amex plat (regular ) with preferred airlines as AA

they are both on the same acc of membership reward

if i book using point with the amex plat for AA flight will i get the 50% back ? not debiting the amex plat bizz
You'll have to change your selected airline on the BP to AA.

I received an email from amex reiterating the 50% airline bonus on 7/31 along with some other random info on my biz platinum. I used points to purchase tickets on 7/5, and 7/16 so we will see what bonus is currently built in within the next week. Hopefully I won't have to get them to manually do anything.

But is it confirmed that if i bought a business class ticket with my amex consumer with "pay with points" and i have biz platinums in the same account i will automatically receive 50% back? Last time i spent hours on the phone trying to manually do it? Thanks

35% will post around 30 days, the last 15% will post around two weeks after that.

Did anyone know that tickets booked through Amex travel on a Friday can be cancelled without charge until Monday night? I had to cancel a booking I made a Friday and figured I'll try to call to see if they have the same policy as Priceline and they do.

Good to know, thanks.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Just got 35% back on a flight from a month ago. Chatted with CSR and they advised this is a known issue and the remaining 15% would automatically hit my account in a few more weeks.

Old news, read through this thread, the 15% will post around 2 weeks later.

Yeah, that's basically the premise of this thread (or at least the last 10 pages).
