**As of now there isn’t an end date. Amex is raising it as a trial period and may end it at any time once they review the results.**
- thanks to @projector for the data point
The GCR had a $90 rebate until Jan 31st, then went down to $50 and now it's up to $100. It's been a wild week apparently.
The GCR site says 30,000 points but when you click through to the AMEX site, it displays 40,000 points.
