i have a large negative MR points balance.  It will take a long time to turn it positive.
any advice?  If i close the accounts will it wipe out the negative? will they allow me to open new cards in the future?
Thank you in advance

What's the problem with just calling? The plat CSR are always friendly and they answer immediately
like don't know if there is any problem calling them it's just a pain they kept me on the phone for 15 min going through all the benefits that I took advantage of and that I didn't to convince me to keep the card they finally did downgrade it but definitely wasn't easy

I'm assuming this is only for the consumer card, not business?

nothing great about these changes. The Uber is nice but you are paying another $100 so it's only a $100 benefit.

5x points is nice as well on hotels but normally if you book through Amex you will not get stay credits or earn points which is a deal breaker for me.

And the gold AUs are not much of an upgrade over the green AUs which are also free

What I noticed is, that having both the Plat consumer and Business card got me as follows:

I booked a  business class ticket using points. Amex first codes it as a purchase charge then credited my account as I used points.
So I received the 50% bonus rebate for having the Plat Business then I also received the 5x points on the initial charge that Amex charged me (besides of course the miles for a revenue ticket!).

Do names have to match to get the 50% back rebate on flights?
