Amex amerprise plat

The ameriprise plat was discontinued. I heard rumors of people claiming that as of the new year they believed their old ameriprise plat cards have been convereted to regular plat cards. Anyone notice this?

Re: Amex amerprise plat

They stopped accepting new applications for the card back in October

Apparently Ameriprise went to the Visa network

Re: Amex amerprise plat

I still have both of them, Platinum and Gold Card, but I haven't seen anything as far as the Ameriprise Platinum reverting to the plain Jane version.

If it ends up becoming a novelty, I suppose I won't give it the axe this year 😁

Thanks for sharing the DoC link @simplynoir!

Re: Amex amerprise plat

Yeah, it was the first I've heard of this on a forced conversion @red259 mentioned here. I wonder if someone is already carrying a Platinum if it's just taking longer to take effect

It's interesting you mentioned that they're now on the Visa network and their new partnership is with ELAN.  When the Platinum was around, they also offered the World and WE MC versions, but were issued by Barclays at the time.

Isn't ELAN part of Socks Bank? Or am I thinking of another?

You're absolutely right, ELAN is part of 🧦bank. The current issuer of Fidelity Visa... @Remedios favorite 😜. Because, you know...Precious.

Re: Amex amerprise plat

Apparently last year they converted the mercedes benz plat cards over to a regular plat so it wouldn't really suprise me if they did it with this card too.

True, but look how long the MB Platinum was still around (even without new apps) before the conversion took place 😄.  Notably, nothing has been mentioned about the Ameriprise Gold Card's future state.  I'm sure those conversions are on the horizon, but to your knowledge, has anyone recently been forced-converted to the standard version?

I saw someone claiming they were when they looked at the card in their amex app. I don't have my amex app setup so I cant check and it does not appear to have switched over for me in my main account. That being said I haven't hit my annual renewal since the discontinuance of the card.
