I had received the 10% bonus on the initial 1% redemption - so in the spreadsheet I sent them, I actually reduced the amount of the bonus since instead of being - for example, to use simple round numbers - 10% of 9000 (which I got) it should have been only 10% of 6000

just thought I would update this to note that the problem appears to be FINALLY fixed by Barclay, that is, redemptions for qualified travel purchases are now being handled properly at 1.5 points and with the 10 bonus -

a $93.96 hotel stay cost was redeemed for just net 5638 points (6264 minus 626 bonus) or the equivalent of $56.38

Good show, now go get a decent credit card with a good rewards program.
