Right now I have the BCP card, I've had it for 2 years, and recently got the SPG card in the last couple months...
I did have the Platinum card in the past, and I want to snag a platinum signup bonus - BUT if I don't by May 2nd I'll lose the ability to get one again. So my thought is, signup for the Platinum card hit the spend requirements for the 40K and cancel the card after the 3rd statement and roughly get a pro-rated refund on the annual fee of about $300. (Would this work, would I lose the points, etc).
Additionally I could snag another 15K on the AEP, but I already have the BCP which it becomes meaningless to have both, so I would probably apple for the AEP and spread the limit of the BCP across my SPG and AEP cards (and keep the AEP open for the 6x and 50% dividend). I'm not quite sure if I should wait 6 months or do this at the same time as the platinum app since I already have two Amex cards.
I also want to figure out my timeline to swap my SPG card for a Delta card so I can get some extra sky miles - all this combined with my existing points would get me enough sky miles for first class to my vacation destination ;-) (Hotel is already taken care of with other points).
Thoughts? Will it work - will Amex call me to the carpet on it?
