Beg, plead...and dont waste your time. Miniscule chance you get it reversed.

Could have tried transferring 7500 instead of 75000.

Always a chance. I did pggm and forgot to cancel my flight before 24 hrs. I called and explained the whole situation and eventually got refunded. Always a chance

amex should give a  monetary credit is possible. this transfer to delta transferred to a different company, amex cant have a real say to tell them to return it

+1, It's a matter of getting the right person at the right time.

How do you mistakenly transfer?

well, its more that i just totally screwed up. bit of a long story, but since you asked-
i wanted to book a flight on delta. i had MR points, but i had downgraded to the Blue card and didnt realize i coudlnt transfer to delta with that card. i only realized it just as i was ready to book the flight and transfer the miles. so- i asked a relative to book the flight for me with his delta points and told him I'd open the Biz Gold and then transfer my MR to Delta.

well, the trip came and went and i opened the biz gold and transferred the points to my Delta thinking i would transfer them to the relative. only then did i realized the transfer fee is WAY higher than i realized.

i think in retrospect i should have either avoided this from the beginning or added the relative as an authorized user on my account and then transferred the points to their delta account.

I'm going to call and beg Amex to do something for me, but im not hopeful at all.
