Nobody knows. I think some people have had trial gold triggered after the first dose of points. Maybe the system is triggered by a particular code that accompanies a bonus allocation of points (which may not be there for a manual adjustment). This would seem to explain the allocation to people who got the cards before the promotion started. If I were you, I would wait a while after getting next month's statement before chasing it. You don't want to draw attention to the fact you did not actually comply with the requirements.Thank you for your reply. Any idea what actually triggers the exclusive benefit? I called velocity and was told the trial gold will only start once 4x bonus point has been received. Does it mean that even if I wasn't automatically upgraded to trial gold, I can still call velocity and told them I've already got 4x 25K bonus points and ask for a manually upgrade?
