Sorry for what you went through, I doubt there is anything you can really do after such a response.

How does Amex calculate Marriot points. It doesnít seem to be calculated properly.  Is there somewhere that I can see how the points were earned, itís not matching up with what I believe it should be
Last few months I had the same issue, called them and fixed.

Thanks, I see it now.

Closing a credit card has no "direct" impact on your credit score,

Now, it will effect it if your utilization jumps up, or you credit history goes down

So if the closed card is not (one of) your first (three), and you watch your credit utilization there shouldn't be any impact at all.

am I wrong?
You are correct. I had a card closed by Barclays for not using it for a while, on credit report it showed closed by issuer and did not affect credit score.

Credit Cards / Re: Amex Aspire airline credit is too hard to get now?

I already paid prorated $150 AF in May, upgraded in march. I already got fee credit with gc purchase in may.
I am now charged full $450 AF. Will they claw back the  bonus hilton points that are on my Hilton account if I cancel?

From all the posts I am reading, the $250 airline credit is hit or miss. many are saying you don't get it even on flight taxes , fees or bag fees and sometimes has to be $100 or less sometimes  there is no credit at all.
So I will be wasting $250 in fees minus the free night valued at $200.
Tried downgrading to Surpass but gave me this warning

"As a result of this downgrade, American Express reserves the right to take away, withhold, or freeze any rewards (including acquisition and/or upgrade bonuses) that would have otherwise been earned".

I told the agent this card no longer gives airline credit for flight taxes and fees so the $450 fee is a rip off. someitmes has to be AA or SW or detla flight only with less then $99 in fees or taxes.

After chatting with an agent,

the airline credit is almost dead bacause

Ineligible charges include:
Raul - 7:57 PM
Air freight
Airline tickets
Award ticket fees
Charges processed by Merchants other than the airline the Card Member has selected in (for example, in-flight internet services providers such as GoGo)
Charges made by airline partners (for example, Card Member purchase tickets on selected airline Delta, but purchases food on an Air France flight)
Duty-free purchase
Frequent Flyer purchase
Gift Cards issued by airlines
Point transfer fees
Trip insurance / baggage insurance
Ticket upgrades (Including American Airlines Upgrade Stickers)
Travel agent fees.

I book award flights so if it wont  work on award flight fees or tax then this card is not valuable!
If it does not work for all the above, then what does it work for? Definitely not worth the $450, I downgraded to Surpass a few months ago .
