Can I still get into Centurion lounges with an old, unexpired plat card that has since been downgraded to green?   
What is the difference if the downgraded card is the Primary's or the AUs?
I do not believe you can. You can access SkyClubs though, when flying DL. As for your second question, I'm not sure what you're asking. With regards to lounge access, both AU and primary are pretty much the same, as long as they are both plats.

With the Plat one, yes. YMMV.

With the plat one no. If you get lucky and they don't swipe it or look at it, then yes. If you flash a Citi doublecash and nobody sees you, you can get in too.

I'm sorry, it doesn't work at the centurion lounges, I was thinking DL. (I blame @as2 for mentioning sky clubs, that's what I was try to say)

Sorry I know this has been asked before but I can't seem to find it. Does the mpx app definitely give 5x MR for the personal Platinum?

Are the 100k targeted links transferable ? If yes, online or just by phone ?

Ask your accountant. If it's a card you use for you're business, I don't see why not.

Still not 50% back, but at least they raised the BP rebate limit for high spending accounts.
