The charge could just be a temporary credit card hold/authorization for the full amount of the stay plus taxes. It may disappear after a little while, although the specific hotel/AMEX would know for sure. I have never had to prepay for a stay when booking via FHR.

Also, for me, past FHR free nights are simply not charged to your credit card upon checkout. The folio just shows 2 nights of room charges instead of 3 if you have 3rd night free. There are cases when the hotel misses the 3rd/4th night free promo, so definitely check before leaving the hotel.
