I probably already know the answer, but is there any way to select El Al as the designated airline for the yearly credit and 35% Y rebate for the Business Platinum?
no

What is the general consensus regarding the 5X airfare and 5X prepaid hotels from Amex Travel?  I can usually find lower prices from European OTAs (sometimes $10-20, sometimes $100+, typically German or French).  And putting aside the whole elite status issue when booking through an OTA, it doesn't look like they offer 15%-16% coupons like most of the big OTAs (for non-chains).  Is the 5X still that lucrative?  Do they ever have coupons or other sales for hotels that bring the net price more in line with other OTAs?

I've been doing pretty well with the CSR 3X on travel, but I'd like to start exploring other angles...

Just got an offer via email to get 5k MR when I add an AU to personal plat and spend $500 within 3 months. Available for up to 4 new AU's (20k MR). Seems that additional golds qualify as well.

AUs have to be Plat, or is additional Green AUs enough?

The fact that they list the plat benefits could imply otherwise.. guess we'll have to wait for reports..

Looks like Amex is taking a break from 150K Platinum mail offers, only 100k/10k offers sent out this time... PM me if you're interested in one.

AU's can be green as well . Also , the offer is not only going out on plat, i received on prg as well.

Looks like Amex is taking a break from 150K Platinum mail offers, only 100k/10k offers sent out this time.

Yep . Reg offers seem to be 100/10 & targeted offers 100/5 + 50/10
