SPG Retention Bonus?

Postby HarryD » Sun Jul 28, 2013 5:09 pm

Anyone know what bonuses AmEx has been dangling lately in terms of calling to cancel prior to the annual fee hitting? Historically, I think you can usually call to cancel and they'll generally offer something in the neighborhood of 3,000-5,000 Starpoints, which is usually worth it. However, I've heard this has been happening with decreasing frequency and they're happy to get customers off the books. Any feedback?
