I missed the the 35k signup offer. I see that dan thinks this may be the last such offer, being that theres a possibility that they will close down the card. I never had this card yet and my question is, should I sign up for the card to have it for all the benefits it offers before they stop offering the starwoods card, and this way ill be grandfathered in to the benefits. (on the chance that they shut it down)? Or will they give a warning before they stop the card and ill be able to sign up then?
Thanks

My annual fee is up now and I would like to close the card, will they award the points for charges that didn't print on a statement yet? according to CS they wont. is that true?

My AF just hit, grandfathered in at the $65 rate. Is it worth keeping this card open at all? I find between AMEX MR and Chase UR, I don't use starpoints much at all.

how are some people grandfathered in at $65 and others are not?

I can't say for certain I'm grandfathered (don't remember getting a letter). But this is my second renewal at $65 (opened Apr 2015).

I think only whats been transferred already is safe. Why not wait till the points are transferred to starwood after statement closes?

Well, if it's 30 than I won't be able to get it refunded by the time the statement closed. Any work around for this? I have 10k SPG's pending.
