What steps do I need to follow to double dip and get 5x via personal plat + 35% rebate via biz plat? Would this work?

1. Log into amex travel using my personal plat login
2. Make J booking
3. Select option at checkout to pay in full with points

Or do I

1. Start the process with my biz plat login
2. select the option to pay with cc
3. use personal plat for payment
4. call Amex Travel to have them process payment with points instead

So, to confirm
If i select pay with points using my PP and BP which is on account is selected that airline, I will automatically get the 35% points (plus the times 5)
And how long will it take?
Until now I have been paying with cash on BP and then calling up the next daY to apply the points and getting automatic 35% on the phone

It's just that recently I saw on the comments of a post (Cathay pacific deal) that Dan made it imply that it still works

So you get the 35% right away instead of waiting 4 weeks?

Used this method on 1/3/19 (subsequently became aware that they killed 5x) for the Air New Zealand glitch. Still no sign of the 35% rebate.

You applied points after the purchase? They have to process it manually, but they usually will make you wait until the 6-8 week timeframe has passed until they would do it themselves. IME.

(Was not booked in conjunction with a personal plat.)
