    hi,I have a amex delta plat, which is useless for me, the annual fee will be charged on march,
    looks like my options are either:
    1)try getting a good retention bonus [btw which Dep am I calling for that?]
    2)downgrading to amex blue cash
    3)converting to amex spg,i've heard I can get 10k points for doing that

    any other/better ideas ? thanks

    Upgrade to the Reserve card if there's a good offer for miles and MQMs?

    1) 800 567 1083 or 888 826 3471

    2) the conversion bonus offers are not as good as first time signup bonus offers. That is something you should consider.

    I would consider outright applying for one of the other AMEX cards signup bonus offers and allocating your credit line from delta plat to that card. Then you can downgrade to Blue Cash.

    Another option is simply downgrading to the Delta Options card if one wants to keep the existing line without an annual fee - have the AmEx for Delta (or AmEx) promotions. Only earns 1 mile for every $2, so mine stays in the wallet unless there is a promotion requiring the card ;)
