Thanks for your info, much appreciated.
If you bank with TD, another option would be to go to an in-branch teller to do some 'everyday' banking, and then chat it up and see if this teller is 'motivated' enough to convert it for you. But I don't know how reliable they would be in ensuring you got the promo to stick. They only submit the paper work for final processing. From there, the back-end fiddling could break the offer from sticking, after it is submitted for final review with the credit analyst, so YMMV. I've found that with TD and CIBC, as long as you can get a new card opened, the promo benefits will come through, in spite of what is noted in the terms.
Someone remarked on why I wanted to convert so many cards all at once, earlier in this thread. As I mentioned at that time, sometimes you just have to strike while the iron's hot.
