Pretty sure that's not what it says.

Mine says "Effective one year from the date your Biz Plat *was issued* . . . ."
same here

Might want to look at it again.
Why, what does "date of issue" mean?

I upgraded like 3 weeks before the the benefit changes (had an amex offer) and my letter said June 1st, which is to be expected but really annoying.

What does that have to do with this thread?

Do we have a limaskana on how long it takes for the 50% points to be credited? (just btw, the whole 6-10 weeks thing was told to me by an amex rep chanuka time. And then it was obviously not the actual policy. So just wondering what i can expect now)

Actually it's not a joke - Very possible it will happen after you can no longer apply and get a year of 50% rebates.

Chat them to have it done manually

Made a rookie mistake using my 50% rebate option.... I booked United economy (I'm within 24 hours cancellation) but forgot to set my airline to united before booking... can I set it now and still get bonus or must I cancel, set airline, and then rebook?
TIA
