how so?  From what I understand the Blue Cash is an excellent cashback card yes?  The Delta Gold skymiles isnt bad I suppose, but cash does appeal more to me.  Please let me know if I am missing something.

I maybe missing something.  I dunno.

Sorry for my ignorance still learning as much as i can!  I have to say the delta isnt bad as I've already accumulated 75,000 ff miles in the 3 months of having the act.

We are all still learning.  If you fly alot, you may want to keep that card.

I switched from Gold Skymiles to Blue, from Green to Gold, to Platinum, to Gold, to Premier Rewards Gold, and most recently, to Zync.

great, thanks for the response.  Did they change your limit or do anything with your rewards when you changed from the delta gold to blue cash?

Re: Amex card product change

So one can get an annual fee card like Amex Gold which is generally easier to get and then do a PC to like Blue Cash before the annual fee is due?

None of my limits ever changed, and my MR points carried over with each switch.

A lot of forum members have done this, and it's probably still possible. However, during the credit crunch, there was always speculation if this would somehow red flag an account.
