They can reopen it, move the line, and reclose it.
He tried (albeit only once) and told me he couldn't. Would HUCA work or it's something that has to happen on that phone call?

Hate to post in this thread, but...
Just closed SW and only after CSR closed it did I remember to ask to transfer to CL. Too late :(
Luckily, I had lowered it at some point to just 2500, but whoops nonetheless.

(At least I made sure not to close it till I got my 6K.)
If this is your only post in this thread then you are doing good.
I just found a new supply of forks!

HUCA.
Perhaps try reallocation dept.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks. They reopened the account (confirmed no pull) but said it'll take a day or two for the ability to shift the CL to come back in the system. Said they normally don't shift CL below $5K, but that I can still call back in 2 days to try.

Bought 5k in visa gc from Gcmall.
They charged me $15 shipping fee in addition to the regular fee.
I live right near a CVS that is loaded with one vanilla cards so that was a waste...

NOW!?! It's too late I already funded the newly opened account this morning with $500.
Update: Just called they said I can't set it to zero since I am not even enrolled and I can't make any CA...... Whatever I'll just have to hold my breath till it posts.

If the charge hasn't posted yet, it might work.

Do you know how AMEX categorizes such charges?

Opened a new SPG bus as part of AOR, mistake was that I had confused the opening and closing date of my previous SPG bus, (meaning I reopened before 1-year of closing).

Do I have any shot of getting the bonus without a fight?
