Topic Wiki

I'm trying to summarize success stories mentioned in this thread.
From @TC610
It never hurts to ask - retention is a big YMMV.  If you don't like the offer given to you when you call for retention, ask for a better one.  Scan through the thread (use the search bar - reading through 130+ pages of posts can be time consuming) to see what others have been offered. Please post what you've got if its better then whats in the WIKI

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

Yesterday. $350, no spend. Other offer was $100, no spend (don't ask me why they had that as an option). No points offer at all.

Varies. Not a lot. Only number that counts for me, at least, is 13 months since last retention offer.

I called the retention team yesterday to cancel my business platinum, got offered a $695 statement credit, no points offer at all.
This actually leaves me with a profit of $100 as my AF was just $595.

Zilch for JetBlue Plus personal card. Only got free refunded the first year. No other offers afterwards.
