Does the AMEX Business Platinum Pay With Points Perk Work for Family Member Airfare?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Jessica, commented:

Does the 50% points back Pay With Points perk with The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN work for airfare purchased for family members who are not cardholders?  I booked a flight for myself, but need to purchase flights for my 3 children.  Can I purchase their tickets and get 50% of the points back?

Excellent question, Jessica!

The good news is the Business Platinum Pay With Points perk is NOT just for the primary cardholder.

As long as you use AMEX Membership Rewards points linked to your Business Platinum card, you’ll be eligible to get 50% of the points back after booking coach flights on your selected airline.  Or on Business Class or First Class flights on any airline.  It doesn’t matter who the passengers are!

This is a terrific perk for family travel because sometimes you can’t find enough available award seats when transferring points directly to an airline partner.
