Uber/UberEats and pay with Paypal? Or lots of other stores that you can pay with PayPal. I think @Dan mentioned walmart. I saw one DP of buying Amazon GC on ebay, though who knows if that's reliable...

Fluz perhaps?
But really... So many sites accept PayPal without funny business.  Is jumping through hoops to find gift cards and whatnot really that necessary?

I don't see why it wouldn't work. I'd be happy to try in February as I've already used the credit this month.

It's a statement credit so I can't imagine why you'd need 2 paypal accounts.

Thinking AmEx is trying to prevent people from closing cards due to waiting for this credit.

You're certainly eligible for monthly paypal credit upto $30 till June 2021.

The maximum time frame to post the paypal credit is 8-12 weeks however this is just the maximum time frame and mostly posted sooner.

And currently..

There is a fulfilment delay with the benefit credit due to which it is taking little more time to post the credit and our team is diligently working on it.

As this is a known issue which was already escalated and reported to the concerned team.

Rest be assured on that

My PayPal credit this month posted within a few days (2 or 3). Seems that there was a technical issue with PayPal purchases made the first week of February and only those haven't posted. Which is certainly unfair but wasn't done to prevent card closure.

My credit for a Feb 5 PayPal purchase hasn't posted.  The rep told me via the chat function "There is a delay due to some technical reasons. However this delay is for Feb Paypal charges only. From March it will get normal."  If the technical issue hasn't been corrected, then how would he know it will be fine for March?  It sure is taking an awful long time to fix.

I made a $30 PayPal charge on March 1.  Rep told me there are issues with Paypal credits and it could take up to 12 weeks. I thought the issue was fixed.

Even if there's no issue on Amex's end it still takes a few days. No reason to get nervous after 2 days.

My Feb 24 purchase credited on Feb 27.

The reason for the urgency is that, I need to cancel the card by March 6th to avoid the $550 fee.

The credit will kick in after cancellation if the charge posted before.

I will lose $10 of February's which won't post this week, but I hope the $30 credit for March posts in time before I bid farewell to Amex.

It posted overnight, so I will lose only $10 from February.  Do you know if the $15 Uber credit for March will be deducted from my Uber cash when I cancel the card?
