My chosen airline is with plat is Delta.
IME, the AMEX website never shows the basic 'resricted fare' for Delta.
Is there a workaround?

I recently bought vgc with my platinum card, and statement came, I didn't see either bonus points or spending points. Someone says gcs are excludes and other says you have to wait for a month to see whether it posts. It always posted after a few days to meet spending requirement for me before. I couldn't find more info about this. Does anyone have similar experience? Thanks!
there have been reports that buying GC'S don't count towards spending thresholds

Its strange because Chase has it. Why would dela delta give those fares to Chase but not to amex?

Can anyone confirm?  Amex gift cards don't work for spend but anything else does?
