Delta $50 works fine, so the options are Delta $50 and SW$100.

At this point all bets are off with Amex. Could be 6 months from now, similar to when they clawed back the Saks credit.

I applied and got the biz plat on the last day of the $450 AF.
Was relying on getting the $200 travel credit. Still haven't tried anything.
At this point what does work for triggering the credit?
Pls post (or PM)
TIA
