Q: It's been a few days since I applied and the changes haven't taken effect yet , should I worry?
A: No. That's perfectly normal.


Q: I'm in my first year of my gold card, will I be charged the AF when I downgrade back?
A:
Yes you will


The cheshbon is that you upgrade, get the points, buy the AA GC's do the Platinum Guy's Great Mehalech, then downgrade back or close and get the Annual Fee of the Plat reimbursed. If cancelled within 60 days you get it all back; if more than 60 days it is prorated.

Got an email from AMEX to upgrade my business gold card (that I got 60K MR points for after spending 10K) to a plat and get another 25K MR points!

Clicked on upgrade and was instantly approved.  Just need to spend $1 by 12/31/11.  Plus I'll get $200 in airline fees :)

Anyone else get it?

Not sure about personal cards.

Never upgraded like this before, hopefully no hard pull was required.  Total of 85K MR for this card now. 
Even better than the Consumer Plat card that I canceled already.

Got my 25K points for upgrading to Plat, the $200 airline credit, and Priority Pass membership.  All in 1 week.
And that's besides the 60K I got originally for opening the gold card!
Gotta love this game!

Is that for a new card or an upgrade? My wife got the 25K upgrade offer but I didn't. How do they choose?

did they charge you the $450 annual fee or was it waived?
