Double Cash Question

Re: Double Cash Question

Most DCs that are WEMC are WEMC in name only and don’t provide the benefits so it’s not worth jumping through hoops to get.

It seems almost random who gets a WMC & WEMC.

Lots of people calling to ask about it/the benefits. Customer service reps saying WEMC citi double cards don't exist...even though caller is holding it in hand.

Some get told it depends partly on how much you use it.

Some get told Mastercard decides it.

And all other sorts of inaccurate & unhelpful replies by customer service.

Saw someone say they requested replacements through the year and 2nd replacement was a WEMC.
Maybe tell them you keep losing your card every week until you get a WEMC? lol "yea, I know I lose it often. Maybe if it were a WEMC, I'd care enough to remember where I placed it."
(Note: though you could anger them with super frequent replacements and they close your account)

HAHAHAHA!!!!!

 

Thank you!





Okay, I tried... Code wouldn't cooperate. Tried for 3 hours!!!

Re: Double Cash Question

I've had a WEMC Citi DC card for a couple years.  My WMC just got updated during a typical card replacement cycle at that time.  My credit scores are 790+, and I was heavily using the DC for a while when the upgrade occured - which may have helped.

 

I'm not sure WEMC means much on a card that doesn't have an AF.  Cards that have an AF + WEMC seem to have premier type of benefits.

Re: Double Cash Question

Had to look after reading...

mine was issued as a WEMC.

Not that that fact alone is important to me

Account is just about a year old.

Re: Double Cash Question

It's useless actually.
You literally get zero benefits in your citi dc between a wemc and wmc. Just boasting rights.

Not worth the time to change your dc. If it's bothering you, then get the capital one savor or savorone. At least the savorone (and also savor) has a WEMC that would give you a $10 free on lyft every month if you take 5 rides and Pay with WEMC.
