downgrade spg- too many blue cash cards
« on: June 25, 2013, 06:35:35 PM »
Hi all,

So in a nut shell, my spg is going to turn one in a few days. I've called numerous times, on different days, and alas no retention bonus/incentives will be given. I just called amex to downgrade my SPG to a blue cash, the lady on the phone said that she can't do it because the blue cash only allows for a $2k credit limit and my spg is $5k. She did sound new, so she might be totally wrong. Has anyone encountered this type of situation before?

thanks :)

fyi- i do plan on HUCA (just wanted to get some input from others)

Ok, is it a yes or no?

When I called the second time, the lady said she would need to send in a request to "upgrade" me to the blue cash.

Ok better question: how many blue cash cards do you have or have you had?

I have 1 blue on which I have 2k cl and 1 on which I have 5k, so I don't understand why you were told only 2k.
