My AF on the biz plat just posted and i want to cancel without losing my points. Do I have any options of converting to another product that will allow me to transfer my points to miles? Being a charge card it seems I don't have many options.

I have the Amex everyday blue cash but they aren't allowing me to convert that to the points version because  they said you can't transfer from a cash back to MR. HUCA ? Any other ideas?

Thank you

That's a good idea. Prob worth it. How long would it take to take effect? My please pay by date on the Plat is 3/23 which makes the timing tight. Would it be active that quick that it would hold my points? I would presume that I'd get approved instantly.

How long after the AF posts can I get the fee refunded?

After 14 days, amex rep manually refunded Airline credit for AA GC.
Once credit posted, I called again to downgrade to green. First asked for retention bonus, denied since she saw I just applied for new BP.  Rep knew too much abt my account history. When I asked her abt the benefits of green card, she's like 'I see you have had that card in the past..' She said she's doing this for 27 yrs...We had a pleasant conversation, yet I'm still nervous she's gonna flag my account or something...

Wow. Wish we would have such reps when you need them, not when we need the dumb ones.

Officially the Uber credit is for US rides only. Does this mean that the account has to be a US based account, or that the ride has to take place in the US? Regardless is this enforced or it can be any rides?
