A couple of years ago I signed up for a gold card and jumped through the hoops just to get the bonus points. When it came time for me to be awarded the points I had to fight for them. In the end Amex gave me the points and said they were doing it as "a courtesty." I did everything necessary to qualify for the points to the letter and they made it sound like they were doing me a favor by grudgingly holding up their end of the bargain.
You should follow up on the emails and call. If they can't come up with a legitimate reason for not awarding the points, they need to give them to you. If they don't, file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
