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 had a plat card for a month and cancelled 6 months ago. I got approved for the 30k upgrade. Is there any way they'll still give me the 30k points?
Also,
If I have an additional card on my Amex BG card and upgrade to Plat can I get a bonus for upgrading their card as well? Will it automatically upgrade?

Downgraded to Green... What is the recommended minimum time to wait before upgrading again?

When I downgrade to a Green, does that start the clock for waiting for another bonus for a Plat or Gold Business card? Or do I have to completely close the card?

Thanks

When I downgraded, the rep messed up and gave me green instead of green rewards. I just had this corrected today, so I will have to wait and see.
However, for another shot at 30K, I don't have much patience to sit around for 5K.
