Are the clawbacks isolated to MR cards or are there DP's for cobranded cards as well?
Risk is opportunity

Its on co-branded cards as well, although (IME) they do not take back the points once it is in airline etc. account
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Anyway, why the rush? You don't pay the annual fee either way...
What do you mean? If you downgrade you have to pay a prorated fee

If you cancel the card within 30 days of when the AF is billed you will get a full refund

if your in review and they tell you for a delta card that your ineligible BUT the bonus and earned miles show up on your first statement, you think theyll transfer over after the second statement closing?

I understand, But if somebody doesn't want to close the account, They want to downgrade it, The only option is to downgrade before the 2nd AF posts, or else that have to pay part of the AF.
