Also, how long should I expect to have to wait before getting the bonus? I just got a CSP and have started putting most of my travel stuff on there, but I'm worried that taking that off of Amex will hurt my chances of getting Plat or at least getting a bonus.
Bonus question: I'm travelling soon and considering trying to upgrade before that. Should I ask if I can get some sort of a bonus when I do that over the phone?
My memory is a little fuzzy of exactly how it went down but I do recall getting a 50k bonus for going from Green to Platinum. I also was able to have my Green AF credited as I had just paid it a few months earlier. If I recall, the bonus posted to my acct before my card showed up in the mail.
I think that’s the real reason they like you to wait 13 months, most folks probably don’t ask for an AF refund…
To answer your question about traveling, the only value I (personally) get out of my Plat these days is travel related so if you have a trip lined up best to pull the trigger now.
