This is the MR 5x booking bonus, not points rebate.
i understand but to credit it right away seems out of ordinary. usually need to wait for statement to close etc

my ticket from yesterday wasnt actually ticketed
i got a pnr but no email or ticket numbers
i called la compganie and they said it was cancelled
apparently, the agent had it on hold and didnt ticket it so it cancelled
i was furious and called AMEX platinum travel and luckily the flights are still available at the original price, so rebooked

ends up being less than 60k MR after 5x on travel

My Amex (BP) rep was able to see the flight but wasn't able to ticket it. She told me to book it directly with La Compagnie and then they manually credited the 5x MR.
even before you flew?

AA 1
50k AA (+ $75)
51,500 BA +5.60

or 25k EY

(not showing on AS)

i booked by calling amex plat travel
they see the flight through their concierge which is a reg travel agent and has access to flights otherwise not available through the online portal 
$998. 99,800 MR. 35% back = 64,870 
$39 booking fee not waived

These 5k awards are always web special...They just have a few added restrictions on cancelations and changes, it's still a regular cabin ticket, not BE.
my point is that now, it doesnt show web special as an option
it just gives main cabin (and business/first) as an option without notifying the simpleton that it is a web special until he/she selects the flight
then there are two options. one is the original web special fare and one is main cabin
with the old search, the little box on top told you that before selecting the flight. now, it is not there. two columns. main and business

AA awards now showing main cabin at web special amounts. select the flight and you get a pop up showing you its web special, and if you want main cabin can be as high as 30k certain routes

Could be a code-share but most likely you just don't understand what you see.


very misleading because now when i clicked the 5k award, lax-san in jan - a pop up shows up saying its a web special and if you want main cabin, it could be as high as 30
