The 26th is when accounts are transferred. So there are still a couple of days.

Me neither. Sorry folks, my earlier post was in error. I mistook the balance on the new card as rewards points. (The new card balance was surprisingly close to what the rewards balance transfer will be from the old card.)

I just checked this morning and my rewards total now reflects the combination of both the old and the new card so they must be updating some before the deadline.

wow , i just noticed if you choose a gift card , a 25.00 amazon card is 5000 points with the new cards .

it used to be 3500 which was still high compared to the 2500 at chase for the same card and chase is 1.50% back so the 2% at fidelity almost offset it but no more .

i like the gift cards because when we put the money in our account we never do anything special with it , it just goes in the mix . the gift cards forced us to do things and go places we wouldn't have typically done .


so we had a lot more fun with the gift cards . but not at 2x the redemption , 5000 points for a 25 buck card is crazy . .

I never bought cards so I didn't pay too much attention to it, but I thought you only got the 2% if the funds went into a Fidelity account? If not it went down to 1% or 1.5% Has that changed?

Same here. Reward balance on the FIA AMEX has now transferred to the Elan VISA. Reward point balance shown is exactly 2X the sum of month-to-date spend on the new Elan card plus last month's unpaid statement balance on the AMEX.

Still no transfer of the unpaid balance itself and no historical transactions, but I'm sure that will happen in the next day or two.

I'm seeing historical transactions for the old card now combined with the new one. The ones from the old card have a + next to them.

The balance looks right. A recent payment I made on the old card is missing, but the balance reflects that payment, so it's a little odd.

I have more points showing than I recorded for the old card last statement. So Elan is already calculating points on current transactions? That part isn't clear yet.

It appears to me that they are. But then I was wrong before so don't take that as gospel.

Ditto. Historical transactions have been transferred over, but only back to December of 2015. I see no history prior to that. Shouldn't be a problem since all the history is still in Full View. I hope Full View is smart enough not to duplicate historical transactions after I add the new Elan cards.

The + you mentioned next to the historical transactions is clickable to open up additional details. Strangely, no such detail is available on the new transactions. ?

My unpaid balance has also been transferred over. It's showing the correct statement balance although the due date got pushed out a few days from 8/2 to 8/5. I can't see the statement itself however. I guess that's because FIA mailed it to me before the changeover.

Yes. For me, the point balance shown on the reward tab includes carryover from FIA plus month-to-date spending on the new Elan card. However, as expected, when I click 'next', only the FIA carryover balance is redeemable. And mine is set to automatically send cash to my Fidelity CMA, which I think does not occur until I pay the balance.

I also noticed that Fidelity's credit card tab for the Elan card now shows all the reward redemption history as well.

Everything appears to be in proper order from what I can see.

FIA card services mailed me the last two statements, so I have hard copy even though the online view is gone.

Yes. Would have been nice to have online access to historical statements as well. Looks like that's not going to happen.

I didn't have to delete the FIA cards from Full View. They disappeared automatically, but the system retained all posted historical transactions, which is good as long as it doesn't create duplicate records when the Elan cards are added.

However, I'm also having trouble adding my 2 Elan cards to Full View.

I enrolled at Elan Cardmember Services, so I now have login credentials and security questions which enable direct login at either www.fidelityrewards.com or www.myaccountaccess.com. Once logged in, both sites are identical except for the Fidelity branding on the former.

Back to Full View, clicked to add an account, and entered "Elan." Nothing. There is no drop-down choice for Elan Cardmember Services nor Fidelity Rewards. However, there is a choice called "Comerica Credit Cards (Elan)." I clicked and sure enough it links to www.myaccountaccess.com. So I put in my credentials, including answering a security question, and everything went fine. Back to the Full View dashboard and the correct reward balance is shown for one card, but the cards themselves are not there at all.

Called Fidelity and got a rep who was quite knowledgeable about Full View. After describing the issue, she put me on hold for about 5 minutes. She located an internal email from earlier in the day explaining a known issue with the link between Elan and Full View. The issue is being worked as part of the transition. They were advised to tell customers to try again in a few days.

Mine got switched over. DH and I had a huge credit from IcelandAir (had to cancel next month's trip, unfortunately) and it had been on the Fidelity Amex. It's now on the Fidelity Visa account and the Amex no longer appears in our accounts.
