MBNA Smart Cash信用卡从MasterCard变成Visa


【多谢“Kevin”和“Jonathan”提供信息】新消息,部分朋友的MBNA Smart Cash World MasterCard登录账户后会发现变成了Visa Infinite,并且卡号也更新了。网上有人咨询了MBNA,MBNA客服也确认了此事,并说他们将会收到新的信用卡。

you: when i login to my account it says Smartcash Visa Infinite ending in....
you: when it use to say Smartcash World Mastercard ending in...
Scott: We have converted your Smartcash account from a Mastercard product to a Visa product. Rest assured your Smartcash rewards program will remain unchanged. You will be receiving a replacement card over the next few weeks and detailed information about the benefits associated with the Smartcash Visa, but you can still certainly continue using your existing card until you have received and activated your new Smartcash Visa.

另外奇怪的一点,有朋友发现SmartCash Visa Infinite的Benefit里面写着半年后加油/买菜3%。不知道这是typo还是新规则?如果真变3%,那此卡又能重回神卡之列了。

目前MBNA网上还可以申请Smart Cash MasterCard。不知道MBNA将来的计划是怎么样的。聚沙只能说,如果MBNA准备将旗下的MasterCard都换成母公司TD喜欢的Visa的话,那绝对是个坏消息。毕竟Costco和Walmart目前不收Visa了,而MBNA REW和Alaska MasterCard都是大家目前最喜欢在Costco使用的高回报卡。
