FWIW my own Care Credit (Mastercard) CLI back in the fall was only a SP.

 

I also requested mine online, and went from $9500 to $15000.

My pure play was SP.

Sidenote, can you upgrade to the MasterCard version from the pure play uncleB?




Considering BBVA and 5% cards. (Forgive typos, mobile.)(Everything said is Just IMHO.)

Unfortunately upgrades to the MC are by invitation only.  Smiley Sad

 

I'm not sure what determines who gets the invite; I seldom used mine when it was a PLCC so it definitely wasn't upgraded due to high usage.

Is the APR any better on the MasterCard flavor?

Nope, the terms stayed the same. The only difference is that the MC has rewards, meager as they may be.

 

When I was first upgraded there was a promo where grocery stores (my Walmart qualified) were at 4x instead of the regular 2x, which was actually pretty good.  Now the website is indicating the 2x at grocery stores is a promo and that at the end of June it will go to 1x (I must have missed that somehow). 

 

They sometimes do spend promos that are OK (spend $xx as a Mastercard, get $25, etc.) but I've not seen one since my upgrade last summer.  Other than the occasional promo, the primary benefit of having the account as a Mastercard is that it's a bit easier to put an occasional charge on it to keep it alive for (in my case) dental expenses.

 

More info on their (mediocre) rewards here:  https://carecredit.com/mastercard/info/?intcmp=carecreditmastercard-healthcare-infobox-Learn_More-in...
