL QS cards issued now have WEMC benefits.  There is no disclaimer noted anywhere that we could find that states that the WEMC issuance is based on creditworthiness.  She said that she would take this back to her product team for further discussion.  I'll be shocked if they actually update the site with the disclaimer.

 

Long story short - they're upgrading me to the WMC, but I suspect that a product change to the WEMC from this point would only be a matter of being on the WMC for a period of time.  I think the rub is that it's probably easier to convert from WMC to WEMC than it is to convert from Platinum to WEMC, based on their current underwriting guidelines.  Of course, that's an assumption...but time will tell!

Re: Cap1 Quicksilver new look

Is anyone else still waiting on their replacement Quicksilver?  I requested one several business days ago, but I still haven't been told it's shipped.

SO, quick notice for everyone. I am not quite sure of the reason or how this happened, but I requested a new QSone, claiming my old one "broke" etc. Well I received a replacement of the old design today. anyone kno why this would happen? Im a bit dissapointed to be honest.

Not sure why that happened, but I have to wonder if those who have a "legacy" version of the card will be relegated to using the old card style.  It might be worth contacting CS and asking.

I just got my replacement card today. My replacement card is the same old design too. I called the number on the back to ask why I did not get the new contactless version of Quicksilver. The agent put me on hold for about 1 minute and then came back to say the new verison will be on its way to me. Why don't they automatically send it out the new version when ordered online is beyond me.

So they sent you the old version?

I am still waiting on the replacement card.
