Both worked for me to start, Now not even existing miles in a diff account is working.

Is it still working for anyone or can I go to sleep ?

I transferred mine after yours already failed.
Live forever or die trying.

This sounds better then it actually is, you're getting .018 pp but loosing out on .015 (Amex Everyday) on your next Amazon purchase which is worth more,
Except if you have a lot of extra UA laying around.

Don't know what you're talking about.
Are you actually saying that using gift cards for my next $100 order where I lose out on 150 MR makes this not such a great deal?

This is an awesome deal, I think you are a bit confused.
This is only a bad deal if you have your business class tickets waiting to be booked, and you get a GC instead.

If you value UA at 1.3 then you're gonna break even (or maybe loss a bit, depending on how much you value MR, too tired to calculate now).
