But if the $300 credit was used for groceries and gas, why would $300 of later travel spending not earn points? The rule, as I understand it, is that reimbursed travel spending does not earn points....

Yes, I cancelled some reservations. "Clawback" is not the term I would use, but the effect is the same. When a dollar amount hits your account, positive or negative, it generates UR points with the...

It doesn't concern me since I didn't have an uncapped cert, but I do want to shout, "You're a genius!"
