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 downgraded to the green and got a 15k offer to the gold I did it and now got the offer to the platinum

How long a time period was it between you downgrading to green and getting the upgrade to gold offer?

Also, does anyone else see ads when they login to Amex? Mine never has any, wondering if that's what is keeping me from seeing any upgrade offers.

PUTPAC

It's been done.

Explain you got the mail offer.

Should be simple.

Worked for me.
Unreasonable is not ok. Picky you're entitled to be.

Done that twice already. First time was a no go, second rep said that there is no offer on their end, but she'll note to add this offer to my account and I should try again in a couple of days.

Hmm...Maybe the diff was that mine was noted on my account..

I don't know that is was, but that's a possibility.

I got it on the 1st try.

I told the rep I had this offer but it wasn't working when I tried it and she just gave it to me.

Approx 3 months ago.

the bonus (if you get it) won't keep you from getting the signup bonus, just having the card will.

This message shows up when I click on my BRG on my amex page "Congratulations! Based on your history with American Express, you're invited to apply for an upgrade to the Business Platinum CardŽ. Upgrade today and you can earn 30,000 points and focus on what's next for your business. Learn more"
When I click learn more and click apply it says
"We're Sorry We're sorry; your existing Card is not eligible for this upgrade. Please call the number on the back of your card to apply for an American Express Card."
Should I Call to apply? I tried incognito, but not go.

Just called the CS number for small business (1-800-492-3344) and asked about the upgrade. Was told I can get it and the deal is 30K after spending 10K in 5 months. 
They also throw 10K points at you for signing up the Biz Platinum for the minimum payment and pay later option. Don't have to use it (DUMB DUMB DUMB), but you get 10K points.
All in all, a 40K bonus from. Not too mention the $400 in Airline credits. :-)
