Call them and I wouldn't be surprised if they offered you a pro-rated refund

They will prorate a refund if you call

What did they say when you called and asked?

I just cancelled mine today. They prorated and gave me back ~$82

Just ask...

Note that you will need to spend your entire points balance if you have any beyond the 100 points you've recently earned. I don't remember if you have to before you cancel or if you have a grace period, but it's short if you do.

Other way is to get another amex card and link the rewards membership accounts! Once you cancel the prorated amount automatically comes back to your personal card. Even the points dont expire or get forfieted

Anyone just getting tired of their partner on a whole new level with WFH?

Is there a way to restrict character count, or note characters over X number, in a cell? (Ideally, like Twitter where you can see how many over and decide whether to proceed) — or is there an alternate to excel that does so/is meant for word processing (spell/gram check)? Context: client wants a template for copy input/planning that mirrors a defined UI of an internal L&D platform. The platform only shows a certain number of characters before adding “read more” — & the desire is to limit that
