I created a gift registery with united but I don't see where you can add travel funds?
If you are planning on selling the registry it may be easier for you add it staright to the buyer registry.

expires after 5 years, its not transferable meaning it would have to be booked through your account.

Okay but it can be used for any passenger? Can it be combined with other credits (I received some vouchers from United)?

Thanks

no.  When you cancel within 24 hour, it still posts and refunds. and then gets the credit.
When I would book an award ticket for ex. With UA or even Delta?(if true what your saying I can even use priceline to book and upgrade on aa.com or the Airline I booked with?

 What is there to bump to $100 with amex card to trigger the Airline credit?

Aside for United MileagePlusX not working for the Airline credit It doesn't seem to work even for a random purchase using the app?

Did I ever tell you guys that I bought two $100 gift certificates on AA at the very end of 2016 then a week later at the beginning of 2017 I used them to pay for flights and the balance after the certificates was like $38 and Amex gave me travel credit for both apparently thinking that the $38 was for incidentals?
Yes 😀

Try for your self, doesn't seem to work anymore shows processing and then says error, the only thing I didn't try is to delete and re put my payment method or try another card.

That shows how much they look into the details of each purchase, a random odd number triggers the credit vs a real $100 incidental fee.. lol
