I had four C1 cards. Three platinum MCs with limits of $2,500, $2,000 and the third is a secured MC with $500. Also have a QS1 with a $2,000. Today I combined one of the platinums with the QS1 bringing the QS1 limit to $4,000. I'm going to combine the $2,500 platinum as soon I pay the $200 balance next week to give me a limit of $6,500. Secured cards are not eligible to be combined.
After that I decided to app the Venture One. I was seeking the high SL with no AF. All of the cards except for the secured are less than a year old and all started with lower limits but since all were in good standing, I was sure I woud at least get a SL of $5,000. I also have a growing savings account and my pay is direct deposited to a C1 account.
I was only approved for $2,000.
So I go online and I see my new blue V1 card and I click the Benefits > Card Benifits tab at the top and it takes me to a page with a drop down list showing all of my cards. Interestingly, it lists all of my old cards as platinum including the QS1 and it list my new V1 as a World Elite Mastercard. Below is the language they use on the app and it doesn't mention WEMC or any MC.
You must have apped on a website other than Cap1 to get the WEMC status. They dont offer it. I went to a site knowing they had a QS WEMC. Venture is Visa Sig which I apped on their site. Once that secured hits 1 year. Graduate it or really ask now to unsecured it. Wait the 6 months and combine. JMO.
