If your grocery is accommodating enough to let you carry a balance, maybe they can also clean up your mistake by refunding the Platinum and charging the PRG.
Will try that.
BTW It was my FILs balance and it was less than 30 days old. I paid his balance on Nov. 10 (and met my threshold on a business Platinum)
That's one of my favorite MS methods...
I try my best :-\

I had my mother apply for a sapphire and freedom as a 2bm,
And my mother didn't tell me that she had a freedom already

So?
Her freedom is currently open so she got a letter to call them being that she has the card open
I figured that means that she won't get the bonus points even if approved

I'm trying to add SEA in august but they keep telling me that it would be an addition 120k miles. Am I doing something wrong? I've been telling them to change my last leg from TLV-JFK to TLV-SEA with a SO in JFK but no luck.
They would be able to add on the leg but...they would need to issue a whole new ticket at the current availability. So I wouldn't get the discounted rate (140k) I booked originally. I would need an additional 165K  :( Make sense?

Always wondered if I buy a used car and have trouble within 90 days will Amex protection cover the car?
Think they will let me keep it?

amex protection is only for new or like new items

If you are referring to Platinum purchase protection, it excludes motorized vehicles.

Well I was excited about the 100$ gift card for 96... but wanted to get also the visa edge..so bought with it a 200. For some dumb reason I did some on my secondary's account but didn't realize I didn't register him for visa edge..

I did that with car insurance. I switched from Progressive to Geico (no, i didn't save 15%), and by mistake called Progressive and tried giving my Geico policy number.
