I know. It sounded like he was familiar with these forums though. Not like just saying, oh I know that.

Wow.  I can't believe I'm reading this.  You gave an AMEX employee this specific thread and are then attempting to justify it.

I told him that reports were saying that since April 11, the 50% rebate weren't posting as fast. So he asked me where I saw that. I sent him here, among other places.  He was like, "oh, I know DansDeals". He said he spoke to his supervisor and he said average turnaround is still 3 business days. But, then again, he doesn't work in that department.
WTF is wrong with you? I'm afraid to even joke because you might run and tell a rep! Sure, this is a public forum, but still this has to win the DUMB ASS MOVE OF DDF HISTORY award!

Not to keep piling on, but for anyone reading, the #1 rule of travel hacking is never to call the airline, hotel, card company, etc when there's a deal. In almost every case (especially with a good deal such as this), there's just no practical reason to do so.

Thank you for that wonderful revelation.

Not to keep piling on, but for anyone reading, the #1 rule of travel hacking is to never post anything you want kept alive publicly, and rule #2 is to never to call the airline, hotel, card company, etc when there's a deal.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Rule # 2: If you do contact them, dont admit it in Public or you will get flamed

Lol. TBH, while I agree that it was in bad judgement, in this case, I fail to see how this is damaging, A. because there's nothing in this thread that's news to anyone, B. Because they already did delay the posting of the points...
