Yes
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Got this a month ago for my Plat card that was upgraded in December from PRG. I was just charged my AF on the plat card of $195 :).

No clue why.

No clue why.




When you upgrade, the prorated Plat AF is usually charged on the the statement after 45 days.

1) Were you charged prorated of 450 after 45 days (Jan or Feb) of upgrade?
2) Assuming "just charged" meaning in March, is your anniversary month in March?
3) What is your average annual spend on that account?

I just did an upgrade in Jan, but given the recent changes, I decided to revert to PRG before the 45 days was up. My anniversary month is August, wonder if I should have waited now. Wondering if they are making this exception due to the recent changes to entice you to keep the card and try it longer instead of making a decision like mine.

Oy vey. To get the credit w/o actually buying a ticket. Sorry if I used the wrong term.
Book a REFUNDABLE ticket on JetBlue. Book extra legroom seats. Wait for the flight & Amex $200 credit to post. Then go ahead and cancel your flight. You are left with a $200 credit on your account.

Thanks for replying. You're talking about the $200 credit. I was asking about the 50% MR benefit.

Not sure if this is against forum rules.
If anyone has Turkish as their airline I'm looking to book a ~$800 at 75% OBO
 Or united ~$1600 at 75% OBO
First of all of it is against the rules. Second of all, unless that TK flight is in J, it can't be booked with the 50% rebate.

Are most First/business class tickets equal to the economy pricing after the 50% refund or a bit cheaper?
 Also by the chase hybrid points are they needed to be used by business/first to get the 50% rebate like by the amex Plat.?

I have found in my little experience, that several of the domestic bis/first are the same as a full price economy after the 50% return. I may be misunderstanding you, but chase points are a flat 1.5 cents each regardless of what class or airline. There is no 50% back

Even while using the saffire reserve? I thought that cuts you 50% off the total with a flight booked through chase?

No, it only makes your points worth 50% more. So a 1 cent point is now worth 1.5 cents. Amex makes them worth 100% more, so a 1 cent point becomes 2.
