Isn't this bait and switch? They got thousands of applicants to sign up expecting this benefit, and now they are pulling it so soon.

Grounds for class action?
Well, they just sent out thousands of targeted offers for the 150k biz.

people paid based on the expectation of a sign up bonus worth a certain amount
Hmmmm good point, but I don't see that working as well as those who actually signed up for the BP

I can't.
You think they will leave it as planned? No refunds either? That would be a damn sure way to lose some business

A heck of a lot less than they are now

They may be more valuable as miles instead of MR...

Of AF
Oh, I thought you were talking about the points, I can see them giving some sort of retention but not refunding everyone's AF who asks, I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Of course. It would most definitely not be labeled as a "AF refund" but maybe a statement credit or points. I can see this becoming a lawsuit though... Time will tell.

They're not going to be sellable at 35% back.  You'll get more for a transfer, the problem is going to be for some accounts.....

So when will they be informing their cardholders of this change?? I  'officially' don't read blogs, how would I know? Is there a pop-up message when booking via Membership rewards online?
