Citi Double Cash World Elite Version

My Double Cash card came in over the weekend and I noticed that they gave me the World Elite version. I did not even realize it was the WEMC version when I was applying. I tried finding more information about it but didn't really find much. Is the World Elite version that default and it is just not advertised? Or did I get lucky? They gave me a credit line of $5k.

Congrats!

When I got my card, its was WMC version and then they upgraded me to WEMC after CLI went over 5K!

Whats your APR by any chance?

I don't think Credit Limit /APR has anything to do with it. When I got my DC my limit was 1500 and my apr was the highest and it was still issued as a WEMC.

Re: Citi Double Cash World Elite Version

They have been issuing it as a WEMC for awhile now with various limits; the limit doesn't seem to matter. That said, even though the card says WEMC, many have reported they can't get at least some of the WEMC benefits.

Re: Citi Double Cash World Elite Version

Congrats again! Thats an awesome APR. Most reward cards much higher these days.

Means absolutley nothing.

 

Other than having a shiny sticker and earning Citi higher swipe fees, you get zero World Elite benefits.

 

I ended up changing my DC to a Rewards+, I wasn't using my DC much anymore and with the loss of benefits, no point letting Citi get away with the higher fees.

 ? ? ?  Higher Fees?  Smiley Indifferent

 

I thought both the Citi Double Cash and the Citi Rewards+ both have no AF?  Which fees do you mean?
