That seems like an invitation to me. Of course, they could always deny the upgrade, but the invitation doesn't seem too exclusive.
The offer is for Alliant members who have an Alliant credit card -- that is what is meant by upgrade. It is by invitation only. If you have received an email invite you are eligible. Email invites are being sent out through March 24th so it's possible you'll receive one if you are an Alliant member with an Alliant credit card.
Interesting, but the fee kills it for me. I don't play the MS game, so if I got this card it would be as a daily use instrument. I have one of my MM accounts with Alliant but haven't received the offer.

I use the Citi Double Cash, and the Chase Freedom. The Citi constant 2% then the Chase you vary the items to get 5%.
I like this kind of questions. Everyone does what works best for them.
I don't like airline miles but many people do. I spend about 10k a month on credit cards..this makes a lot of sense even with the annual fees. Right now i use cap one spark and it is 2% flat with annual fee. I would use double cash but i need no forex fees

What would be stupid would be to consider an annual fee in a vacuum, without looking at the benefits paying that fee gets you. The net cashback (after annual fees) is all that matters. Would you pay a $60 annual fee for a 10% cashback card?
