    Anyone successfully upgraded to the paid card? If so did it go through without problems?

    Originally took out the paid for card, hit targets downgraded and now about a year on thinking of going back to the paid card.

    Yes I have. Took out the paid card on launch, then downgraded to the free card which I’ve had for a year. I United the upgrade back to the paid card recently and it has been accepted. I need to wait now for the paid card to be sent out to me which should be just after my upcoming statement.

    I used to have the Plus card but downgraded to the free version over a year ago.
    In my app, under the ‘change to a different card’ option it shows a 5k Avios welcome bonus for getting the Plus card.
    Doesn’t look like an upgrade.

    There was talk that you can’t get a signup bonus more than once every two years, so not sure what would happen if I were to proceed.
