Doesn't code as travel with visa.
Thanks.
Any other way for a quick chap and close the card like my annual Dec/Jan routine with plat. upgrade?
Amazon GC would be ideal, if there are no better options I could go for Uber credit with MPX, better than nothing...

It codes directly as the merchant, not the vendor, which is why they say it's working.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It would not work for Amazon. It'd possibly work for Uber.
