I tried downgrading my AMEX Premier Rewards Gold card to one of their Blue cash cards, or frankly any no AF card, but you are locked out of doing it. The lowest you can go is their green card with the $70 or $90 or whatever AF. I cancelled, even though I had that card for 13 years. Sucks, but it was completely useless for me at this point. They won't let you downgrade an AF card into a non-AF card class.http://thepointsguy.com/2016/01/maximizing-amex-premier-rewards-gold-card-2016/
Hmmn I might apply for this instead, I prefer the lower min spend $2k vs $5k however annual fee is $195 vs $95 but waived the first year.
If I plan on redeeming for flights I wonder if 50k MR or 35k SPG is more valuable? We usually fly economy and are not interested in Plat personal or business cards.
Hmmn now I'm back to square one, perhaps I'll apply for both? I need to find out if I can change Amex SPG to EP or downgrade to a no AF card.
