The tip-off to my trigger was when she asked:

"Why do you have so many AUs?" :P

Heh, heh, just read this post from back in 2008. ;)

http://creditboards....howtopic=363795

After being told time and time again I could not convert, finally got it done today.
Went from the WorldPoints Visa to Amex.
Maybe Card Services at 800-421-2110 is more adept. :grin:

P.S. My backup JUST IN CASE. :swoon:

Even sadder to see a few cards listed all in the same way.

BobWang,

Do you have any savings in the Amex bank by any chance? I wonder if that would help preclude this nonsense.

OTOH, we might not enjoy this entertaining little adventure.

Amex FRs are really one of the bigger drawbacks one has to put up with. Amex, don't leave home without a backup card.

Back in 2009, I transferred $250k there, just to see if it worked.
It did, and I transferred the whole $250k out again a week later, after the 6-day hold was released. :D

I don't think AmEx likes being teased like that. :P

Our hearts go out the victims and families affected by this devastating natural disaster.

One way to help is to redeem Membership Rewards points to support humanitarian relief efforts for the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami. For every 1,000 points, $10 will be donated to the organization of your choice.

There is no limit to the number of Membership Rewards points you can donate, provided you have the available point balance in your Membership Rewards account. Cardmembers can also charge a donation to their American Express Card. There will be no cost to the charity for the transaction.

To make a donation using Membership Rewards point, or to charge a donation on your American Express Card, please click here

Doesn't it take them at least two weeks to receive the 4506T forms in the mail?

I'm quite sure that AmEx receives the tax returns electronically from the IRS.
The biggest delay is probably the IRS processing the request.

Cashing in all your points? They certainly will have you up and running soon with your customer history. Thank you for the information about the electronic transfer from the IRS. When we went through the mortgage process, the bank received our 4506T's through snail mail; so I never realized they could do it electronically.

Oops, AmEx called to tell me I forgot to put down NAME and address on line 3.
I am only given TWO chances to get the 4506-T correct.
If I mess up this time, all my cards will be cancelled.

I may just cancel all of them any way. :angry:

I'm pretty sure everything will be just fine with your accounts once they finish, but from what I've read, this was a very smart move! :D

How high up the chain have you worked? If I gave them that kind of business and they suspended my cards for 4 days (really at all, but especially for days on end), I'd be working my way up the chain until I got some answers.

I understand that you're not using them much at the moment, but that's not really the point.

I'm not going to escalate this.
If they cancel my cards because I can't fill out a 4506-T correctly, so be it.
I can't trust my AmExes any more. :(
