Does anyone know if I apply for a premium account will I be able to use my original card still until my new one arrives?
Yes, you’ll be able to use it waiting for new one (and even after- you can have and use both)
Thanks for the quick response. Is it worth getting the premium?
That fully depends on your requirements. Have a look at what the premium package offers and decide for yourself
Are premium card holders subject to long waits before speaking with live agents?
In theory not, premium account holder should get “priority” support (without being specified what that actually means) but right now support seems to be swamped in tickets and everything seems to take ages.
