Can you do that after using the $300 credit? I think the benefits of the 3x points for travel and restaurants will keep me on CSR until I hang up my consulting cleats

Jesus Chris these acronyms are a bit much. I was trying to figure out why you were getting a $100,000 bonus then downgrading to get another $450

Chase Sapphire Platinum.

Annual fee of the card is not pro rated, it is never pro rated on fact. They charge full fee first, then you can use it later. You don't get back this fee once you pay. No pro rated refunds
