Call AMEX, if you have the card, and ask them. Sometimes as a courtesy they will give you a couple thousand.

Then try SPG if denied.

Yes and YMMV. I think I remember hearing someone getting 8k. They also loan out points which you pay back overtime.

You'll need to call for a refund.
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.

Transfer your SPG to marriot points,and than transfer your marriot points to whomever.

Do you mean transfer them back to anyone's SPG account? I don't see where you can transfer Marriott points to another account for free when not booking a reservations
