If you have no other valid cards when you close the plat they close the MR account with it. If you have another valid card you are good to go.

I have a friend who recently got the bonus points by "upgrading" his gold card to platinum -points posted aprox 30 days later- and will now just downgrade back to gold.

Usually they don't offer too many points for upgrading.

How much do you want for it?

Sorry all spots taken. I already added 3 cardholders. Can anyone advise if adding more cardholders will work without me having to pay additional fees bec I'm canceling anyway?

Do they scan the card at the airport lounges to make sure the account is still open? If not, im definitely in to jump ship that anyone might steer into an iceberg anytime soon

FYI

In December I got a platinum and canceled w/in 30 days and got the full refund.

I had 2 lounge experiences: During the 30 days that my card was still active I got denied entry into the united rcc in chicago. They have a sign that they don't take it anymore. After I had canceled it, I got in to the China Airlines lounge with my wife (i was flying cathay pacific in the same terminal). They just swiped it and wrote down something and let me in.

It never worked with United and quite frankly I don't understand how it worked in...

The reason for the sign in ORD is because there used to be a CO PC in ORD but it was swallowed by the UA RCC's there which don't take it.

It should only work at AA, CO, DL, and AMEX branded lounges.
