Is there any problem lately with downgrading a Business Platinum to a Business Green?

New Uber benefit that starts next week

To receive the benefit, Platinum Card Members must add an eligible Platinum Card as a payment method on an Uber account. Starting March 30th, 2017, $15 in Uber credits will be added to that Uber account each month with a bonus $20 in Uber credits in December. Uber will apply the discount at the end of ride, and it will be reflected on ride receipt.

Any ideas how to maximize if you have more than one plat card, husband/wife? Can you add them both to one account and get $30?

I tried via chat and they said as of a month ago there's a dedicated line for that and I must call in to make the change. It sounds a little suspicious.
Also upthread I read that it's been this way for a while.
Now what to do?

My question was if it's safe to call in about this. If they have a special team reviewing platinum card changes. All the other cards can be done via chat.
Is it a red flag if I try to downgrade a card that was opened a little over 2 months ago?

If you book with points, it shows up as a charge and as a payment. Does it count for min. spend? Thanks.

Well, it gets refunded so I don't see why that helps you
I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

Amex rep told me that it does count, because it's considered a payment, not a refund. I know, I know... ;)
