So will I get 50% on the whole thing if half is J?
I don't know the answer. If you don't get the whole thing automatically (which has a decent probability of working) you can call for manual adjustment for 50% of the J portion. May have to HUCA but you should get it. FWIW I would definitely try it. Or just book the whole thing in J.

I got my card and noticed in the card benefits that the first year is WAIVED and is $450 after that.  Does that make sense?  I was under the impression that the 100k offer had the fee the first year as well.

Any ideas?

Very interesting, chat with them and ask what sign up bonus is attached to your account. What link did you use?

I used the link on here.  I have over 100k in points under pending (hit the threshold) so I think I'm good...
