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.

Want to do the upgrade but the link in the OP links to a page that says the offer isn't available. Does this mean the offer is dead?? :'(

As I said I upgraded mid last week. Spent on my gold card that was considered "platinum," and the points posted two days later. Also as I said I called them and told them I was targeted. However, IME, it seems that even if you weren't targeted they would have given it to you. If anyone wants the phone number I called it is: 1 (888) 814-9099. Just try telling them you got a letter in the mail and it would not let you upgrade online, and you were wondering if they would match you over the phone?

Also they never even asked for the offer number.

The link requires $5000 spend for the 25K points. Is there any way to get around the spend?

Calm the heck down! You can't expect a response 2 seconds after you ask your question.

Has anyone had any luck upgrading from the Green or Gold card via the 25k link and after getting the points downgrade it back, and later upgrading again from the 30k link to get the bonus again?

25+25, not 25+30. CMIIW.
It's a big YMMV though and probably needs lots of calling and SMing.
Read back a few pages.
