Reports that Delta e-gift cards are no longer working for airline credit. Anyone have recent experience? Seems like they’re coding as “GC” in the last week or so.
Southwest still working ? Any recent experience?

So nothing works for the airline credit ? I mean GCs or buying cheap tickets etc? I got another card in June and was not in a rush to buy SW GCs , any other airline still works?

Having a major issue. Booked a hotel through American Express travel yesterday in israel with Cash and points. Decided within an hour to cancel the reservation. Amex only wanted to give me back half of everything. I was able to get  my points back but they are giving me a really hard time getting back my money (a significant amount). Please help!

They don’t give you a 24 hr cancellation window?

Transactions I know you can, would assume the same for the points summary, did you ask the reps at amex?

When it comes to such things, either HUCA, or try with a supervisor.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

They are fully transferable from all MR earning cards, including the gold.  We like the Gold for the grocery bonus points.
