Also, similar scenario but what happens if I downgrade to the free BA card?
I downgraded recently to the free card and was told my earned vouchers were safe and could be used as normal (with the 2 years + 6 month extension). To be honest in your situation I would take this route - still having a card will at least allow you to interact with American Express if you need to...

Downgrading is very easy and quick. It took me about 5 minutes on the phone and the replacement card arrived a week later. I suggest you just do it now and you’ll get a few quid back on the fee too.
