I just canceled the card last week. I tried to use as many benefits as I could, and some were indeed very nice. I wish the concierge could have secured the concert tickets I wanted.... Anyway, the offers to stay on began with 10000 points to help offset the fee. I resisted and it grew to 15000 points if I spent I think $3000 in the next 60 days. Doable, but why? Still a no go for me. The lounges are really great, but I just don't travel enough. The next offer was the same 15000 points which would be applied directly towards the fee, and the balance could come from my existing rewards acct. (another 30000) for a total, of course, of 45000 to cover the $450. ("costing me nothing!" in the words of the rep.) Sorry, but I'd rather spend the points on travel, not fees. At no time was the fee ever offered at less than $450. The next offer was conversion to another ("lower") card product, which I already have. Wouldn't that show on their screen? Oh well, now I have no Platinum, no Zync and no USAirways from BofA. Not a big Barclays fan but may have to jump on the merger bandwagon with the AAdvantage RedBlueBlack or whatever it is..... The search is on.
