Hi, I got a gold AMEX in November of 2010. I got the first year fee waived ($175) and I got 10,000 reward points.
However, now there are tons of offers out there for 1-2 years waived and 50,000 reward points.. That's like an extra $400 in my pocket! I tried to call and get 40,000 reward points added to my account, but I haven't had any luck yet. Worst part is, my roommate signed up at the same time as me with the same deal, and he got a really nice lady that just gave him 40,000 reward points over the phone, but every time I call I get screwed over, and no one will help me out.
So I'm thinking I should cancel my AMEX and reapply to get those 50,000 points. I have a United Mileage plus that I can use until I get my new Gold card.
Do you guys think that's a good idea? Or is it going to ruin my credit score?
