I just want to know why they don't just wait ~25 hours to avoid the shtick that was done. What's the benefit of waiting 30 days specifically?
to punish everyone

It wasn't just "shtick" that was killing them.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Used the 25th of april, still nothing. Let hope tomorrow.

Multiple online chats / phone call and no dice on manual rebate.

I'm grandfathered into the 50% rebate but I've never actually made such a booking. I tried making a first class LAX-HNL booking today on various airlines (including selected airline) and nowhere on the flight selection does it indicate that it's eligible for the 50% (or even 35%) rebate. I noticed on SOME blogger posts in the past, the flight selection screen indicates the flights are eligible for the 50% airline bonus rebate. Those were all from pre-devaluation. Are you guys getting any indication that flights are eligible for the rebate? Or do you just trust that all premium cabin sets will get it?
