Can I cancel Amex Plat, but keep Corporate Green, and keep my MR?

I have
  • Amex Personal Platinum (got 60k MR when opened a year ago. Just been charged $550 AF)
  • Amex Corporate Green (for which I pay $90/yr, charged to my Plat, to enable earning of MR at 1 point/$)
Can I do the following?
  1. Cancel the Plat and have the AF waived (its charged on my new statement, payment due date in 3 weeks) - YES
  2. Keep my 60k bonus MR (total MR balance now 95k) - YES
  3. Keep earning MR on my corporate green (and have the $90 fee related to that perk charged to the green from now on) - YES
Edit - added answers after speaking with Amex.
However, in the end I accepted a $500 credit retention offer to keep my Plat open.

Are your personal and corporate cards linked to the same Membership Rewards account?

I don't see why not, but I'm not sure if the MR fee will be the same $90 if you no longer have a Platinum card attached to it.

I'm not 100% certain, but if I recall correctly I dont think it matters. Amex mentioned the $90 MR fee to me years ago (I didn't enroll at the time) before I got a Plat card.

If they are linked to the same MR account that should not be a problem at all.

I spoke to Amex. Updated my original post (also quoted above).
