Called to transfer all my points to CO and had her borrow 30k which would be covered by the 30k I was promised. I told her I would only borrow the 30k if I would for sure get them. She had no problem notating my account that if the 30k were not given to me then I would not have to pay back the 30k that I borrowed. After she did the transfer she said she opened a ticket to have the points credited and a couple days later my balance went from -29,432 to 432 :)

She did say that my original note was very strongly worded that if the points were not posted automatically then they would be credited manually...

Smart move. Well done!

I've heard that approach has worked a couple of times, i.e. people borrowing points on the promise of future bonuses. Seems to squeeze AMEX that much harder...

Didnt Continental transfers stop at end of september?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Yes, and he transferred those 30k (and whatever other amount) before October.

I went with my request to the executive offices. She called me back left me a voicemail  that I didn't get it because there is a 1K spend per card required. Somehow for some stupid reason I deleted that message. Called back to get it promised if I spend the $$ (figured I don't have any other cards I need to spend on right now )and now I'm getting denied on all fronts. I threatened to go to the AG office with the voicemail(which I claimed to still have) and they aren't budging.

Any ideas?

Try to get the voicemail restored by the carrier?

 -29,432 + 30,000 = 568

IF (big if) you can get the voicemail back, the Exec CSR would likely have left their direct extension. With that, get in touch with that CSR who promised you and you're golden.

It's possible but won't be easy. This is why I use Google Voice for voicemail :)

Nice! How many times did you have to call the Exec office before they gave you the points for the AU promo?

Was it for promo 5721?
