For JetBlue tickets under $100, does the original price for flight need to be under $100, or just the portion billed to cc should be under $100?

Any recent DPs for Delta GCs?
Also, all reports here work for Hilton Aspire as well?

Thanks!

Delta GC's do not work anymore online (and not available anymore in lounges iirc)

Amex gold, plat & Aspire airline credits work the same way.

I spotted some in a DL lounge recently. I think in JFK. Are there historical dp's of DL GC's in lounges triggering the credit?
Risk is opportunity

I think these are GC that you grab and activate later, the payment is not made in the lounge itself.

They could, even a year later.

Tried it with a cheap ticket and it worked. Got the Amex credit. United gave an electronic voucher. Didn't try yet combining the vouchers

Claw back happened to me on 2 cards. From my experience it seems that if you keep the account open there is less of a chance of a claw back.
