To be fair, they are giving a total of $300 credits
True, but the more compensation you have to give, the more people it may not be beneficial to. For me, I wouldn't keep the card at $595 unless I get a solid retention offer. Obviously, there are some that this will work great for.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

I have had the card for 7 years, this might be the reason I'll finally cancel.

It appears this strategy is working well for them since this is now the third card that has followed this model slowly over time (Platinum, Gold, Business Platinum).
Some new users will see great benefit and sign up, some existing users will cancel, most will not use it, but keep the card because it's a business expense / too much hassle to cancel and change over cards / are getting enough other benefits out of it.

Where there any changes to the Delta GC reimbursement this year?
What is the largest GC dollar amount now acceptable for $200 airline reimbursement?

i think it's time to downgrade my biz plat to green because of this. can i just upgrade back to plat when i need to redeem for 35%?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

How do i claim for the car insurance excess? Got charged 50EUR by Hertz Belgium for a broken car mirror. Used Amex Plat, did not take waiver from Hertz.

Is there anywhere else to “cash out” the $200 except the AA GC’s?
