Amex BCE to BCP!

I finally got my Amex BCE upgraded to BCP! I had the offer about 3 years ago but at the time, it didn't fit into my spend. Last year, I'd calculated it'd be worth it for me but the offer had been long gone. I had been told by CSR that I should use the card more in order to get offers. I did this and only got the offer that was a 1:1 upgrade with no bonus. I would not accept that!


One day a few months back, the offer for $150 cash back after $1000 spend (AF waived for one year) had appeared on the website (not on mobile or anywhere else). I was at work so I didn't proceed right away. Once again, the offer was gone by the end of the night. Others here reported similar situations of offers only appearing one time. I called CSR and told them I got as far as the apply page but that the offer went missing. They said they'd escalate and it could take a couple of months. 

Anywho, I finally got the offer via email and this time went through with the upgrade. Needless to say, I'm quite happy I got this offer. Especially with the AF waived because money is a little tight and I can hit the spend pretty easily with an upcoming vacation I'm planning.

Your post prompted me to check my account and they're offering me an upgrade too... Tempting with the waived AF but I just downgraded my BCP in September so I'm surprised to have an offer so soon?
