If I got the credit this year and then downgraded to gold, and then I upgraded back to platinum, can I get the credit again?

Not the same year, you can get one if each per year.

Most data points seem to show, if the credit wasn't spent (and possibly if it was) its fairly easy to change airline, by chat. I'd assume the same applies from year to year.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.
