Rumor is that Fidelity Payments does not want to this to happen so they are basically forcing amex to close all accounts
All accounts belonging to whom?

Points disappear from online but are not forfeited. You need to call in if the account is closed.

This thread brings up this questions. If given notice, where would you move all your Amex points to - assuming no transfer bonuses currently?

What happens to the points? Do you have time to take them out?

This was an SPG/Marriott card. The points automatically get applied to the Marriott account at the end of the month. They're still there.

What does this mean? Does this person have to pay or not?

Was this a balance from swiping? Does it show settled without the card holder paying off the balance? Were the accounts closed?

Wondering if something was settled behind the scenes.
