Re: Care credit MC

Is this a new thing or am I just blind? Probably for the best I grabbed the store card version considering my Venmo card experience 😂.

You can't directly apply for the MC version, but from time-to-time they offer upgrades. 

 

Nobody has been able to figure out what prompts the offer, though.  It's thought that geography might (???) come into play, but we don't know that for sure, either.

Upgrades are targetted and offered to select customers. No rhyme or reason for when/who receives them.  It appears that there's been a sprinkle of members who have reported some MC upgrades recently, but it's not a new thing. As an aside, one cannot apply for the MC directly.

Re: Care credit MC update

Congrats on your upgrade. I was surprised to find the upgraded card in the mail a few days ago. The paperwork says I have til March to accept the upgrade. I haven't decided yet if I'll take it or not. I really hate that's it's a completely new tradeline.

If you "READ" from this post down, things might be changing about "Reporting as a new acct." .. YMMV

It could, just have to give it time and use it frequently. I wouldn't poke the you-know-who for a while if you feel $20K is adequate, unless anything comes up that may require some higher than normal usage. Of course, anything higher than $20K just call the Credit Solutions folks for the CLI.  Show them what sistah can do with that card 😜
