Fidelity Visa Signature To Replace Old Cards By July 22nd, 2016

If you have a Fidelity Amex, Visa, or Mastercard that was issued by FIA card services (Bank of America), you should expect those cards to be converted to the new Fidelity Visa Signature card issued by Elan Financial Services (US Bank) by July 22nd.

According to the FAQ on the Fidelity website, you will receive the new Fidelity Visa Signature card between mid-June and mid-July, but ultimately by July 22nd:

We are updating our credit card program to provide the best value and customer service to our cardmembers. With this new program, you will receive an Elan Financial Services®-issued Fidelity Visa Signature card between mid-June and mid-July. This will replace your current Fidelity American Express®, MasterCard® or Visa® credit card(s) by July 22nd. All new credit cards will be part of the Visa® network, offering you the opportunity to enjoy Visa Signature® benefits.

It also looks like the last day to access your rewards points through the FIA website will be July 22nd and any leftover reward points will transfer over by July 26.

You can continue to manage your Reward Points earned on your existing card at FIA Card Services® Rewards Center through July 22nd. The rewards balance transferred to your new card will be available on July 26th through Elan’s Reward Center.
Once you have your new card, Fidelity customers can access Elan’s Rewards Center by logging into your Credit Card Snapshot page on Fidelity.com. If you don’t have a Fidelity account, visit FidelityRewards.com/login to enroll.

Keep in mind that with this change, the ability to cash out Worldpoints from the BankAmericard Travel Rewards Visa will go away

In addition, the ability to book flights through the old Fidelity credit cards will go away as well.

I am actually not happy about this change.  I will miss my Fidelity Amex.

    I for one won’t miss FIA. They have a hair-trigger fraud alert system that even their fraud managers have trouble controlling. They have also twice in the last couple of years had to reissue a large swth of cards for suspicious activity, which is a big PIA for a card I use for automatic payments.

    Plus, in my case, Visa instead of Amex is a bog plus.

      I agree with you about their fraud alert systems.. Big PIA. Overall, visa is likely going to be better.
