What happens to your corporate AMEX reward points if you leave the firm? If you lose them, if I book travel before I leave will that work?

AmEx might tell you you can use them within a certain period after the card is closed, but there will be a stiff point penalty. Transfer or redeem before you leave the firm.

Sign up for Amex blue everyday (0$ annual) or another credit card. Transfer prior to leaving

You may be able to transfer them to a personal Amex account. If not, then cash them out. May not be as profitable but it's better than nothing

D1 if I book a flight / hotel on AMEX points prior to leaving, then I'm fine correct?

Not sure, but probably. I transferred mine to Delta.

The most optimal point transfer would be to Delta miles but you do you man

Lol ey1 that is incredibly false. Foreign carriers provide much better options for transfers. As to your question OP, if you book and your points have been debited from your account, you are fine.

Transfet

Sorry @d2 I made the assumption that op was just gonna do domestic travel

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.

I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?
