Can I do this? Will AMEX take the miles away?

Ok, simple question here ..... please help.

I opened up 2 AMEX gold cards. One biz one regular both at 75K points.
Also opened one up (Gold personal) for Mom.

I would like to use one 75K reward to transfer to my BA account and then take the other 2 (my AMEX biz and mother's Amex personal) and transfer points into my ONE CO miles account.

Will CO not allow points transferred from different person's card into my account? Will AMEX have a problem with this?

thanks.

I did transfer my wife's AMEX MR points to my own CO miles account without any problem.

Perhaps you have had trouble remembering where you posted exactly the same question previously:

If you read post #26 of the same thread I have replied with a free method which is certain to eliminate any basis for American Express to object, but for these small quantities they wouldn't care.
