Inquiry will (TU & EQ). Won't help if he has a ton of them.
Amex often times won't pull at all if you have a card open.

Did you get an email with the end date of your 50% bonus?
+1 this email will make all the difference.

FWIW, I was also told by a chat rep I had until May 2018 on one of my BPs, even though I knew it was expired.

Called and a rep told me on the phone the true story: expired.

But in your case, (i) I'd keep better records, (ii) still pursue the avenues I recommended.
I have a similar story I called in and they confirmed I'm grandfathered in till may (although it really should be expiring any day) and I had the csr send me an email confirming this I hope its good enough to fight and get the 50% back

Now that it's taking much longer for the 50% rebate, what happens if I need to legitimately cancel a booking within 24 hours, before the rebate posts? I end up essentially redeeming the MR for 1 cent each?
I might have to also cancel within 24 hours, is this generally the case, you donít get 50% rebate and end up with 1cpp?

Are Amex insider fares triggering the 50/35% rebate?

But is this the case that 50% back won't kick in?

Can I book DL/AA basic economy via Amex travel? Not seeing it online. Do I need to PUTPAC?
