    It’s unfortunate because you can’t trade(top off) friends accounts.
    It was an open secret. Kind of remind me of the classic “Office Space” just fix the glitch scene.

    Less about preserving value of points than avoiding fraud. Too easy for someone to get access to your account and empty it.

    Have you personally ever transferred amex to someone else who is not your spouse?
    Please tell me you have followed the rules completely 100%

    I agree their outrage is unwarranted, but it’s a little refreshing to see some criticism of Amex from the usual suspects. gee, I wonder if losing their Amex links gave them license to express themselves a little more freely…

    Next time I need 10K points and I have to buy them at some outrageous rate, I’ll try and be so zen.

    People were having luck today by having a phone rep do the transfers manually.

    I apologize for missing that part. Nobody is perfect.

    Please enlighten: If it’s not enough just being a spouse for the transfer of points to be permissible, would a spouse as an authorized user on the account be enough? Thanks!
