Called Amex Plat to downgrade my card and they said they will charge back my 100k bonus miles, and if I don't earn enough miles they will actually charge me $$ for it. Is this accurate? Anyone have experience with this?
Never heard that they charged $$
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

How much is the AF for AUs? After how long of any AU being open is the AF charged? Immediately?

If I have Jetblue set as my $200 airline credit and I book a Jetblue flight with points through Amex travel to take advantage of the 35% bonus, and subsequently (before the points rebate posts) change it to United in order to get a 35% rebate on a United flight, will my Jetblue 35% rebate points still post?

Real travel insurance is better (covers more things) and is cheaper than a seat upgrade.

Agreed, also you won't have coverage by buying an upgrade, I don't think.

If your relative booked you, you might be covered on their card.

I usually pay around $40 for 2 people. It depends on where you're flying, the length of the trip, and mostly, the trip costs you incurred. Do not buy the insurance they try to sell you when booking a ticket. Compare policies at squaremouth.com.

Can an AU use their priority pass after they cancel their AU card?
