Are you referring to upgrades/downgrades?

Nope. Firstly, if you applied the first year, you got 3 TCs for one AF. And it does still make a difference, because you can't triple dip the same way you could before.

A) I said the whole difference was for getting 2 credits in that first 12 month period AKA triple dip.
B) How does it still make a difference there is no scenario where calendar year gets you anything more than card member year, other than that initial extra $300 credit. Even if you downgraded in both scenarios right after the next travel credit hit you would be at the same place. As a matter of fact for cancelling/downgrading the argument can be made that card member year is actually better. Unless I am missing something, in which case please enlighten me.

Uber GC still works through MPX?

Is it safe to assume that parking @ hotel would count as a hotel/travel credit?
