If I want to cancel the Amex Bonvoy Consumer Card (due to fee and lack of card use) how do I make sure I donít lose my points? Does it last for 24 months? What activity needs to be done to keep account alive? TIA

If you haven't used the card in a while I would make a purchase before you cancel it that way you start the clock from now.

Amex offered to upgrade my ED to EDP with 25k bonus for 2k spend. Havent had the EDP yet. Will that effectively block me from getting SUB at a later date?

Yes.
What you can do is sign up for the EDP then right afterwards upgrade your ED.
(Might need to keep the offer open on another device so you don't loose it when applying for the EDP)

Its not a bad offer anyway. Dont want to kill 5/24 over some extra MR whats the highest offer for EDP lately? Not worth the pull either.

Once you accept the upgrade offer you will never be able to sign up for the EDP with the bonus.
Keep in mind chase has tightened on chase biz cards and i don't think keeping below 5/24 is still a good idea. IMO
EDP highest is 30k via incognito.
Amex 99% of the time dosnt pull for existing customers.
