Or just do it right and it happens automatically.

I think ^ confirms:

I believe the best time to do it is once the AF posts, someone can CMIIW.

It also happened to me , and I called up and they would not waive it. They were adamant about it, and I cancelled the card , rather than pay the fee.

So at best YMMV IMO

As I said, and as PETERP just reiterated, your experience does not prove anything conclusively.

Dan MAY have confirmed it, but didn't confirm my confirmation, so until he or someone else does...

After my AF hit on my SPV I called to downgrade to regular Visa (same CC #). CSR said I will receive credit for AF.  Credit posted about 10 days later. I then called back to upgrade to SPWMC and received new cards in mail (new CC#).

Yes upgrade it, apply for this visa again and you'll receive the points. As far as how long to wait there's no real time frame you can technically reapply right a way, it just might raise some questions.

1. "right"= convert before AF hits?
2. If you convert after AF hits, will it still credit automatically?

I called up right before my AF was gonna hit and i asked to switch to SP mastercard. they said yes
about a week later, i noticed the $95 charge, so i called up, and at first she said its the same account so there is a fee, but i told her thats not what i was told. she spoke to her manager and apologized profusely, saying she thought she knew everything there was to know about SP and now i helped her find out something new.
about a week later i had the refund

When you switch to A MasterCard do you still get your 7% bonus on all you spent previously on the visa?
I could not find an answer to this, has anyone that converted their SP Visa into MasterCard get their 7% bonus on all that was spent previously on the visa?

I just converted my SP Visa to a SP Mastercard after the AF showed up and after about a week the fee disappeared from my account (it was actually reimbursed). Also, FYI I did not SM or call
