Dunno about that one specifically but if a plat is good enough then a cancelled plat is too

An active platinum definitely works there. How do you know a cancelled one does too?

Does Amex usually charge the AF for the platinum right away?

I upgraded my gold to pltnm and they didn't charge me the AF then, I was gonna downgrade it but forgot,
Today 60 days after I upgraded they charged me $112 fee,

So my question is, do I have now 30/60 (not sure the correct amount) days to downgrade and get the fee back or I missed it?

CMIIW, but should be from when the fee posts.

Interesting, I also applied 12/22 but my AF posted at the very end of my initial statement, on 1/21.

I got an online offer to upgrade my PRG to a Plat and get 50K points.   I did this in December.  The points never posted.  After about 8 phone calls to CSR and opening up research inquiries, I was told today that I am not eligible for the Plat bonus because 1) I got the PRG bonus and 2) I have received many courtesy points from Amex.   I was quite upset but this CSR was adamant... no 50K bonus points for me. 

Any suggestions? I'm thinking of just cancelling the darn thing and getting the fee back.

Was there a minimum spending threshold that you needed to hit? If so, did you hit it?
