DP: purchased United Economy plus seating, but selected the airline after the purchase, while it was still pending, and got my credit.

When trying to use more than 3 Delta gift cards for 1 ticket, anyone know if the method of using 3, and then cancelling within 24 hours to get a 1 $150 voucher still works?

Cancelled AA gift cards that are refunded , Amex does not remove the credit, it has been weeks and the credit was not clawed back, if I can only figure out how to make them cancel an order?

Did 14 AA GC a few weeks ago.
Got credit for all by Amex.

Today I see AA canceled all GC and issued me a refund.

Now waiting to see if Amex will retract Airline credit.

Did Amex eventually retract the credit?

Is this really true regarding the $200 airline credit per card?
$19,800 in airline credit ?

Each additional card is eligible for one statement credit every four years toward the Global Entry/TSA PreCheck application fee. Incidental air travel fees charged by both Platinum and Gold card members are eligible for statement credits (up to $200 annually). These cards also can receive Amex Offers.

$200 total.
Meaning all the uses can equally spend to max out the Airline credit fee of $200?

Correct. The total you can receive is $200 across any number of AUs

First time with an aspire credit and Tried to pggm and I guess delta doesn’t allow it to work anymore. Anyone know if any other airlines do? Would really appreciate the help. Thank you
