Blah, downgrading=reapplication to any card. lol, the one thing amex has refused me since I've been a member, to simply downgrade platinum to gold. And I thought that one would have been the easiest of all my requests. Aside from the points, I couldn't justify the 450 per year fee. Hope you have better luck with downgrading.

While I don't use a lot of the benefits, my girlfriend and I take a lot of 3 or 4 day weekend trips each year that aren't far enough to fly and the free room upgrade, late checkout, early check in and $100 food and drink credit/ free American Breakfast when booking through Platinum travel services makes the card more than pay for it self. Food and drink lets us have dinner one night for free plus the free breakfast to our room, late checkout/early check in lets us arrive early enough and leave late enough that we can actually still do stuff on the day we get there and the day we leave. And the room upgrades we get some times are crazy. Last May the room we got upgraded to in the Palace Hotel in San Francisco normally costs $900 a night, versus the $300 a night room we booked for 5 nights. Now we would never have booked that room at full price but that's still $3,000 in benefits before accounting for the food credit and the adjusted check out times.
