What I noticed is, that having both the Plat consumer and Business card got me as follows:

I booked a  business class ticket using points. Amex first codes it as a purchase charge then credited my account as I used points.
So I received the 50% bonus rebate for having the Plat Business then I also received the 5x points on the initial charge that Amex charged me (besides of course the miles for a revenue ticket!).
Wow, is this what happens to everyone?  (never saw anything about that)

you got the 50% bonus even when the ticket was charged to the personnel card?

If you have the personal and business does it automatically give you the 50% rebate or do you have to book a certain way?
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

No, it appears as the full price and once booked it will appear as a credit back.

You also need to choose the BP as the card associated with the ticket at checkout. The airline for the credit also needs to have been chosen even to be credited for Business Class travel (per MR phone rep, but DROPR). They say that is why I wasn't credited here.

How long should it take to get the points back for flights?
You sure you have the right airline selected? I would call MR at this point.
it was for business class. I will call them.
I called and was credited. An earlier rep said it was because it was charged to my everyday (it wasn't) or because the everyday was the primary card on my MR account which confused the MR rep who at first said there was nothing to do about it. DROPR

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

TY!
Phone rep claims that if it is not associated with BP at checkout there is nothing they can do to credit it after. SHe even "went to check"
