I was thinking that they charged the difference in annual fees between the Platinum and Gold till the date the annual fee is due.

Probably for the last month of card membership year.  Assuming your gold card renewal would have been sometime in February...

37.50 seems like one month of a platinum card fee before next years fee hits

Common thing, they post a pending charge to see if the card is valid and then repost the charge, it falls off sometimes for a day or 2.

I booked a flight on Amex travel using points and I got a refund of $200 cuz of the travel credit. So the points were debited from my account but I got a credit on my statement which doesn’t really correspond to any charge cuz I already got the full credit for using points.

  In short I got a double credit on my statement for the ticket charge, once for using points and second for the travel credit.

I also redeemed a reward ticket with  jet blue points and got back the $5.60 charge.

You'll get charged after the laptop is already by you. I've had that. But you won't get it for free, sorry.
