Hello everyone, Long time lurker, 1st time poster. Just had a question about the automatic Platinum status that is given through the Total Rewards Visa. I just applied for the card a week ago, and should be getting it any day now. When we are given Platinum status, are we also "gifted" the 5000 tier credits that come along with that status? Or are we just given the card for the "perks" but still start at 0 tier credits since it's a new year. Was thinking how awesome it would be to only be 10k credits away from Diamond rather than 15k. Looked everywhere for this answer but could not find it. Thanks guys!
