Last year we saw American Express offer generous retention bonuses for those that call in to cancel a card. We are again seeing those offers, mostly on annual fee cards (but also on non annual fee cards). Some of the offers are things like the annual fee being refunded on the Platinum cards (up to $595) or 50,000 Membership Rewards on those points. It’s always worth trying to get these retention bonuses, but this is especially true at the moment. You can read our complete guide to retention bonuses by clicking here.
