point is what do you do if you dont see the points in account or pending just wait it out or call up?

You wait patiently like hundreds of other people.

Just chatted with Amex to ask them to accelerate points for regular spend, and she said "I can only accelerate the points from spend but not the welcome bonus." I told her to proceed, and she came back and said that all my pending points, welcome bonus included, were accelerated.

That's what happens anytime you accelerate points. I'm surprised the CSR don't know that yet

Meaning that they can't accelerate some of them? That it's either all or none?

They could accelerate some of spend points but anytime there's a bonus attached to it it'll come along.

When they accelerate spend the bonus will always come along. They tell you that they can't accelerate bonus so you have to ask them just to accelerate spend.
I even had once that I reinstated my forfeited points myself online and bingo, bonus points became available!

I recently chatted to them to expedite signup points. They said no, they could only do spend points. Spend points were expedited and bonus points did not come along.

I think we are going off topic, this thread is for the fact that there's no sign of signup bonus at all
