Downgrade to the green card which has a much lower annual fee and you get a prorated refund for the Annual fee from the more expensive platinum. And then you can cancel the card with much lower annual fee paid.

If you downgrade they give you a prorated refund. But if you cancel the card after 30 days, the annual fee is gone.

United ticket booked through Amex Travel, flight was cancelled. Amex says I can refund it to the card (cash refund)  then request from Membership Rewards to convert the refund back to points. Anyone have experience with this is this true/possible?

I assume you booked it with points, that's always the case when you cancel a refundable ticket that was booked with membership rewards, the refund goes back to the card and you have to ask them to convert the refund to points.

Thanks yes booked with points. And they are easy about this conversion, it’s a regular request…?

You’d rather a .01 redemption?

Any ideas what I can buy on dell for the first $200 credit until 06/30 ? Don't want to wait for the last minute (is this the right thread?)

This is probably the right thread https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=117334.20
Regardless get on to dell and get yourself some jbl headphones, monitors or any other accessory for under $200. Remember 10% sign up discount and portals too.

If you have only 1 credit it may be worth swapping so that you can each get 400 in one period and actually get a laptop…
