You won't be able to upgrade a BCE as you can't product change from a credit card to a charge card, but if you're getting a Plat you might as well get the bonus IMO.
After reading and researching I think I have a good shot. I have clean history, the only thing I did though was I applied for the Amazon Credit. They gave me a $200 limit. One month later I closed it... I should have just left it..
Im going to wait until after Christmas, so I can charge a bunch and pay it all off, then apply by contacting AMEX. Not just filling out the application online. See if they can do it with a soft hit, and then they can see me charge 3-4k in one month and pay it all off... The BCE card had 15 months no interest, so paying it off in full hasn't been a priority. It is now. lol
