Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Oh yeh?
I just closed my Sapphire in middle of my billing cycle to get them to approve #3 of my 3BM, I did transfer the points to my Ink, but the points earned from the last cycle hadn't post then.

On my last statement it says "total points currently unavailable for redemption.... 2742.

Is there anything I can do?   

I wouldn't make myself crazy for 2700 points, but if it could get done easily, why not.
I try my best :-\

No warning. IIRC it was about 50k points.
There weren't any points that hadn't posted AFAIK because I haven't been using the card lately.
You think they'll reopen the account, move the points, and then close it?
I hope this doesn't affect my IY"H AOR in a couple of weeks!!

although I finished the spending on my Citi AA, I was busy and didn't call to close the account until day 38.

Dear etech0,

Thank you for contacting Chase about the rewards on your
closed Sapphire Preferred card.

Please be informed that as per your rewards program any
unredeemed rewards gets forfeited due to the closure of
the account. Hence, your unredeemed reward points have
been forfeited and are no longer available for redemption
or transfer. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience
this may cause you.
Help!!

Help!!
I'm guessing this might be more of an over the phone kind of thing. I've found that reps have an easier time saying no to a computer screen than to a person.

Maybe try calling and say that you never asked to close the account, you only wanted to downgrade and there was a miss-communication.

But that's not true. I will try just calling them. Which number would I call?
