If you own it in 2 calendar years, you can get the airline $200 reimbursement twice.

I have a amex gold premier rewards card and wanted to  upgrade to the new amex platinum and get a bonus. I called amex and told the rep that I wanted an offer to upgrade my gold card he said that he manually put it in the system and I should receive a offer by April 10th to upgrade and get a sign up bonus. Is this something they do or I shouldn't hold my breath

Few quick questions:
1- how can I  use the airline credit for United gift cards? Does the United Milage x app still work?
2- how long does it take for the 50% point rebate to post for amex plat bonus
3-how long from annual fee hitting do you have to downgrade card to avoid the fee?

Thanks

1- read up thread for DP's
2- usually within a day. If you need it sooner or it's taking too long, they can do it manually.
3- tread carefully
