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 was able to still use my Gold card without any issues, The Plat card had different info (IIRC)

Do you mean to say after you upgraded your Gold to Plat, your Gold card still worked?  ???

Just got this upgrade offer on an ssn and probably going to do it...get the @200 airline credit then downgrade to a Green.  That worked out for you?

@Meshug...is that what you did?

Why downgrade to Green? Downgrade to Gold.

Gold or PRG?

Does the year start over when I upgrade or downgrade regarding the AF?
