Well put
If they continue to make us wait weeks for the rebate then it's still not competitive with the CSR.

It is also worse that you need to have the full amount in your account and only get a rebate later while CSR takes it off the amount charged.

Is this only for the business version ?
Yes
The personal card doesn't have such a feature

And that it's only for selected US airline. The CSR beats it in every aspect.

Both true, I see no real reason why the BP is still going to be competitive with the CSR.

Because it's a business charge card.

When booking through amex travel, site tells me I'll get 5x points with delta, plus regular amount of points.
1) will I get that even if I pay with points ?
2) Is that only on delta or any US airline ?( its not my selected airline)

Do you have the personal platinum or the business? When paying cash, all booking on any airline through amex travel will earn you 5 ppd

I have the business version.
Question is specifically about when paying with points.

My experiences show no points posting for points redemptions on the BP

Thanx,
BTW I find it interesting that they always show delta the first, and only by delta do they show me the offers such as lounge access and 5x, Do they have a special agreement with them ?

Well yes, they are partnered as far as lounge access, but if your preferred airline is delta, it may have set by default to show your preferred airline first.
