Did a search but came up blank.
I bought a ticket for my wife through my biz plat using points. Is there any way she can enter lounges with my card if she's traveling alone? She's not an AU, but we have the same last name and address on our IDs.

No, why don't you make her an AU before the trip and cancel our after?

If I downgrade to Green, the prorated annual fee will be refunded at next statement closing. If I then cancel the Green before next statement closing, will I still get the prorated refund?

Best thing to do at this point is probably to buy UA club passes if the airport's she's flying out of have clubs.
