Wondering if there's any dps... Around a year and a half ago I got a letter stating that Amex will only charge me 195 for the platinum until further notice.
Anyone else get this? 
Any dps why this when and why this happens? 
If I add additionals to the account, could that make them up the annual fee (besides for the price of the additional)
PMS are welcome.

I get the option for the card # and to create a online login on my new amex cards never tried to select a airline tho...

When i try to create my online account with temporary cc number, i doesn't work.  customer service says i need the physical card, and that they can't expedite it.  Any data points on calling in to select airline?

So did I, but while the link "worked", I got an error message after putting in my info.  When I chatted, they said I need to have my physical card in order for it to work.

What happens if transaction posts after 12/31?
The transaction date should will (ime) reflect the date of purchase. Based on my experience with AA GC's, you'd be fine as long as you purchase before midnight (I think mountain time) on 12/31.

I had this with one of my plats. Email said that they extended the AF for another year at $450, but it just renewed itself another time at $450 (seems to be grandfathered in - not sure the reason, though)

Not450, they charging me 195... 450 makes sense to be grandfathered. Try to explain 195 though

apologies if this is not the correct place, but as I have had all the variants of the Amex Plat I was wondering if anyone that got the email offer to refer two friends to an Amex plat with no lifetime language last month has any spare invites left? If so, please could you PM me? Ta!
