1. You cannot downgrade the Green to a no-fee version. You can do a product change to another charge card, but all charge cards have annual fees.

2. You cannot upgrade the CSP to Palladium.



Let us know if you have any questions along the way :)


Agp as always you are correct.

Kak if you participate in November something tells me that the green should be ahead of the sapphire preferred. but the points of the preferred out weigh the green card however after 1 year it still takes a lot of time to get close to redeeming.

you get some nice ideas with American express that you don't get with the sapphire preferred.

I am not sure I understand. Do you think AMEX will become my favorite?

it depends are you doing a lot of traveling on business? if so when you go out with clients is your side paying the bill?

or do you go out a lot even if you don't travel on business? restaurants is what I mean?

I would say about 50% of my average monthly personal expenses are from dining. Me and the girl friend enjoy our nights out.

I run a very low overhead business, I have no office space for any of my reps because all they need is a computer, a phone and some transportation to close deals. I meet them for lunch frequently and pay every time. When I meet with a client (rare) I will pay. When I meet with partner vendors it is a toss up as we both bring opportunity to the table.

I have to say I am liking the ability to pay exactly what is REALLY on the card easily with amex. No luck with CSP. I have to wait a few days for transactions to clear and I can pay. The amex is far easier to track expenditures.
