I have my annual fee due today and unsure if I have to hold the card looking at the prospects of air travel in the coming months. Did anyone have a luck in any new retention offer if not 200K points. Cheers

I just called to "cancel" and have been offered 120k points, no questions asked.
For the (algorithm) record, I haven't spent anything on the card for many many months. My annual is due in April and I haven't used my travel credit. Amazed that they would want to keep me :)

My experience of the Platinum AMEX charge card in the UK here: Double Amex MR points until 20 July 2020

Not many points offered, but have since had lots of decent spend offers which the spend = the full amount you'll receive back.

Are you finding that you're getting lots of points but no spend X get Y back offers that essentially amount to 'free' goods and services?
