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...

CSR does't make you jump through hoops to get that value for points nor the $300 travel credit.
A major step backwards for AMEX.

Wow. Now there is absolutely no reason to stay with amex. The csr is way easier to redeem and the travel credit is more and simpler to use.

Now we know why there was suddenly a delay on the 50%, to minimize the ability to book lots of tickets before the change.

+1 I don't need to have the extra point in my account before booking with CSR. This was the main reason I picked this card as a keeper over CSR...oh well

It's amazing what a quick search can do. I was about to start a thread too, then I didn't.

This is some BS...
was it really a mistake like Doc is saying? Or it was to pull customers into getting the card with a nice bonus offer and point redemption?

Even worse is the 500k cap. Even if they left the rebate at 50%, it's killed by the cap

For those that have legit spending or MS, then your going to Need to divide the spending amongst your spouses card as well, and if still with a short fall, just use the chase cards.
