Sapphire Reserve New Annual Fee
« on: February 12, 2020, 10:03:29 AM »
So I opened my card in March and they marked my renewal date for April 1 which gives mte the new annual fee.

Is there anything I can do to be eligible for the $450 annual fee? Or am I out and now I have to pay $550?

if I keep the $450 I will be downgrading my card to the preferred but if I get the $450, im keeping the card another year.

Any advice would help!
Thanks in advance!

Any current way to avoid the annual fee?

I meant to ask if there is some way to keep or get back the Reserve while avoiding the AF.
