If I buy a ticket on UA or CO for that matter but the flight is a codeshare with Air Canada for example, will the Amex Plat still afford me lounge access when not flying specifically on UA or CO for one of the flights?

What about getting the baggage fees credited under the $200 credit?

Thanks!

Small Claims court.

Worth the hassle for $450? (I've never done it, so I don't know how much (or little) of a hassle it is).

I got my 50k from amex after I "spent" 1k on the plat and before I "paid" them. Just my experience...

I didn't. YMMV perhaps?

yep, YMMV. once i got my bonus points really fast, but for this AMEX plat, points didnt post yet and i already paid my bill a while ago (not worried though, because i called and they said the 50k was on the way). my next closing date is jan. 24th and i believe thats when mine will arrive

Well, perhaps more of a hassle then BBB, the FTC, the Federal Reserve etc, but also much more likely (like 99.99%) that you'll get your money back. I suppose it depends how badly you want the $450 back.

For those that don't know, you can file online (for a $14 or so fee) with turbocourt.com or ncourts.com.

PS, I also have very little experience filling with SCC, but enough experience to know it works. Long ago I had a case with AT&T. I received a call from the "Office of the President" and they settled the whole thing without me having to go to court.

You can file for $14 without having to go to court?

The $14 fee is in addition to the court filing fee ($15 in NYC for claims under $1000, etc).

Still, so long as you don't actually appear you can raise the heat on a company.

Yup, you don't have to go down to court until the court date, and since they don't like being called to court very much, they sometimes settle it before the date and you never end up going down. Either way it's a good way to get companies to cooperate.

Will it be beneficial to sue a mom -and-pop from across the US in NY if I think I can prove they owe me $3,000?

You cant. For Small claims they have to have a place of biz in NYC (or NYS, I forget)

Thanks for your help.
