yes had the same story.

Nothing happened, as in you were able to downgrade/cancel the card and keep the retention bonus?

How strict are they with clawing back the signup bonus if cancel before the AF?

Canceled my wife's like this because we got the PRG card at the same time and thought that it would be better for us as an everyday card. She was targeted for the 100k plat (first amex card) and now her points have been frozen for the last 8 weeks...

I downgraded an AU my bus plat account to green card b.c. I thought adding AU was free (must have missed the fine print)... Will the spending put on the au card still count towards 15k threshold?

Cool. That's what I assumed, but wanted to confirm. How do you know for sure?

Give them a call. Any and all spending on any card that you are the primary account holder of, will go towards your monthly balance and in turn, you're spending threshold

I got a few conflicting reports on my Amex Mercedes Platinum. I was told I couldn't downgrade but a prorated refund on the annual fee was available. I was then told by a retention specialist that I was transferred to that it could be downgraded to any charge card (but not EDP) but that there was no longer a prorated refund available because it is after 30 days. I was also told that retention offers aren't available for cards within their first year of receiving the signup offer.

I know DROPR so what is actually the case. Can I downgrade, are there prorated refunds (I believe from DDMS that there aren't) and are there retention offers.

If you downgrade to green you'll get a prorated refund to the new AF of $95.

So if $120 prorated I'd save $25?

These adjustments didn't come out of nowhere. Did you downgrade or cancel soon after receiving bonus? Were you eligible for the bonus according to the terms of the offer?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
