25K bonus sign up link
DEAD
Alternative 30K bonus sign up link
(Go Incognito if the link does not work for you.) Sometimes you have to go thru the entering cc info route, bec. the user id route doesn't work sometimes.

Q: It's been a few days since I applied and the changes haven't taken effect yet , should I worry?
A: No. That's perfectly normal.


Q: I'm in my first year of my gold card, will I be charged the AF when I downgrade back?
A:
No. (I think, CMIIW)


The cheshbon is that you upgrade, get the points, buy the AA GC's do the Platinum Guy's Great Mehalech, then downgrade back or close and get the Annual Fee of the Plat reimbursed. If cancelled within 60 days you get it all back; if more than 60 days it is prorated.

I got a banner in my account that I thought was to upgrade an old Blue Cash card for 50K but it turns out to be a new application. I found out after the application was processed but I'm not complaining :)
Was this today?

Yesterday. It was a preapproved banner but after I opened the link it disappeared. Good thing I hadn't closed the application window. I got a screen shot and filled it out!
My 1yr DDF anniversary = 58 CCs, 2.8mil points, 6 new destinations & still feel like a noob! :-)

Did you put in some other applications while you were at it?

I am going to apologize in advance if this has been discussed/confirmed already, but as long as I have open open MR card, I will not lose my MR points, correct? In May, I got a MB Plat and BG card, which I upgraded to Plat. and then to Green, and now have a sizable amount of points. I would like to close the MB Plat. and my personal gold PRG (from January). With my Green business card, I can hold on to my points..

Thanks!

Thanks for clarifying that point.

How long after downgrading to Green should I expect the 5K MR to (perhaps) post?

I wonder if they discontinued that perk due to "high demand".
Did anyone get it recently?

I just got a targeted email offering me to upgrade to platinum and get 25k points. I already did this and downgraded. Will it work again??

I got a call from a rep Alan after upgrading & downgrading back to gold from platinum that due to me being a good customer if I upgrade back to platinum & spend $10k I will get 30,000 MR points. Also the $200 airline & TSA $100 even though I did it already.

$10k spent, 30k MR points posted but no credit on the airline GC & TSA. They claim within 8 weeks it will credit.

So yes its possible to upgrade "again" to platinum & get a bonus, however this was offered by a live rep.

YMMV YMMV YMMV repeat repeat

big difference if a rep puts "special" offer on your account and an automated email on all green cards in a certain category..
