Re: Future for Zync holders

I posted this in the main thread about the Zync cancellation, but it got buried in other speculation.

I was hoping some of the Optima holders could answer this


"Well this drug me out of my lurking hole.... Looks like I got really lucky..couldn't sleep on Friday so I applied for the Zync-and was approved. Just in time! And like others said we now hold super sexy exclusive card :smileytongue: Does anyone know what will happen in regards to the long term for those of us who have it? Will they offer us a PC or will they just keep supporting it. Specifically what happened after previous product discontinuations?"


I read on another forum that Optima holders were offered the chance to upgrade to another product, is this true? And if so given the Zync's reputation as a prime-ish card will they do it again?

I don't recall ever receiving an offer to upgrade my Optima.  I still have an Optima Platinum and they still send me a new Optima card when my current one expires.  I've had the Optima for over 20 years and it earns MR points.  I also added my husband and my son as additional card members so they can earn MR points on their purchases.


If I had to guess, I'd say the Zync might become a "grandfathered" product, much like the Optima card is now.
