(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:
Yes you will


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.

Most likely will not get the points, but YMMV.
Thanks. Do you recall anyone reporting that they DID get the points?

hey new to the forum

I noticed on my account that there was a banner that said i am pre-approved for a platinum card and 25K MR points. Is this offer worth taking? I already have a Gold card which is what i would be upgrading to a platinum card, do you know if they charge for the first year?
Also since its a pre-approved offer will it Take a credit pull?

Thanks

I read a Alot couple things im still not so clear on (excuse my ignorance) This wont pull my Credit Report correct? It appears that i will be charged for the card for the first year $450 but i can then Downgrade after receiving my MR points to a Green card within 60 days and they will refund me the Yearly fee, correct? Can i downgrade to from a Plat to a Blue card and still keep my MR points?

TIA

Yes to all. The downgrade to Green is for another 5K. With Blue, you can't transfer to airlines (unless you have another "higher" card).

How long does it take for the upgrade points to show as pending?
