I got the platinum card and after the 50000 points post, i will cancel. my question is, will i forfeit the points if i dont use them before its canceled? i also have an amex gold with membership rewards, so will i be able to retain the points from the platinum card on the gold membership rewards account? thanks

as long as you have another amex charge card open, you should be okay.

Otherwise it's 30 days.

Edit: That's for other people who don't have another Amex.

I tried to file a claim for purchase protection with the Amex Plat and they are asking for a police report.  Any advice?
Thanx

If you said it was stolen you'd need that. What did you claim?

My car was broken into :-(

On the main site, dan says no police report required...

Hmmm, I guess Dan is wrong sometimes too. If your car was broken into you should get a PR anyway, it's good for crime stats.

Ok thanx.  I didn't want to bother with it, but I guess no choice.

I'm definitely wrong sometimes, but this ain't one of them. 
Please reread what I wrote on the site before misquoting me Devora :)

Quote from: Dan
    * Lose something? It’s covered!!!

Almost no other card offers this! If you lose an item within 3 months of purchasing it, just let AMEX know about it within a month after the loss, fax them your receipt, and they will immediately issue a refund for the item! This protection is for items up to $10,000, and for up to $50,000 in claims per calender year. No police report or any other dirty work is required!

I think it's clear that I'm saying that a lost item claim doesn't require a police report.  Obviously other claim types will vary.

Sorry, didn't mean to misquote you.  I guess I assumed that you were talking about something that was stolen when you said no police report required - why would you file a police report for something lost?

Quick question. If I bought a money order at the post office, would that work to fullfill the spending requirement for the 50000 points? the charge only shows USPS so i don't think they would know its for a money order. thanks

yep. buy stamps and the such all the time. just figured i could pay the cc bill with the money order i just bought. simple and sweet i thought.

also, how is it as mentioned that i can get 4 years of lounge access if the amex is only good for 1 year. especially if i cancel quickly.

by the way, hope you are enjoyin your trip. i am very envious.

which post office do you use because all the ones i have been have big signs saying that you can not use a cc to pay for money orders.

Interesting, they're not supposed to let you pay by cc.
The AMEX Plat card expires in 4 years from when you get it.
