Nothing new here. Remember the thread(s) about Citi and Chase (and other Banks) converting regular platinum cards to Signature or World Master Cards? And how to try to prevent that from happening and/or revert it?

Just did that with one of my B of A cards. They sent me an 'upgrade' card w/o asking me beforehand. I immediately called in and asked for a 'downgrade' (same credit limit) to regular platinum. One has to be on top of things ALL the time with these mothertruckers!@*%#$@&^%#&
