here is the process

You need to do the CreditCards Card Match here: https://www.creditcards.com/cardmatch/

I put in all my information without my SSN. I had to do it in an incognito browser tab. Amex Platinum 100k Link showed up for me... Clicked "Apply Here" and it worked! I was approved for 100k MR after $3,000 Spending in 3 Mo's. I received a confirmation e-mail shortly thereafter with my approval information.

Also placed a phone call to American Express to confirm the sign up offer.

Do they deduct any of the paybacks (Global Entry, Airline Fees, etc.) from the pro-rated amount they give back to you?

For hypothetical example, if you did Global Entry and the $200 worth of reimbursement, that would be $300 that Amex shelled out. Do they consider that when they pro-rate the $450 membership fee or would they give you a full $375 back if you cancelled after 2 months ($450/12*10 =$375)?
no they don't but when you call to cancel they will mention all the things you've taken advantage of (ie 100k pts, $200 airline credit, $100 global entry) and try to convince you to keep the card.

the only drawback to closing/downgrading the card as far as I can tell is losing the airport lounges (i think it's called priority pass)

Hmm I already have airline rewards on a couple of other cards..so I've been reading here to see which is the best site for selling points. It sounds like http://www.rewards2cash.com/ is the way to go. Anyone have a bad transaction with them? Or want to give an opinion on them?

Just sold all the points to Bruce, he is pretty good. Email him for the quote. Google Bruce hunter or something.

As I met spending requirements in first month and I did not get the points I called them up they said it could not take a few weeks after payment.

So I still don't see any points not even the ones i made for my purchases and i e-mailed them, they rejected me.

"I have checked your Platinum Card ending in XXXXX and see that promotion on this account was to earn 100,000 Bonus points after making eligible purchases of $3,000.00 within the first 3 months of Cardmembership.

As per the Terms and Condition: Welcome bonus offer is not available to applicants who: "Have or have had this product within the last 12 months or have/had a Card within the same product family in the last 90 days (Consumer) / 12 months (OPEN)".

I see that you have a Premier Rewards Gold Card ending in YYYYY .Therefore, your account is not eligible for this promotion.

I would appreciate your understanding that we are bound by certain Policies and Procedures and sometimes we may not be able to completely satisfy your needs due to this reason.
"


I've replied back to him strongly disagreeing saying prior to activation i confirmed im eligible and that based on their term it appears that they mean for people who applied for Gold Card within 90 days.

Any suggestions?

Anyone tried to cancel that card after getting points? Any chance that would leave a bad rep on our account if by opening and closing cards within 2 months of applying?

Today I closed my spouse additional card. 2 weeks after I got it as soon as the $100 for global entry has been refunded/credited back. There was no mention and no charge on the account for the $175 for the additional card. So far I got $200 back for an airplane ticket and $200 refunded for 2x global entry and 100k points... $450 -$200-$200 = $50 for 100k points is an amazing deal

I didn't close the main card since the points haven't been used yet. I closed only the additional card that I opened only to take advantage of a second $100 credit for global entry program. I'm not sure if ill close the main card. We have 7 days next year when we can get another $200 airline credit without paying the annual fee of $450
