I would just spend an extra 400... I mean come on AMEX is giving you 100k points, you can let them earn some swipe fees and show them you're just not using them for the sign up bonus.

 

also it's not worth losing 100k points to spend 400$ on another card.


I spent the $400 on the AMEX, but it never posted.

I know, what I'm saying is spend another 400$ make sure you get the bonus.

Sounds like a good plan

A similar PayPal situation happened with one of my AMEX cards with a $200 transaction.  It took 2.5 weeks for it to eventually show up.  Luckily, it wasn't a bonus-dependent transaction.  Oddly enough, the transaction date reflected as of when the purchase was made.

 

But as Ryanbush pointed out, in the event something quirky does happen, I would heed his advice to ensure you don't miss out on the bonus.

I just want a paypal charge to post. So I can get my 100k bonus and quit spending money at 1pt/$1.
