I just got the AMEX Membership Rewards card and was trying to register it for the Fidelity bonus point promotion that they still are running. I received an email back saying my account wasn't eligible. When I called they said I had already applied for the Delta promotion and that I hadn't complied with their terms which require keeping the funds in for 6 months. I told them that had nothing to do with the new promotion and that I should be allowed to register for the new one seeing that they do not know if I will keep the funds in there or not. One has nothing to do with the other. The rep was quite snippy and said he was only conveying the information the other department he had to check with during the conversation had passed to him. He said I had not complied and that the points would be pulled back out of my Delta SM account. Can they do this, is there a way to head it off and thirdly has anyone actually had this happen yet. Regardless of the Delta situation they have no reason to exclude someone from a legitimate offer and that ticks me off. I would keep the funds in at this point with 100,000 points on the line but they won't let me in. To escalate or not, that my friend is the question.
