When they offer an upgrade offer can you do that even if you already have the card you would upgrade to?
yes
I doubt you would get the upgrade offer if you currently have the card.
I've had it a few times.

Do the no language sign up bonuses still exist for the Plat card?

I guess for the Australians amongst us: there's this card which I've not seen promoted here.
150,000 points
1450 annual fee
https://www.americanexpress.com/au/credit-cards/the-platinum-card/?ieep=02AF4103

As a half newb, in general, Does one forfeit these points when the card is canceled?

rules exclude upgrades (though this had worked in the past). just like they now buckled down on gift cards, i was wondering if anyone had success on upgrades.

With the new rules, will I forfeit the points if I pay off before the next cycle closes? Or it must be minimum due date.

You'll get the points as long as the payment is not late.

Called Amex Plat to downgrade my card and they said they will charge back my 100k bonus miles, and if I don't earn enough miles they will actually charge me $$ for it. Is this accurate? Anyone have experience with this?
