Found a very suitable property on airbnb but host keeps declining without reason, tried from 2 different accounts, availability calendar wide open. Any insight on why a host would reject a request to book? (First time air bnb, but account is fully verified.)
Any frequent air bnb users input would be appreciated.

Not sure what the business model is for airbnb.  But I know that I get charged the full booking amount when I book.  Do they transfer the money right away to the host or do they hold on to it until the time of the stay?

It's held in escrow, and then direct deposited to the host, after the first night.

 So they  have all that money to play with from the time the rental is booked until they have to pay the host?

IINM you can use the individual Amex offers to buy gift cards, then combine all the gift cards into 1 account.

Is that current information?  I think this time GCs are not triggering the Amex rebate.

Not current, hence the IINM.
