Don't close the card.
What you should do is charge teeny tiny things on it once every other month or so. I'm talking things like a Big Gulp, a Snickers bar, maybe a bag of tees at the golf club. Do that for six months, call back in all sweet and nice, and ask for a CLI.
They'll more than likely get the hint.

AMEX uses Experian so do not know how that pans out. Will SD the card until it's PIF.......never to use it except for very small purchases.
