Interesting...
I booked 5 tickets in econ with LOT on amex travel with cash, and on the confirmation email it says "congratulations, this flight qualified to receive a 35% airline bonus" (but i didn't book with points) so i called amex and they told me that yes indeed it does qualify but since it was a cash ticket i have to wait 48h and call back to switch it to points so i can get 35% back.
Anyone had anything similar?
And is it worth switching to a points ticket and taking the risk that they might not honor it because there is no reason they should.
Not sure who gave you your information. If, for example, if you're selected airline is UA, and you book through United, and one way is with a *A airline that codeshares with them you should get back 35%, since the charge will show up as United for both ways, but definitely not in the case you mentioned.

Okay, so I responded that it was seat upgrade, and she was back after a few seconds with "I have great news for you, credit request has been accepted, to be issued in 5 business days.

It's just worth to know that AA can get stuck and may not be fool proof.

Thanks all for your help!

Do whatever you'd like. But keep in mind you're not just playing a system, you're straight up lying. Not sure why that's ok/mutar.

I'm using the extra funds to buy a new chair. Isn't that seat upgrade?  ;)

Did I ask you to do it? If you don't feel like it's okay, please don't do it.

exactly. Just because they credit it automatically doesnt make you scott free. Buying gift cards is a grey area as it is not what the credit was intended for. So if they automatically credit it, its ok, but if you have to get them to manually credit by telling a lie its not ok?

This is what we call a hypocrite. If you have an issue with it then use it for its intended purpose. No reason to put others down.

Why am I a hypocrite? Who put others down? No, not following the terms and conditions exactly the way an issuer writes it is not the same as telling a blatant lie. If you think it is, then you should probably take a step back and think about it. It's their system which recognizes the transaction as such, not you telling it what to do. Lying straight up is assur, and probably fraud too. Do you really not see a difference?!

Hochiach Tochiach Es Amisecha Vlo Sisa Alav Chet. I specifically said do whatever you'd like, I was just pointing out what's wrong with it, as I felt I should. Sometimes lines get crossed unthinkingly in this game that we don't intend to cross. I was giving advice that you can choose to follow or not. It's your life and decisions, not mine.
