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.

Im stating, and asking why. Weren't the AUs meant to remain as BRG cards. I didnt specify for them to be upgraded. Will amex charge me for these?
Did this happen to anyone else?

Did you spend 10k on each of those cards? or did the bonus points post after first purchase (as it was by the 25k days)
