I want to book a oneway flight from HNL to KOA on HA in first class. The HA website shows this is $164 on my date, but when the Amextravel website for Pay with Points has it at $260/26K MR. Is this something I can call AMEX about and have change it to 16.4K on their end? Is it worth trying Frequentmiler's "one time exception"?

All DPs I have seen of bookings made after 6/1 regardless of when card was opened (even after OCT 2016) or if card was upgraded after then are getting only 35%

You need to call/chat to get the 15% owed

Thanks for pointing that out. I just went to check my account and you're right. Both bookings I made on 6/2 only got 35% back. I opened the account in February 2017.

Can someone please send a screenshot of the 35% on a new card to dan@dansdeals.com?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

There are definitely many people who booked and left it be, and are now none the wiser. Thievery. 
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

give them a little bit of time to go back and fix it for everyone. They have sent out checks and added MR in the past when they made a mistake even when people did not know about it.
