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.

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.
25k link is dead so its irrelevant

It's the fact that I had a MB Plat back in May going to affect my chances of getting the 25k through huca/sm? And has anyone had luck getting the 25k after upgrading with the 30k link?

Someone should just update the OP and clarify that the 25k deal is dead.
