And I was suprised I was able to order one (figured it would have been sold out or the site would have stayed messed up as it was for an hour). So even if I had seen it I probably would have picked one up yesterday anyway to use the 3x RZ coupon and make sure I had it in hand for my son's birthday next week.
Anyway, I just contacted them so we'll see what they say, if they can even understand what I'm trying to ask
. Even if, for some reason, I lose out on the $50, I saved $60 from the sale so it was a slightly better deal. Only problem is I used $95 in RZ certs on the purchase yesterday which I know will go back on my account but I don't have any more big purchases to make there any time soon.
If it makes you feel any better, I contacted AMEX on Twitter and ended up explaining it in the secure message center my issue: bought egift, told it wouldn't count by AMEX, returned it and bought physical one, but credit is on egift. I was told that if the credit is returned, to contact that particular CSR by email and she can force the credit back. YMMV, naturally, but there's hope...
