Called in. Number you should use is 1-800-847-0578 with option #1. Type in 13 digit ticket number and the automated system will look up your refund status. I'm at 6 business days so I guess I need to wait until tomorrow to tell them to process the refund.

would you go for united or american gift cards?

delta allow only 3 per reservation so less useful

american allows 8 per reservation so can end up being a nice amount.

united let you add it all to the registry but the registry will expire after 5 years without activity (yes its a long time and yes easy to add more to) and in theory if they ever got annoying would be harder to sell.

problem is with the BP at 2cpp i find it hard to justify using gift cards and therefore would likely end up selling them off

Thanks. I got 4 separate $50 GC's yesterday also, just in case. Right now they're pending. If they post by 12/31, will I get the 2016 credit in 2017?

(By the way, Dan, now that I got your attention, thank you for the fantastic site, clear and timely info and your willingness to help. Best deals/points/miles site by far! Kol hakavod!)

Make united your airline of choice for your platinum.
create a united gift registry.  create a goal for the registry.
add funds to the registry in increments of less than $100. using your platinum card.
get reimbursed by AMEX.
Less then 100 or 100 or less?

Being that the credit only applies to a posted payment, you would most likely only receive the 50% return and not the credit, being that by the time the first transaction posts it's no longer the selected airline

Dan had said that the transaction needed to be made in 2016 but not necessarily post. Regardless I believe that is what happened to me. Either way the credit only applies after the purchase posts, I have never seen otherwise which led me to my assumption

Well if the transaction posts in 2017 but counts as a 2016 purchase that would mean that it posts based on when it was made, in which case it's entirely possible   that if at the time of the charge it was eligible for a credit it wouldn't need to be that way when it posts.

Need advice:

I have only one Amex PRG (wife's name): previously selected United and did MPX last year for travel credit. I understand that MPX is done now, and we are not traveling on United much, so don't want to do United GC (or gift registry). Since it is a new year and we can change the airline, can we change to SW (travel on SW more) and buy SW gift card to get $100 airline fee credit? If yes, do we buy the GC directly from SW site? After buying, can we just add to our account and keep using it to pay the taxes/fees (flights are mainly booked using SW points).

Thanks.

I just did the gift registry for $100 on 2 different PRG cards. The charge was made on 1/20 and has now posted. I'm waiting for the credit now. I assume it's just a few days like with most Amex credits. I have until mid-February to close the cards as my annual fee hit my January statement in the middle of the month.

It's really too bad the MPX option closed up. Amazon gift cards are as good as cash for me. None of the other options are particularly compelling for me. I did the United gift registry since I guess I might fly on United at some point but really who knows. If the MPX was still open I'd get the Business Platinum that Dan has been talking a lot about. But without MPX, I don't really have a very good use for the $200 + $200 credit so it's not worth anywhere near $400 for me.

What about the 100k MR and 50% rebate? Those are worth a lot more than a few hundred dollars.
The 50% rebate isn't all that great because I have no clue what airline I'm going to fly. Having to pre-pick the airline really hurts the value.

Obviously, the 100k MR is nice. However, I have a lot of points now. Not a lot by the standards here but a lot for me. Between Chase and Amex I'll have about 1 million points, between my wife and I. I don't have that many places to use them right now. I think we're going to have a family trip to Israel in 2.5 years and we might have a trip next January to Hawaii. But that's really all I have planned for the next few years. I also have 50k+ United, AA, Jetblue and Delta miles. There starts to get diminishing returns on points as you compile them without using too much. At this point I'd rather not pay for points. I'll still try and get them but I'm sticking to either fee free cards (first year waived fee) or near free cards like the CSR.

If I am showing credit for travel charge, is there any chance of the credit being reversed if I cancel that original charge?
Yes
i would like to close the card, is there any way to know it won't be reversed? The original charge was refunded a few days ago...if the credit will be reversed does it happen within a certain amount of time?

I bought 2 $100 AA GCs at the very end of 2016 and got credit for that.
Now I used those credits to buy two tickets that were $127 each. Amex automatically credited me 2x$27 for 2017. Interesting. I'm thinking it was the small dollar amount that made the Amex system assume it was an incidental charge and not part of basic fare.

MAX of 3 forms of payment, this is the negative with Delta gift cards compared to AA where you can use up to 8.   See below for limits from their site.

If redeemed at www.delta.com, a maximum of three forms of payment (including eGifts or Cards) can be applied towards a single transaction, regardless of the number of tickets purchased as part of that transaction; if redeemed through any other method, a maximum of three forms of payment (including eGifts or Cards) can be applied toward a single ticket. eGifts and Cards can be used with other eGifts and/or Cards, but cannot be used in conjunction with any other certificate, voucher or credit towards a single ticket.

https://res.vacations.united.com/booking/giftcertificates/default.aspx

What GC do you get from this? Could it be used on United flights? Or for Vacation packages only? If it does work for United flights only, does someone want to volunteer to see if this works for the travel credit, and maybe this can replace the gift registry that is gone?

Data Point for UA:
Purchased EC+ on the EWR-TLV leg with one CC (same name as traveler) for $209.
Purchased EC+ on the TLV-EWR leg with different CC (his mother's name) for $199.
Both credited about 3-4 days after the charge.

2 separate accounts? What's the chidush?
$209 was credited?

Just providing a data point, mostly in regard to the timing of posting. The T+C indicate it shouldn't work:
"Good to Know
This benefit doesn't offer credit toward airline tickets, mileage points purchases or mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, upgrades, dutyĖfree purchases, or award tickets."

2 separate accounts? What's the chidush?
$209 was credited?


Just pointing out that the purchase could be for any traveler; doesn't need to be for the cardmember.  Not a big deal. Only $200 was credited, as expected.

I'm reading that 2 x $50 in e-gift cards works for Delta and $100 e-gfit card works for AA.

Anyone know which one is less risky?

No risk,done it for years.
Same time for either, no difference.
I never tried doing 2 x $50 Delta in one transaction, always did $50 each. With AA the $200 used to work but not anymore, have been doing $100 per transaction.

Ya through delta.com. When i upgraded the upgrades were not delta comfort + but on the actual carrier and were klm preferred and air france preferred. One point tho, those charges didnt get credit automatically by delta, I called delts to reverse the charge because i cancelled the ticket

how to get the charge to post as delta when upgrading on air france?  You need to goto air france site to upgrade and then charge shows up as air france.

$200 used to trigger it,last time I did $200 was a year ago, I started doing $100 AA GC only after reading what some people reported that the $200 AA GC purchase did not trigger the credit.

I switched mine a few times via chat, even after receiving the credit and using the 50% rebate from the first airline. Never had any issue, they did it right away no questions asked.
Just had my first issue after using the airline credit. Will HUCA. Hope it's just an idiot who's not off for the holidays.

12/31 purchase date.
Thank. You.  Just wanted to be sure since a (dumb?) rep told me that a previous charge that posted the beginning of January did not count even though it was a December purchase date.  For another transaction, he said that the airline only put the charge through a couple days later in January and then it posted after that.  He wouldn't give me last year's credit for either.

Was about to buy when I noticed that Flyertalk thread says to wait 36-48 hours from when you activate the card and designate your airline until you actually purchase the GC. I just chose my airline last night (Thursday) and normally Iíd be happy to wait, but Iím worried that if I donít buy GCs until after Shabbos, they may not post until 2018.

Any recommendations? If I buy GCs tomorrow today (< 24 hours) will I get reimbursed, or safer to wait until Motzei Shabbos and take the risk of them not posting until January?

Registered for AA on 12/25. Bought gc's minutes later. Credit posted on 12/27.

Did that on 2 BP's.

Thanks for the quick replies and DPs. Many people on FT also bought GCs right away and got it to post, but some had issues and hadn't received their credits after 2+ weeks. Is there anything to lose by waiting until Motzei Shabbos to be safe? My fear was that if I buy the GCs then, they won't post until January 2018, especially with the holiday. Is it 100% that as long as the purchase is made in 2017 that they'll be credited for this year, not for 2018?

Correct, the posting date of the charge has to be in the year you want credit for, to be safe you want at least a few days before the end of the year to be sure it'll post correctly. There's nothing to lose by trying now as worse comes to worse you'll just get the credit for 2018.

I had a garbage agent this morning who kept insisting one of my cards was set to AA, when I knew it was UA.  Then he claimed he overrode it and now it's AA.  Was still showing as UA.  I called and they took care of it.

For another account the chat agent took care of it.  If they don't send you the disclaimers via chat and you don't get the email immediately it wasn't taken care of.

I lost track and forgot to use my $200 airline credit for 2017. Any chance a rep would grant me more than $200 in 2018?
I called, no luck. Called a second time and the supervisor gave me a $200 credit on my statement. I guess luck was in the air

UA taxes on award booking (as well as $75 late-booking fee) didn't automatically trigger the credit. In the past, I've gotten credit for the taxes, but the $75 only after chatting.
On another card, made a change online, and got credited for the change fee amount but not the fare difference.

buying 5 $50 gift cards (image below) would qualify?

  Well I had ordered a $100 AA  plastic GC 7/27  that was pending for 5 days at AMEX. Amex says AA let it drop off , it never posted and so now I am back to square one.

 Is buying 2 x $100 EGCs safer than paying the $172 for an AA award tix on Amex Plat Personal Card. Tix is on hold , and have to buy by August 7th

I don't understand why anybody would bother with all these gift cards, United gift registry, etc , if you can just book a flight with a pet, (I do it with united) then cancel the ticket (within 24 h) and you'll still get reimbursed for the "cost" of the pet by amex.

  Well I had ordered a $100 AA  plastic GC 7/27  that was pending for 5 days at AMEX. Amex says AA let it drop off , it never posted and so now I am back to square one.

 Is buying 2 x $100 EGCs safer than paying the $172 for an AA award tix on Amex Plat Personal Card. Tix is on hold , and have to buy by August 7th

Each additional card is eligible for one statement credit every four years toward the Global Entry/TSA PreCheck application fee. Incidental air travel fees charged by both Platinum and Gold card members are eligible for statement credits (up to $200 annually). These cards also can receive Amex Offers.

For what its worth, the $200 Delta.com GC did not trigger the credit but 4x50 GC's did - as the experts above advised.

Can i do 4x50 GC's in one transaction or it has to be 4 different transactions?

Post by: OscarAsher on November 30, 2018, 12:42:06 AM
I was wondering that too. But I think if itís within 1 day, it should be fine

You are right.

I purchased delta comfort to trigger airline credit, then when i called to cancel my flight the agent said seats aren't refundable When i asked since when is this policy in place he wouldn't answer me. Bur turns out, besides for being arrogant and weird, he was thankfully clueless, bc a day later i was credit for the ticket as well as the extra charge for the comfort seat.

Last week I used my Hilton Aspire $250 travel credit for AA 2◊100 and 1◊50, if that helps you.

Nope, according to multiple reports on the FT thread about this. But if you can wait 72 hours, I guess you can buy AA gift cards for whatever amount you need for taxes/fees and then use the GC to pay the taxes/fees, no?

AFAIK-- you can "not" use GC  to pay tax on AA-- if anyone has been successful please post

Has anyone who didn't get reimbursement on an AA GC try calling Amex after 14 days? I don't see anywhere that it says the words "GC" in the description, but unfortunately because I bought it on 12/31 (didn't have a choice, upgraded card on 12/30) the AA description says 20190101 even though it says it's for "Misc. fees" and a 12/31 ticket and posted on 12/31.

Do mileage ticket taxes and booking fees work for the amex travel credit?
Last year I booked 2 mileage tickets on united and I had to pay the $75 close in fee. The taxes automatically got the travel credit and the fee did not. I called and argued that the $75 is a fee and should be credited. After a back and forth and escalation they credited it.

This year I chose frontier as I was planning on flying with them a couple of times. I booked a ticket a couple of weeks ago for $29 and the whole thing was credited back for the travel credit.

Why does Delta have to be purchased in $50's, it appears that it all comes form the same website, so why can't I purchase larger amount?

officially it excludes all gift cards on all airlines. DP's suggest that only when done in $50 increment does it trigger the credit. possibly because it's a lower amount so it thinks it's an incidental travel fee. I don't know how they have things categorized
