your miles with continental are 100% safe. when the merge completes they'll become united miles.

i actually have a gold card so i was a bit surprised when he told me that. are you sure it makes a difference? maybe he didnt realize?

Maybe he didn't.

i was going to transfer to continental as i already have a onepass account, but was a bit worried about the merge with united that it might effect the miles. does that not bother you?

Nothing to worry about it that regard.

My bro-in-law got approved for the Amex Plat, spent $1000 and paid it plus the $450 annual fee.  He then got FR'ed and shut down (he got his 50K MR points so he's ok with that).  But they are refusing to refund his $450, saying since they cancelled his a/c they aren't required to. 

Any advice?

Thanx.

Keep calling until you find a reasonable rep.
Then email your attorney general.

Can anyone confirm this? Someone told me that amex is uptight abt there points and only let them through once your 1000 is PAID not spent. Is this true or hogwash? Also if its true would it help to pay it right away b4 the month is over?

That's true, but AMEX let's you borrow points (up to 60K I believe) so you can transfer now if you want.

Spoke with another rep who said it should get credited back on the next statement.  Hope he knows what he's talking about.  I asked him to note the account.
