Redeemed? Why would they need that? Why are you asking?

I'm sure they keep a database of redemptions though.

Well, they obviously know how many`points every account has. I don't understand the question.

Not sure of the question or to its use, however, this might give a little hint; I once wanted to transfer amex to virgin (45k), and a screen came up saying:"You have exceeded the amount of Partner inventory available" and " VIRGIN ATLANTIC
 *The Partner points requested for this item exceeds the daily limit of
-727379969 points. PLEASE ADJUST PARTNER POINTS to complete checkout.*"

What a random number, you think people are really transferring 727 million Virgin miles a day (even adjusted for the bonus).

Personally I don't think so, however, this error message I copy pasted of the amex site to send to the seller of amex to tell him that I cannot do anything with his points.
