5X points earned on purchases directly from the airline post in bulk when the following month's statement closes.

Example:
>You spend $1,000 on airfare on JAN 5, 201x on your NON-business AX Platinum card.
>There are no other transaction on the card for the statement cycle.
>January's statement cuts on JAN 25, 201x
>On or about JAN 26, 201x you'll see 5,000 points PENDING
>You pay the January 201x statement on or before the due date
>February's statement cuts on FEB 25, 201x
>On or about FEB 26, 201x you will see your MR balance increased by 5,000 as the points are no longer pending.

For the Business Platinum card, you'll generally see the 5X on airfare booked through the AX TRAVEL PORTAL post ~30 days after the transaction posts to your account.

Example:
>Book $1,000 airfare on JAN 05, 201x through the AX travel portal.
>There are no other transaction on the card for the statement cycle.
>January's statement cuts on JAN 25, 201x
>On or about JAN 26, 201x you'll see 1,000 points PENDING
>You pay the January 201x statement on or before the due date
>On or about FEB 05 you'll see a 4,000 "TLS" bonus posted to your MR account, this represents the 4x bonus (1 base point + 4 bonus points = 5 points earned per $). You will see see 1,000 points PENDING as they related to the base charge of the $1,000 ticket purchase.
>February's statement cuts on FEB 25, 201x
>On or about FEB 26, 201x you will see your MR balance increased by 1,000 as the base points are no longer pending. This 1,000 deposit plus the 4,000 "TLS" bonus equates to the 5X MR (so 5,000 total) offer for travel booked with the Business Platinum card via the AX travel portal.
