I downgraded to a better balance over a month ago, and the $75 refund posted by itself a few days ago.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

You: I was told that they were,
Fred: If you convert your account to a no annual fee card, fees will still be assessed.
Fred: However, If you apply for a new card with no annual fee, the fee will no longer be assessed.
You: I was unaware there is an annual fee and was told that If i downgrade card it will be removed
You: isnt that a ridiculous notion? I should close my original account and apply for the same card?!!
Fred: Solomon, our credit analyst will still review the account.
Fred: It will be their decision if the application is eligible to for no annual.
You: when can i excpect a responce?
Fred: Just to clarify, have you applied for new credit card?
You: no I have 2 cards that I received from bofa that came with an annual fee, when i was made aware of this I said I did not wish to pay the annual fees,I was told that if I were to downgrade to a non-fee card then the fee will be waived.I did so and the fee is still there
You: incidentally , when i told my cousin this story he said he got the same card and when the fee hit was told to downgrade card if he did not wish to pay

Fred: Upon carefully reviewing your account, I see that the annual fee assessed is valid.
Fred: The annual fee is used to support the various benefits, features and maintenance available on a consumer credit card. We believe that annual fee is a fair exchange for that value.

You: but I am not keeping the card with those benefits!
Fred: I will be transferring you to a Senior Chat Specialist who will be able to review our conversation and assist you further. Please remain online while you are being connected.

Thank you for choosing Bank of America. Frank is ready to assist you. For security purposes, please remember to close your chat window when completed.
Frank: Hello! I am a Senior Chat Specialist.  Please allow me a moment while I review your previous conversation. 
You: k
Frank: Thank you for waiting, Solomon. I have reviewed your previous conversation and I see that you are referring about annual fee.
You: yes
You: i believe this fee should be removed as I have changed to a non fee card and no longer have access to the benefits that the fee is for
Frank: I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to you.
You: It has indeed
Frank: Please do note that the conversion of account will not remove the fee. In order to have a credit card with no annual fee. You need to open a new card which doesn't have an annual fee.
Frank: Even if you convert the card the card type will be changed and all its benefits. However, the fee would remain the same.
You: isnt that ridiculous that I should have to close my existing better balance card to apply for a new one so I can end up with the same card just without the fee from another card?!!? What is the logic in that?
You: can't you do me this one time courtesy to save us all from the hassle? the other option is for me just to shut down my account and take my business elsewhere...
Frank: We wouldn't wish to lose a valuable customer like you. However, the fee is refunded only if the account is closed.
You: then I must close unless you make an exception
Last text message receivedFrank: I am so sorry about that. However, do you wish me to close the card?

Did you ever notice how long it takes them to reply? I feel like they have a few chats going on at the same time.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
