I used a credit for delta and paid the extra with my CC, it showed up as an additional collection. Anyone ever have something like this credited before?

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

Does United refund economy plus seats when canceled within 24 hours?

They do. Also, Amex claws back bonuses/credits from those who try to beat the system.

Did it work?

Yes it worked, I got the credit.

Any way to combine numerous Delta GC into one large one or move them into a travel bank to use them all on one reservation?

I now have 7 x $50 and would like to combine them for one purchase.

No, but i think it is possible to use for 1 ticket by calling delta.

Has anyone who didn't get reimbursement on an AA GC try calling Amex after 14 days? I don't see anywhere that it says the words "GC" in the description, but unfortunately because I bought it on 12/31 (didn't have a choice, upgraded card on 12/30) the AA description says 20190101 even though it says it's for "Misc. fees" and a 12/31 ticket and posted on 12/31.

No issues.

+1.

At first thought I would have an issue since it showed on the Amex website as as having a ticket number but a few days later it refunded.
