Try calling amex, many people have been offered 50k for $10k spend when upgrading

Alternative 30K bonus sign up link DEAD
(Go Incognito if the link does not work for you.) Sometimes you have to go thru the entering cc info route, bec. the user id route doesn't work sometimes.

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.

Why cant I get the 30k link to work? Every time I try (including Incognito) I get the following message:

Quote
We're sorry. We are experiencing temporary system outage. Please try again later or call the toll-free number on the back of your Card.

Any ideas?

I believe it means you do not qualify.

Are you logging in or entering your card number? Many in the past have reported it working better without logging in.

Does anyone know if I purchased award tickets with BA this past week (through AA, but charged by BA) can I still add BA as my selected airline to get the award booking fees refunded (about $100) on this statement or did it have to be selected before the purchase?

Upgraded my BGR in mid-November, spent the $10k and the bonus points posted very quickly (maybe within a day of hitting the spend). Waiting to do the PGGM in January and then downgrading back to the BGR. Thanks everyone!

Thanks. I went through the wiki initially.

My main question though is does anyone have any experience registering after the purchase but within the same billing period and getting the refund?

I've previously tried both ways & it didn't work. I just did it without the login and it went through. Go figure!
