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?

-1 Also had the same thing the rep told me they're  reviewing all the 100k offers it could be DROPR but heard from a lot of people having this issue

so what. what are they reviewing them for?

I'm assuming you're talking about the leaked 100k link?

What did they say when he called?
How long was his card open?
The card was open for just a few months, and they didn't say anything special when he downgraded.
(Also he got the travel credit for 2017 through AA gift cards and that wasn't reversed)
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Didn't downgrade or cancel.
How do I unlock my account without risking whatever is left?
Did ever have the card in the past?

I just called to cancel my platinum card, and the rep told me that I will loose all my points if I cancel since I have no other amex cards (aside from as an au). Is that info correct? He recommended I convert to the no fee Everyday card to retain my points, but that would require a credit pull since I'm switching from a charge card to a credit card. I definitely would rather avoid. If my only solution is to switch to Everyday, I may as well signup with a bonus...Is this all correct?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If he converts to the Everyday vs me applying will they still require a hard pull?

I got a charge Within the week of adding it. (by a platinum it's every additional card holder $75 and by the gold it's after 5 additional.)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If you want to avoid the hard pull why don't you downgrade to a green card.?
