Nice, I made a $100 purchase, but now I'm locked out from buying more.
Can it be funded with more without the 10% bonus?

of it triggers airline credit
Who cares about bonus? Can figure something out in a 120 days
Max credit would be 100.

Why can't you fund each family member $100 each (2 per Amex accnt)?

The bonus won't hit your account till 90 days. (Maybe things get back to "normal", and it won't be as easy then to buy and cancel a ticket. But the $100 should not be a problem now...

I'd rather than travelbank funds be in one account.

After you fund $100 to a family member's account, you can buy a $100 UA ticket, enter your mileage info in the reservation, then cancel the reservation and the Elec voucher will be in your account

I was asking why don't you buy a few tickets in your name with your mileageplus number from your family member's accounts (each paid with the $100 travbank credit), then cancel all the the tickets, and all the vouchers will be in your account.
Is travelbank funds better than having a few electronic vouchers $100 ea in one account? (I guess the expiration is better - travelbank funds expire in 2025)
