How did you make your contribution?


I found an old contribution email and hit "make contribution".
If you "manage gift registry", I think they give you a link to send to your contributors.

@ckmk47 - I was asking what you see on Amex charge online? I have yet to get a reimbursement, so my fear is that the charge is coming over wrong. I used united registry - nothing special. The same way that I have always done in the past.

Is it a bad idea to call in and ask? That sounds like a rookie mistake, but asking.

Did anyone try a 50 dollar gift card from delta recently (obviously if registered with delta)? Did it trigger the credit?
