If you're spending in increments of $5k+ then the BP is a great option. You might want to get the new blue for business card for the first $50k of your spending but that's up to you if you want to split up your spending on multiple cards. Alternatively you could get a freedom unlimited and get the same 1.5 PPD without having to spend $5k in each transaction.

BP?

Whats my bonus on pay with points...., or something like that.
First the answer is 35%,  but when saying I thought I have 50%, rep says I'm right, as said in the notes.

True, but it's good to have proof of what you did so they can't make false claims.

You didn't have any liability coverage? Isn't that required from the rental co?

in most states the car rental company is required to provide a state minimum for liability insurance, so forward the claim to the rental company

I have pics of the bumper which was supposedly damaged, they replaced the entire bumper although no damage is evident, the paint scrape is tiny. Amex paid to fix my car which had a slight dent

So i forward this whole bill to Thrifty ?

Yes you will see available credit.
when I used it, it also made a pending transaction on my credit card. Is that normal and then it just falls off?
