Cool, maybe it was a fluke. I'll remove my note from up top.

Is the benefit for Amex Platinum each calendar year or every 12 months having the card? I signed up last summer and used my $200 successfully for SW, but I'm wondering whether I can do it again or if I have to wait another 6 months or so?

Does anyone know if paying award taxes (especially for international awards) still counts? In previous years this was a great way to get a full $200 credit directly to the card by simply purchasing international award tickets, paying taxes with the platinum card, then redepositing the miles (requires sufficient status for free redeposits on the appropriate airline).

I'll try chatting with them in a few days since it doesn't like its coming through.
I'm in the exact situation. Any update on this? Thanks!
