Does AA GG's still work? how soon can they be used after the purchase? only asking because an earlier post suggested to wait 72 hours before using.

Yes, they still work. The cards are only able to be used 72 hrs after you buy them, you don't get the number and pin before then.

It works, there is a couple of DP out there that it was a bit complicated to get the credit or the gift card.

What is the normal wait time to get the delta gift card credit? Does it come the same day that the charge posts, or a few days later? Approx how many days? Thanks

UA taxes on award booking (as well as $75 late-booking fee) didn't automatically trigger the credit. In the past, I've gotten credit for the taxes, but the $75 only after chatting.
On another card, made a change online, and got credited for the change fee amount but not the fare difference.
