    Lots of people are being downgraded to the 10K points for first use version of this card. Any data points? Thinking about applying for this but don't wanna get stuck with the 10K card.

    I applied for both my wife and I last night. We were both instantly approved but I appear to have received the downgraded card, as the benefits email for me shows reduced benefits compared to my wife's email.

    Is the any recourse for this?

    I applied and got the "World MC". Wasn't really sure what that was; as I had applied for the World Premier MC. To be sure I sent an email and they confirmed that they are the same (35k). CreditKarma shows 775+.

    There have been many reports of people getting the 10k.

    Hmmm... you may have to call to confirm, but reduced benefits probably means you only got the 10K card. [​IMG] Damn bait and switch.

    I would not apply for this card as there's no way to guarantee that you'll actually get the World MC, even if instantly approved.

    That's my thought right now.
    Seems like FICO is too unreliable a predictor.

    From the posts on FT I don't think this would be a good card to apply for. You could 'blow' a hard pull and get stuck with the 10K mile card.

    I would stay away from this card. Not only do they downgrade you, the CS is non-existent. All they tell you is 1. either re-apply, or 2. Try for higher credit limit in 6 months. With higher credit limit in 6 months, you would not get the rest of 25K points. So, I saw no reason to stay with them and closed the account.
