I recently got 'the letter' to get promoted to a Mastercard World on a Chase Freedom, but I'm wondering if Visa Signature is better. I did a search and didn't find any existing conversation on the matter. Any opinions on which is better?

From what I see, it appears Mastercard World is better:
Warranty extension
Price protection
Travel trip cancellation

mastercard warranty extension only applies if the original warranty is one year or less, and doubles the warranty up to a year.

visa warranty extension applies regardless of length of warranty, doubling it up to a max of one extra year.

It seems to me (and I haven't done a close comparison) that Visa is better than Mastercard in most areas that matter. American Express, of course, seems better than that.

got the same letter for my chase freedom.

I already have the visa signature through fidelity.

wonder if the chase card comes with the concierge?

go with visa signature

and I am not just saying this becuase I own their stock.

Also rcvd something similar:

Cash Rewards Card to World MasterCard with no Pre-Set Limit

Seems to be their subtle way of no longer reporting actual limits

it think it's actually depend in the card issuers and additional features offered by them . i personally like the citi premier pass elite world mastercard . you can earn double miles when you purchase the tickets with it .
