Paypal Extras Upgrade a Mistake?
I got an email from Synchrony Bank saying that my Paypal Smart Connect account was being upgraded to a Paypal Extras MasterCard. It was fairly vague and didn't provide much info at all. When I called Synchrony to get more info, they said that the email had been sent by mistake. Has anyone ever heard of a mistake like this? How do mistakes like that happen?

Well for sure, Synchrony Bank would be very embarrassed and someone is probably out of a job for that error.  The Paypal Extras Mastercard is still with paypal except it offers a Mastercard that can be used anywhere that mastercard is accepted, not just locations which accept paypal.   The mistake was probably a programming error where some parameters were set in the system for those that were qualified.  If they said it was a mistake, it is likely that you'll receive another email about a programming error and some type of apology.
