The charges all posted and were paid. The 4X bonus points haven't posted and are not pending

I'm confused.

Did you make a regular revenue booking or a points booking?

If the latter, and the 1x posted and the 4x didn't, you have answered the question.

I was responding to Dans question: "Anyone get the 5x credit for using their AMEX business plat for a redemption since 3/30?"

No, I have not got any "5X" bonus points points since 3/30. I made a purchase through amex travel for airline tickets and paid for them using pay with points. I have chatted and the 4X bonus was supposed to post 5-7 days after the charge for "amextravel" posts. Although the purchase is paid for by points it counts as a payment, and not a refund, therefore the amextravel purchase is eligible for the 4X bonus points. My statement has closed and it's been almost 2 weeks, and the bonus points are neither pending or posted. What is unclear?

You're not understanding what AJK is saying. He's saying that you answered the question. No matter what the rep told you, since you used the pay with points option, you did not receive the 4x bonus points for the airfare booked with Amex Travel.

Anyone get the 4x since 3/30 with their consumer Platinum card+Business 50% rebate?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

How can one get both 5x and 50% rebate ? Isn't the rebate only for paid by points and 5x for revenue ?

Not a discussion for a public forum, IMO.

Suffice it to say, delaying the posting helps curb the risk.
Just curious, are we not allowed to mention on these threads forms of abuse which are pure and intentional theft, and which spoil a fantastic legitimate benefit for everybody else? Dan, is that indeed the policy on these matters? Shouldn't we be condemning those who ruin it for regular users who are enjoying these benefits in a legitimate way?

no one is condoning it. But discussing it in public will only bring more abusers and make it worse for everyone even the so called "good guys"

Unfortunately you're probably right. I'm just thinking that if these abuses would be publicized early on, Amex etc. could respond in perhaps a more moderate way that would preempt the fraudsters while retaining the benefits as intended. The hush hush policy just allows it to go on behind the scenes, and then once flagged it triggers a knee-jerk reaction that severely harms everyone, as is the case here.

How do you imagine a more moderate reaction from Amex would be?

Ain't nobody gonna let you in on their secrets. You get an A+ for the attempt to. Play the straightnhonest guy to try to get in. That may have worked back in the infant ups method days but no one will share ups/bp method
