If I paid for a $400 2022 hotel booking at the end of 2021
Full charge posted 2021 and received $200 credit then- would amex travel refund and recharge half to make me receive the 2022 amex credit as well?

No

I had $400 credit to use so a bunch of free and cheap options.
Where did you find this? I couldn’t find any.

Check out this link to find eligible hotels

Found a page that makes it easier to search - https://www.americanexpress.com/en-us/travel/discover/destinations
Further - if you only want 1 night, filter to Fine Hotels & Resorts as only that's eligible.

From what I remember - I believe Asbury Ocean Club and a place in Philly (Ritz?) that were free after $400 credit. I was willing to pay more so I don't remember if there was anything else.

Helping 2 people with their AMEX Platinum cards.

1 persons "benefits" tab shows where they're holding with airline fee credit and hotel credit
the other person gets taken to the "rewards" tab when they hit benefits and then they can't see where they're holding with the hotel credit - only airline

Any ideas as to why this happens?

No one else has this issue?

Chat to register an airline or Dell and it should correct itself.
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.

I've seen people mentioning having $400 in hotel credit.
Do they allow one to split payment for a booking between 2 platinum cards?

No. I posted about $400 credit, and was referring to a combo of hotel and travel credit for $200 each.
