    Lucky, if I were to sign up for the amex platinum card now, is there any way I could squeak out 2 airlines credits, 1 this year and 1 in 2016, before canceling and getting hit with the annual fee next year? I'm wondering if I could do the spend within the first few days of the year next year and then cancel, or this year if I possibly didn't activate the card after I get it until February? I'm interested in getting it now for the 100,000 point signup bonus that is out there.

    @ nikdro -- If you get the card now you can absolutely do a fee credit now and then again the first week of January of next year. Shouldn't be an issue.
