Airline affinity credit card renewal

I'm coming up on one year on the Chase / Continental platinum Visa. I thought it would interesting to start a thread about renewal strategies.

I've usually been able to get a credit card company to reduce or eliminate an annual fee in the 2nd year if I threaten to cancel. There have been some exceptions, but there's usually some room to negociate with the customer service folks. I've never tried with one of these cards however.

Has anyone had any success asking for a reduction or removal of the annual fee for the 2nd year? Has anyone had any success asking for the same enrollment bonus you got when you paid the first annual fee? Has anyone had any success cancelling the card and applying for a new one?
