    I got my SPG Amex in January and was thinking, hey why not change the credit card used for my stays in December to the SPG Amex since the other card had a vastly inferior rewards set up. However, when I spoke with someone at SPG I was told I wouldn't get the points for this. I couldn't tell if that's the extra point or all points. Obviously, I don't want to raise any flags with account integrity, but since Amex gets their percentage, I don't see why I shouldn't get my points.

    Your SPG Amex wasn't valid in December and the other CC statement will have closed by now anyway, much less the hotel's books. Nowhere near possible or even reasonable. Without the card in December you didn't "lose" any points because you weren't eligible to earn them.

    Hotels do have the ability to reverse and re-charge. That's what this would be, presumably. I would get a credit on my Visa/MC and a charge on my Amex.

    You could ask each of the hotel's accounting department to process the refund and recharge, but most likely you would be told to pound sand.
