It looks like the winning way is to call direct to the MR dept people and ask for the extra 50k. The number is 800-297-3276 It took many many many calls to get a rep to transfer to MR and they are the one's who can do it. Points instantly posted! BTW it even works for the AMEX MR GOLD. I got mine last year when deal as well on the 50k deal! http://www.frugaltravelguy.com/ http://thepointsguy.com/#!/page/1 http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/amer...x-platinum-100k-mr-point-sign-up-bonus-7.html Keep calling until you get the points. Wife and I just got an extra 100k for 30 min calling!
