It actually takes 4 days untill it arrives. They always send it UPS AIR EXPRESS! Done it many times already!

Is if SP out of use for that period?

When I said 2 weeks it was in reply to being sent to Israel, I'm not sure how Jkhein got it so fast. When I did the switch over they did not close the first one right away (to paraphrase the CSR, we wouldn't want to leave you stranded even one day without a CC that would be terrible), I'm not sure when they did as the new card came pretty quickly to my US address and I started using the new number right away.

Would I have an easier time getting approved for another SP Visa if I offered to close and transfer the CL from my Saph WMC to the new SP Visa?

No, the visa still works for a while. Also if they downgrade you to the NP sapphire and then upgrade you, then the old sapphires will still work. Between 3 AU's and three incarnations of my card I have 9 cards accessing the same account.

Ha.

I just got off the phone with them. They told me:

If we can do it, you'll receive a letter from us in the mail. If we can't we'll let you know within 24 hours.

Seems like some agents do it right away and others are just clueless :/

Do you lose your CSP UR points when converting to MW?

THanks, Also is there an annual fee on the CSPMW card as there is on the Visa? when you convert accounts does it start a new free first year?

It's a two step process. Step one change your card from visa to MC, step two reapply for the visa and get your second 50k. No need for any downgrading.

I already downgraded my SP Visa to NP (Non-Preferred) Visa. I couldn't switch to WMC because my year was almost up and I would have gotten billed the annual fee, as I assume converting from SP Visa to WMC will not restart a free first year. (Am I wrong?).

Anyway, can I re-apply for SP Visa now that I downgraded to a NP Visa?
If yes, how long after the downgrade should I wait?

Thanks!

Nope, you are correct.

Someone else will have to answer this one as I have no experience with it.

Once the card is switched there's no reason to wait.

I've done it, although there was a long while in between
got the SP right when it came out (3-4 yrs ago?)with a 25k bonus, after a year downgraded, then got a new SP (and 50k bonus) about 6 months ago

I got mine switched to plain Saph WMC last week, but still haven't received my new WMC card in the mail.

Can I apply again for the Visa SP now or should I wait until I get my WMC Saph in the mail?

How long did it take other people who switched to get their Saph WMC? I called on Feb 22nd to switch and I still haven't received mine.
