When you switch to A MasterCard do you still get your 7% bonus on all you spent previously on the visa?

Is there an optimal time to convert SP Visa to SP MC so as to ensure that upon conversion the AF will be waived for a year? Should I wait until the AF posts on my SP Visa before converting? Should I convert right before the AF posts? Or does it not matter at all?

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

The annual fee showed up on my account
i called up and the representative was telling me that since its the same account i will still incur the fee
i told her thats not what i was told
she went to go speak to her manager and confirmed that i was right.
so as of today, there is confirmation that you can switch from SP visa to SP mastercard

So the CSR credited your account for the AF?

THAT you can switch from Visa to MC is confirmed (even after the scare posts by some). No news there.

Also, you can't really confirm that the fee was waived after the AF posts as a general rule, because you were told differently prior to the imposition of the fee, so you're case may be unique.

All that said, I believe there have been reports of the fee disappearing(?)/being removed(?) once it posts and the switch is done.

the CSR checked with her manager and she admitted she had been wrong, that in fact there should be no fee after switching from SP visa to SP mastercard
