What do you mean by "unitedcash"?  I can't find that name anywhere on the website.  How is it different than Travel Bank?

Overnight?

Purchases made as of 1/14 are coding differently and no longer being reimbursed.

any charge made *After* Jan 14th is coding as gift certificate.
Which doesn't trigger the credit.
