Last time this question was asked on DDF it caused a mess..
He's not asking for a link to the link. He just wants to know if maybe this guy used the link that went public, thereby negating the DP that downgrading right away is a clawback.

No disrespect to you but some people are so greedy. You got 100k points, you got a $200 airline fee reimbursement and will get another $200 on Jan 1, plus free global entry why dont you just leave the card open until next year and then downgrade it.

/end rant
If I offer you a free $300, would you decline it ?

its not the same thing. The correct comparison is someone already gave you a free $1300 and you go and ask him for another $300. That is called being greedy.

Have you ever opened a cc that had a af, and closed it asap to get the sign up bonus with paying the AF ?

not really most ccs that have big AFs give the credits so I take the 2 credits and cancel after the year. All others are mostly free in year 1

They give you the bonus so you should keep the card, not just double dip the credits and run. Canceling after the first year is greedy too. You can draw the line where you want to, but I wouldn't get all self righteous.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

More like taking $1300, and turning it into another $300.
 We can agree to disagree on whats considered greedy and what's not.

I never claimed to be righteous. Im just saying that sometimes people get extra greedy. In the first year technically you are not paying the AF out of pocket since you are getting it back. Once you get to the 2nd year and beyond you are actually paying $250 for the AF so I can see why someone would want to cancel it.

Again thats just my opinion obviously lots of people disagree with me and I'm fine with that.

Are there still Clawbacks happening nowadays or did the Clawbacks that everyone here is talking about happen not long after that link went public?
