AMEX 50% Platinum Bonus Report
Just wanted to let folks know that the 50% bonus not only worked great, but the MR points were refunded to my account the next day, even though the T&Cs say it could take up to 6 weeks.
My flight was $1248 (economy ATL-MAN RT) and it would have “cost” 67,500 Skymiles so the 62,400 MR Points (plus no taxes or fees and I’m earning miles) was a better deal. I was also able to use the remainder of my $200 airline credit to move into comfort plus for the JFK-MAN outbound and another 15,000 MR points transferred to VS to move the MAN-ATL return into Premium Economy, neither of which could have happened if I used Skymiles.
