Jut got the executive card in the mail.
1)Is it safe to make a $7500 swipe then cancel the card tomorrow or keep it open for the 36 day then cancel (to make sure the mile sport)?
2)I was gonna try calling them after I do the swipe and ask them if they can downgrade the card to a different city card (I have offer for 60K miles) because I didn't realize this has a $450 fee or won't work?
1) Why are you in such a rush to close it? (you have 37 days from when the AF posts)
2) you can't downgrade the Executive card until 1 year.

What do you gain by downgrading? You still pay the AF?

The below benefit for a Citi Exec card holder? What happens if I check in together, but we are on a different PNR, it's already booked with BA, what can I do? Will they let it slide?

First Checked Bag Free†
Get your first checked bag free on domestic American Airlines itineraries for you and up to 8 travel companions. With the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive card, you and up to eight additional people in your reservation can each save up to $50 on round-trip travel.

Depends on the agent working behind the counter.
You can't cancel and rebook on 1 reservation?

Won't actually post to your AA account until about 2-days after statement closing.

It's really not a big deal. The AF posts a day before your 1st statement closes, you can complete the spend before the 2nd statement and still have 6 days to get the AF refunded.
