Did anyone successfully get AMEX platinum to waive the annual fee? I was just told no. Saw a post but it was for corporate cards. I have 30d from when the annual fee hit my card to cancel and get the amount back in full (no pro-rating). There have been a few perks added but the net still seems high for just accumulating points I can get from other free/lower fee cards since I'm not using any AMEX services.

How did u ask?

No I just got the platinum in November

Legends says if you call them to cancel the card, they’ll waive the fees for a year!! But in that case, if you call and they still don’t agree then you gotta decide what you want to do.

They’ve added additional benefits, like the cell phone/cable reimbursement. Now they are giving away PayPal 180$ for free as well. Throw in the 100$ (x2) Best Buy and Home Depot credits, you can easily extract more value from the card that they are giving due to this year.

Thanks! I'm pretty good on supplies but will definitely check out the gift card idea. Haven't been there in forever so didn't think of that.

I asked and got nada

I got a $500 statement credit when I called a few days ago. I’ve had the card for 3 years

I was told no - I'm not currently using any of the benefits (#1 reason I had the card was the centurion lounge) and already used the vast majority of my existing points balance, so I down graded the card. I'll upgrade it again when I can actually use it and get the benefits I'm paying for.

I called to cancel because I wasn't using it and they offered me a $500 statement credit to cover the annual fee.
