Dan had said that the transaction needed to be made in 2016 but not necessarily post. Regardless I believe that is what happened to me. Either way the credit only applies after the purchase posts, I have never seen otherwise which led me to my assumption
Well if the transaction posts in 2017 but counts as a 2016 purchase that would mean that it posts based on when it was made, in which case it's entirely possible   that if at the time of the charge it was eligible for a credit it wouldn't need to be that way when it posts.

True point. I guess it has to be tried and confirmed

Dose PGGM need to be under $200 or will a 217 up-sale work?

It'll work and then you'll get 200 back.
