"You will receive a full refund of the annual fee if the card is cancelled within 60 days of the fee posting."
I believe the full refund is only within 60 days of the card being open, not 60 days since the charge appears after the first closing. This is what a CSR once told me. Please confirm the Wiki.

"The refund will generally be posted to your account automatically upon closure. You can then click on "Dispute/Inquire about a charge" to have either A) a check mailed to you or B) the credit balance transferred to another card. Keep in mind that if you chose option B, the account you transfer the balance to will have its points reduced by the amount of the credit balance."
IME option B will only work if you are carrying a balance on the card you want to transfer the credit to. They did not want to give me a credit balance on another card. (The credit was for 1k)

I wrote a long post about that ESPECIALLY for you!
Feels good?
Now, please do the minimum and just click on it.
Thanks and good luck!

You wrote a long post on how to do this or an issue with trying to use United for the $200 ?
Reason I am asking is I followed the instructions for this and did it on United. (or I thought I followed the instructions)
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

Unm.... I guess. You probably won't get more than 5k depending on how much you spent on it.

I saw many people apply both Platinum and Platinum Mercedes card at the same time. I thought that the new term doesn't allow people to get bonus for similar products?

If your applying for the first time its possible and even if not YMMV.

I successfully applied for both platinums (MB and regular) back around November and received both 50K bonuses. (never had any plats or golds before)

<deleted reference to larger signup bonuses>

Edit to add, found on SD.
Edit twice. deleted a link to larger signup bonuses...i'm guessing I may have violated a site rule about signing up through other sites.  Sorry.

Alas, now I see that creditcards.com/creditmatch is offering 100K for the regular.  Doh! (to get this offer, enter your information except for SSN and see what they bring back.)  They're also offering $250 on the Blue Cash Preferred.
Well, I currently hold a Gold Card. Wish I canceled this card earlier. In the T&C it states that the bonus is not for people that has AMEX Gold, Zync within 90 days. I know that now AMEX is really strict on this policy :(

I would delete this is.

OK, removed...did I get the reason right for why it should be deleted?  Thanks for pointing it out.
