I had a platinum around 5 years ago, would a popup come to the agent saying I am not eligible...?
TARB? No hard pull if you get the popup (at least online it's that way).

Yes I did. My renewal was in March and the statement credit benefit started in April I called and was told that they'll do an exception for me and credit me. (I heard others got the same "exception")

I just called and the agent was not helpful so I asked for a supervisor and the supervisor was able to manually apply $200 on my BP and and $50 for my Marriott business card (AF hit in April on Marriott)

Doc has reports of people calling in for the 100k for 10k spend on personal... Anyone here try it?
I had a platinum around 5 years ago, would a popup come to the agent saying I am not eligible...?

UPDATE: He was able to see right away that I had it and wouldn't even start the application.

Do I need to charge my flights to my BP in order to have emergency Medical Insurance coverage?

Free Baggage works that way (except for united)
Howeve, yes you have to charge the flight to your card.

Yes

Amex terms and conditions state that no. Here is a direct quote “other Loyalty Programs (i.e. Non-American Express) DO NOT qualify on purchases redeemed in part or full towards the fare or pre-arranged travel cost. An example would be Common Carrier Frequent Flyer Miles point redemption”. Am I missing something?

Platinum cards do not have medical emergency insurance

I see it depends on which insurance. Trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance- yes. Trip delay insurance- yes. Baggage insurance- no

Do sub-$99 fares trigger the Amex CC travel credit on United?
