I had points that posted with this description. Anyone know what it means? I think it might be for a FHR stay I booked; I didn't have any other hotel stays with amextravel. 5 X TLS    572
Bump does anyone know what 5 X TLS is? I'm curious to know if my FHR purchase on a BP platinum is giving out 5x points.

    I got a 50k Plat personal w/$5K spend invite in the mail. Don't see anything about " never had before " in the TCs. Currently holding a Plat Biz. 

I must of had at least one personal in the past.
   Is Amex really doing this now?

What makes you think the rep knows about no language offers?

On the hunt for a 100/10 +50/15 (150k biz plat / 150k business platinum) mailer as a gift. Would be my first of the suite so doesn't have to have "no 24 month" language. PM me if you know anyone feeling charitable  8)

He told me my 2 closing dates 2011 and 2014 and said its administered by their AIC (Aquisition I? control division .)

 He also read me the terms , but I could not find them with my invite

Do YOU think I will get the bonus ?

There's only one way to find out for sure... And even if the points do post, they can always claw back later on...

Acquisition incentive control.


The amex system tends to respect the terms of the offer. Whether the employees do is another story.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

That's the problem. There were no TC's that I can see in the
envelope that's why I called

Will play it safe and pass on the offer

He likely wasn't aware that no language offers exist.

As DS says, you will likely get the bonus, although there's a good chance it'll be clawed back.

Has anyone used a no language offer and not gotten a clawback?
