just another dp that they gave me 10k to keep the card for another year. They gave me 10k last year too, so they're not unwilling to do repeat business.

my wife got an actual targeted invitation, 9 digit. But it has this language.

Prestige - no offer

moderate spend ($200 ish per month), I like it for travel insurance on award flights. The priority pass also handy. But not using enough to justify... Will close next month.

I was wondering if you did get an upgrade... and if you have any thoughts or suggestions on the hotel. My wife and I are both mere golds (and maybe missing the old diamond status a bit). Thanks!

My af hasn't posted yet, but will post before 8/1. Complained anyway, they gave me $50 good will. I guess I'll need to call back in a month. I'd much rather have 7k or 10k.
