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"
Cancel and rebook? They give 24hrs to cancel?
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Of course. I am talking about when it would be too late for that.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

New BP benefits coming soon http://www.doctorofcredit.com/new-benefits-coming-business-platinum-march-30-5x-airfare/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
I wish they would drop the selecting an airline for 50% back and that they would let the $200 incidentals credit be used for any travel. That would make this card way more competitive with the CSR.

What? Drop the 50% or just the selecting an airline? I value the 50% return, more than a CP

Lol. Sorry for not being clear. Selecting an airline. So that you can use it with any airline. Also remove the non US airline restriction.

Terms and Conditions

¹You will get one point for each dollar charged for an eligible purchase on your Business Platinum Card® from American Express. You will get 4 additional points (for a total of 5 points) for each dollar spent on eligible travel purchases. Eligible travel purchases include scheduled flights, prepaid hotel purchases (including The Hotel Collection), travel packages (flight + hotel packages), minus returns and other credits. Eligible hotel reservations must be made on or after 3/30/2017 for additional points. Eligible travel purchases do NOT include FINE HOTELS & RESORTS bookings, car or cruise purchases, hotel group reservations or events, ticketing service, cancellation or other fees, interest charges, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. To be eligible for the 5x Membership Rewards points, you must both reserve and charge the travel purchase with the same eligible Business Platinum Card®. To modify a reservation you must cancel and rebook your reservation. You can cancel and rebook your reservation on amextravel.com or by calling a representative of amextravel.com at 1-800-297-2977. Cancellations are subject to hotel cancellation penalty policies. If hotel reservations are made or modified directly with the hotel provider, the reservation will not be eligible for this 5X Membership Rewards point benefit. Extra points for air, prepaid hotel, and travel packages will be credited to the Membership Rewards account 10-12 weeks after final payment is made. Bonuses you may receive with your Card on other purchase categories or in connection with promotions or offers from American Express may not be combined with this benefit. Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell. A purchase will not qualify for additional points if the merchant's code is not eligible. The benefits associated with the Additional Card(s) you choose may be different than the benefits associated with your basic Card.

"Plus you'll continue to get 50% points back after you book all or part of an eligible flight using Pay With Points"
What does "part" mean?

Has anyone ever used the intl companion ticket perk?  Wondering if you can use it coupled with the 50% rebate.
