Waste paying for the authorized user. Just ask for a plastic version and have your wife use that. It works for me.
What's the plastic version just the same thing with a plastic card instead of metal?
Do you get PP with the plastic version?

So, the way I understand it, you have 30 days from the close of the statement in which the AF is billed.
Call to cancel today and ask if you are still eligible for a full refund of the AF. You may be.

Thank you!

Iv'e had the the CSR since January 2017 and added my wife as an authorized user. Our fee, therefore, is $525 per year.  Shortly after the we got the card we used the $300 travel credit and TSA Pre-check credit. We spend around $25,000 a year on the card and about $2000 per year on travel dining, so throughout the past year we have accumulated 30,000 points.  When we do travel, it is usually on Southwest, which means that we are traveling through smaller airports that do not have lounges. Do you think that it is worth it to keep the card open for next year?
If you put that many miles on a southwest card, what would it be worth to you? Maybe you don't need this card at all.

How does one actually go about getting the National Executive status? I signed up with the Infinite code, but my account still seems to be standard Emerald Club.

You don't get national executive status with the CSR. You can use the infinite code for perks when renting, but it doesn't give you status.

1. If I downgraded my Reserve card and now upgrade again will I continue to be on the grandfathered to have the $300 travel credit by calendar year or it’ll be cardmember year?

2. Can I upgrade, get the $300 credit and downgrade again?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

What  I meant upgrading and downgrading several times to avoid fees, Chase shut down a friend of mine for doing this without any notice, if I misunderstood your question, my apologies.

Ok thx. You understood correctly. But I was just asking if it works. From what you wrote I assume it works but puts me at risk of shutdown. Correct?

Anyone else have data points on trying this?

Anyone have luck recently with lowering the credit line on the Reserve, and get the AF returned?
