I see you got same offer.

Do you know if this was a targeted email offer or just sent to anyone with a biz green card?

target e/m -- but also if you call c.s. they have same offer--- I was told since upgrade offer -you will get the miles-- I do not trust csr's -- though I do not remember getting a biz plat upgrade -but I am with AMEX 42 years and you can not imagine how many cards I must have had in that time --- CSR'S can only see back 7 years ----recently did a Amex upgrade on Hilton got the bonus even though had same language and did a few ups n downs

I think it was posted in this thread by AJK, that it goes after the airline that books the ticket, but double check.

You need someone with a GDS to check. this will only work if only one of them are selling for that price but if they're both are selling for the same price then you don't know what Amex will give you.
You might be able to check on ITA Matrix.

Can probably book on UA.com and then request that they manually apply points to cover the pieces.
Risk is opportunity

You'll have to make sure the charge is from the airline.
