1) I just got an offer to upgrade green biz card to plat. Spend $10k in 5 months for 50k MR - I am assuming it's a good offer, correct?

2)I just purchased airline tickets for $7k last week on priceline. Has anyone ever tried changing the credit card so that it's now charged onto the plat card instead of the sapphire pref card I used? I am assuming there's no way. Just wanted to hear from ya'll..

3) Lady on the phone said I can utilize the $200 credit for 2018 and 2019 -- if I cancel plane tickets, will it be clawed back? Is it the same instructions for receiving credit on the Ritz Carlton card? Or there's another way to go about it?

thanks

1. Yes
2. No.
3. Can likely be clawed back. Amex does monitor upgrades for abuse.

As long as you hold the card.

You lose it as soon as you cancel the card, takes up to 30 days for them to report it, usually sooner.

You can down grade to Green card and keep the points the annual fee is $95

Is this for sure, and is there a difference if one used the points already?

Won't they monitor and pull the credit back once you close the card?

Does upgrading a gold biz  into platinum ruin your chance to get a sign up bonus if never had platinum before?
