Yes, I'll start to do that, as you and Global 321 suggested. Is it just as simple as booking a flight on AA, but I list my Alaska number instead of AA somewhere in the booking process? Thanks

Yeah, it would be much simpler to say, "Although you no longer have an AA account, please feel free to use the card as you always have."

Downgrading a Platinum Select card, Hard Pull ?

My annual fee just hit, and I'm going to cancel the card and get the AF refunded. But if they offer and if I downgrade to a free Citi card, do they run a new credit check like it were a brand new...
