Once again it's another benefits gone for those that actually want to get rid of the card after a few years rather than those that want to get rid of it after a few weeks/months.
Can't fault them, can you? Haha
Think of much money they were losing for Platinum Cards! Several 10's of thousands of points, some people double dipping on the $200 airline credit, and then getting their AF prorated.
I think Nixon did that on a regular Platinum, cancelled it, and was approved for MB Platinum the next day.
Amex policies can certainly lead to unorthodox behavior...
