If I add an AU to the Amex platinum business, will I get charged if I cancel the AU within 30 days? Or before statement closes? Tia

My wife cancelled her personal Platinum card on 7/8 and has no other MR card in her account. We called AMEX and she has 30 days to either transfer or redeem those MR, OR to open another MR card. She just applied for and was approved for the Blue Business Plus card. She completed the application while logged on to her AMEX account. However, after approval, the website asked if she wants to add that card to an existing account. She entered her same login info and it said that card can't be added to that account. So she opened a new login. Now she will have a 2nd MR account, which doesn't help. How can she get AMEX to combine the orphaned MR points from the cancelled Platinum card to combine with her new Business Plus card?

2 logins does not mean 2 MR accounts

You do not have 30 days to redeem, the moment the card is closed you lose your MR.

Even if it does post, it'll get clawed back.

From my experience with Amex, they have no clue what's going on. I was missing credits from 50% back, and was given extra GE credit. I was shorted a total of ~30K MR, and walked out with full reimbursement + 4k MR and $100. Stupid Amex.

Funny I was short as well and called to complain and eventually a supervisor called me back and told me they owed me more then I had calculated.

They are not normal. I realize close to 6 months later that they had rebate me, then clawed it back and rebate part and clawed that back etc. When I called they did a 3 day review and finally reimbursed what I was missing and after I berated them, they offered me a measly 4k as comp. Apparently in the process, they also found a $100 GE credit that "wasn't credited" (it was, but not to that card) and credited me again for that.

Even if the points are deducted and you get a credit on your card?
