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.

Got a targeted 50k- 10k offer.
Just making sure this is even I already had product in the past?
Right?
And it's not a hard pull right?

So I got the offer for 50k after 10k spend, but the language says it is only for first time upgrades. I did this about 4 years ago, how would I know if I qualify?

If Amex tells me by phone that I qualify is that reliable?

follow up, got the points

Yes, as long as you haven't upgraded that particular card before.

how about if i havent had the card before, but i upgrade now, downgrade later, and then decide to sign up for the card. Does upgrading me now exclude me from getting a bonus in the future as a new card applicant?

The sign up bonus is only available if you've never had the card before.

The bonus terms preclude any previous cardholders, whether it was from opening or an upgrade, and whether they received a welcome bonus or not.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
