Removing & Re-Adding AUs at a later time

Hi

I was wondering about removing and then re-adding authorized users at a later time and date? I had my AU cards for merely lounge benefits for them but since no one's traveling this year, I figured I'd save myself the extra hundred something dollars. I was wondering if there are any negatives to removing them now, and not getting hit w/ the 185 and say ... adding them in 6 months? 9 months? Even next year ...

thanks!

Someone on reddit mentioned downgrading to free gold - then back up to plat when i'm ready to pay the fee again. Is there a benefit to doing that?

yes.. your AU won’t be hit with a new account on their credit file, since amex doesn’t do backdating.

Is it possible for ​​​​​AU cards to be converted to cards in their own name? How is this done?

No, the supplementary cardholder needs to apply for a separate account.

I think an exception can be made for a married spouse of a primary if they die if I remember correctly
