Did you just call the normal customer service line? How long have you been a member?


Called normal customer service gave the quick spiel of due to covid don’t think I’ll find the value they kept emphasizing all of their benefits, they then transferred me to retention and he gave a similar spiel but almost actually canceled I had to emphasize that if there was some sort of spending offer or bonus that could offset the fee I’d love to keep it and see what happens next year. Finally offered the 30k with no spend.

Plat for 3 years, Amex member for last 5. About 50k spend last year (personally only 10k but my AU put in the rest)


Any idea if CSR would do anything similar?

This could be done any time.. even pre covid

@OP - enjoy the high!

You’re doing the lord’s work. I just got a $300 credit for $2000 of spend over next 3 months.
