Received it today @ 11:03 AM EST.

In the email title it says "Reminder ..........., here's to you! We'd Like To Thank You: A special offer for air travel"

Although it says "Reminder" which makes it sound like i received it already before, i couldn't find it yet in any of my email addresses.
(Will try to research a little further, will also try to post a screenshot later)

On a side note, the account that received it, is a Business Gold Card with spends of around 500k/M. (Have a platinum too)
That's great! That means you get 3 points per dollar.

Search email subject "points match".

Can you only use the card it was targeted with?

1. A fine legal mind such as yours should be able to discern what is written literally versus colloquially.
2. As has been said many times here, post count is not an indication of expertise. Example of this: your post just now, no wonder you have 20K+
3. I in fact am sitting on several 100K of MR, not MM, but still enough that I can get a ton of value out of this vs. my relatively meager stash of AA and UA miles.

Your "extensive experience" with this game, despite your post count, is belied by posts like this:

I can't stand hearing that one new person got it and the rest of us are drooling over this but can't get it... torture

Comes across as a whiny, petulant, over-entitled n00b.  Oh, IMO.

You'd never see a post like that come from anyone who has been around, sorry.

they deduct points off your MR acct. You have 1 MR acct for all mr point cards

Nah, as you know there is an offsetting credit.

makes sense, big swipers were targeted.. do you have a personal amex supervisor helping you with any needs too?

I understand that. Was wondering what Hershelsdeals meant by 3x with gold card. Amex charges your card for the tickets and then credits you. Can you chose which card they charge, or is it only the targeted card.

-1.

The credit does not offset the original charge. I can prove it on the statement.

so youre probably getting 2x the points then because the credit claws back 1x/3x the points?

The credit comes through as a customer service adjustment, and does not offset any points

Say all you spent on one statement is $10K on these tickets.

You're saying you got a $10k credit and still got 10K MR? I'd be very surprised.

I believe you; just very surprised the offsetting credit doesn't work like a return.
