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.

I did log in.
Will try, thanks.
Just tried without login and it worked.
So i can start spending now, but it said the upgrade is only for the primary card, so the au's stay open as brg? does their spend count?

Why would you upgrade before you do the spend/get the points from the gold?
