Oh first time hearing about them...
So they can take away points after gating a retention and downgrading/cancel as well?

a friend of mine called in to downgrade his platinum to a green and was transferred to a 'different team' that downgraded the card for him, but two days later he saw that his '2016' pggm travel credit was reversed.....
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

That's crazy..seems they're cracking down.  Got retention 3 weeks ago,  is there any safe time to wait?

These adjustments didn't come out of nowhere. Did you downgrade or cancel soon after receiving bonus? Were you eligible for the bonus according to the terms of the offer?

RATs?

Didn't downgrade or cancel.
How do I unlock my account without risking whatever is left?
