Took 33 days for me, posted today.

Same here, 50% in one shot

What happens if you close the biz plat after booking? Do you get any refund? Assuming you have other MR cards.

Previously when I changed my airline choice (through chat), a rep told me it takes up to 24 hours for the airline choice to be changed. Can't say that's the definitive rule though since chat reps aren't always the most knowledgeable.

Do I have to wait at all after chatting to make changes? I see mixed opinions/data points over the last four pages of this thread.

Assuming the answer is yes is it any different if I got an email and the status updated in my account (both happened immediately)?

Airline changed while I was still chatting. Made a booking once I was done with chat.
I just found a new supply of forks!

I believe I'm grandfathered in the 50, does it show anywhere or I will just get the rebate?
I'm looking at a fare and Amex Travel is with $250 more the published fare, calling in will help?

Great question - in the same spot. My annual fee just hit and I am waiting for the rebate to hit. Not sure what do to do. I know they prorated rebate is available, but that makes the points worth less if I have to pay part of the fee to get to the rebate.

When day did you book? What day did the fee post?

Amex.com showed a difference of $315 but on the next page when entering the names it showed the correct amount

Call platinum travel when the website does show correctly

My grandfathered benefits are due to expire in May.
Will rebates I accrue on bookings made prior to that count towards the 500k cap?
Risk is opportunity
