Approved for 2 Amex Charge Cards -- Need to close 1 - Advice/ questions

Hello Everyone 

 

 

A few days ago I decided to apply for an amex charge card, my dream card was the platnum but I had originally decided to app for the zync because I did not think i would be able to get anything else of my limited credit history(less than 1 year ) but I found that the zync had been discontinued so I decided to give green a shot and to my shock i was instantly approved , but this morning i decided to just go for platnum since that was what I originally wanted and again I was instantly approved 

 

So now my question is what is the best way to go about cancelling the green card and keeping the platnum, should I do it now or wait ?? I obviously have no need for 2 amex charge cards especially when one of them has a $450 fee .  and will this affect my credit score or my relationship with AMEX ??? 

 

 

Thanks everyone .

Just call new accounts and tell them you don't want the green, they'll be more than happy to bill you the $450 for the plat.
