As MemberSince99 stated, you would forfeit your Membership Rewards points upon closing your account if you don't have any other cards that participate in the Membership Rewards programme (such as Blue or EveryDay, which cannot be product changed from a charge card). If you do not want to forfeit your points, and you aren't interested in applying for one of those cards, then I would recommend downgrading to the Green Card to preserve your MR points. Hope this helps!
Thanks for all your replies.
So if I don't want to close my account, but just want something other than the Amex Platinum, like the EveryDay card, does that mean I will have to apply for that first, and if I get accepted I can then cancel my Platinum card?
Or what is the best way to do it?
I don't want to lose my points, so I would still like to have a relationship with Amex.
