I believe it needs to be called in.

Also, if you were trying to book with points, you can't. That may have been the reason as well.
I once thought of that. How is that done? Would Jetblue sell you a ticket for them if you fly only Iceland Air? Or only if you connect with Jetblue? I tried searching for a route that they fly on Jetblue's website, and jetblue didn't come up with anything, even though Jetblue had both cities listed as partner cities..
I see. I wasn't booking with points. I wanted to see if it's possible to use with BP. Jetblue appears on Amex travel? Or I have to call Jetblue, book, and call Amex?

Its not buying or selling points.

Amex gives you a statement credit.

You're just booking your flight on someone elses card and reimbursing them at a discounted rate

Booked Amex  flight with points on Amex business  plat and then  Switched over to paying with money for insurance purposes and then back to  paying with points . However I only got 35% back? Called Amex and told them I'm grandfathered in to get an additional 15 percent.they told me  to  file some claims form ? Any advice on what I should do? Thanks

No need to wait

In response to this - I am currently being denied for my rebate since AMEX is showing my airline selection being made the day after my airline choice was made online and therefore after I made my pay by miles ticket (made an hour after I selected the airline). Anyone else deal with this and successfully get the points rebated?

Is it still about a month plus to get the 35 and 15%?

is there any way to expedite?
