Amex closed my account after a FR, which airline would be the best to transfer my points to (that's the only way I would be able to sell it)?

AC would probably be a good idea.

1) Any benefits to keeping the amex plat corporate card with $595 AF?
I get priority pass from the Sapphire reserve.
Cant see much use out of it.

2) MY 30 day to cancel is May 3rd, and like an idiot I didn't use the dell or airline credit.  If I make the dell/airline purchase today and cancel card on the 3rd (2 days) Im assuming I most likely won't get the credit?

3) Anyway to downgrade later and get a pro-rated?

No unfortunately card has to be active when credit posts. I too didn’t use the dell. But I was able to get them to give me a $100 credit to stay on. I called about 2 weeks before my 30 days was up (today). I canceled yesterday. You may want to call today and see if they will give you some sort of credit. Tell them you didn’t get to fully experience benefits and are considering keeping car but unsure whether you can justify the $550 fee. Also state that the fee went up from the previous $450 within the time period that you have had the card.

The green card is the lowest AF CC you can downgrade to

Not to reiterate, but the AF will prorate if downgraded to the green card?

BTW, did you open the card 30 days ago? or your renewal is coming up?

Correct, you"ll receive a prorated  refund, and will be charged $95 for the green card, which gives you another 30 days to cancel and get full refund

Anyone have success downgrading to green card from Platinum...... and then getting within the year 50K upgrade option back to Plat?

The annual fee is due and I'm trying to justify keeping a card which benefits don't really suit me.

Thanks

That's exactly what happened to me. FYI you wont be able to get the airline credit again in 2019 even after upgrading.
