    I usually just log into my account and do a search for "refer a friend."

    I had referred three people and only got the bonus for two with the same time frame but the third took over 2 months, 3 calls and a couple of emails. Diligence is key because they may not always process. Fortunately I referred my mom, dad and wife so I knew for sure they were approved.

    I had referred 2 people. Both people received the card. I only got one refer credit to my account. I tweeted to @AskAmex. Courtney got back to me and said I had to wait 8 weeks. So looks like I will be contacting them end of October to follow up. Hope this helps.

    Yea, "my husband" referred me (card in his name, but I do all the finances, so...), and I was approved and have since gotten all of my sign-up points by meeting the spend requirements. He hasn't gotten the bonus points yet, so I emailed Amex through his account - they said it can take 8 - 12 weeks to post in their reply.

    For the SPG, I applied during the 30k points period just this summer. I referred two people since. I've gotten the 5k referral points in 6 days, or 4 business days.

    For the PRG that I've had since last summer however, things are different. Referral points stopped posting after February. I recently contacted Twitter team with a list of approved applicants and they looked into it and credited me manually. I've got 2 more in the pipeline and I'll ask for them to look into again after 12 weeks.

    Hmm Hmm "Refer a friend" is no more? www.americanexpress.com/refer no longer works. Searching for "refer a friend" gives no results either. Anybody else see this and/or find an alternative?

    Well, I referred 7 friends and family members who all applied and got approved using my referral link and it has been 3 months and I have called Amex 4 times, provided all names and addresses of approved applicants, sent secure messages and my 35k SPG points are still not showing. Ill keep at it, ill not let it go.

    That is very unfortunate. I had referred two family members during the 30K promotion period and the points posted within few days of them getting approved. I guess the SPG system is not very consistent.
