If I used my $100 Gold travel credit and then upgrade the card to a Platinum, would I receive another $200 for 2020? Or only another $100?

Amex reps are claiming they're unable to change the selected airline midyear b/c I've already partially used the credit. I've never before experienced resistance with that request.
So far I'm 0/3 on HUCA's.

I always get resistance, even before using the credit. Did you try chatting online? Keep on pushing.
