I can see them allowing these benefits to continue for current cardholders, through their card member year, to avoid any suits.

I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

Very, very good news http://www.doctorofcredit.com/new-amex-business-platinum-cardholders-will-get-50-benefit-one-full-year/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

I asked in a comment (currently awaiting moderation) :

Will grandfathered account holders who get the 50% rebate for a year be subject to the 500k/year limitation? Will they also have to wait many weeks for the rebate to post?

The twitter response clearly stated no limitation on points.

Friday is cancelled this week or we have a high powered friday depending on your perspective.

Thank you
Although it appears that they're only doing it for ppl that signed up after the benefit was announced (oct 5), not for ppl that had the cc before. At least that's how the twitter wording reads, doesn't necessarily have to be the official policy.

Is there an official statement from Amex ?

Brings it more in-line with CSR at 1.54 cpp... not terrible... can't blame them for making the change.  Hopefully they bring the rebates return period to 24-48 hours...
Well put
