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.

With a personal or business card?
I tried downgrading a personal and upgrading a biz and no go on both. Has anyone noticed a difference between the chat and calling (both of my attempts were with chat)?

It's illegal to raise the AF in the first year on a personal card. That's why people have such a hard time upgrading to platinum.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I've never upgraded personally. I've seen it be mentioned before with success and additionally a friend telling me he had success quite a number of times. IME downgrades have always been successful via chat. Maybe not first time every time but eventually got it.

I just received a call to upgrade my BRG to the Platinum and get 50k MR after spending 10k in Five months (No Credit Check). I will get a 200.00 airline credit. I will be charged 450.00 prorated (which  is only three months to my anniversary date, so ~113.00).

I went for it  :)!

I recently was emailed an offer on my bgr for spend 5k get 10k bonus points. It was buried in promotions, I'm lucky I even noticed it. Maybe you had the same on your card without knowing it
