Has anyone gotten Amex credit recently, for purchasing AA or  Delta gift cards on line?  I always both AA gift cards and credit posted promptly, need to know whether to keep AA as airline of choice , switch to Delta or UA?Thanks.
I purchased Delta GC in July and got credit.

Anyone know a way to get the credit with united? I forgot to change it from last year, and amex says that you can only change airlines in January. The United gift registry is still not working, anyone have any other ideas?

If you haven't been reimbursed at all (gotten $0 credit this year) you can change it on the phone (and perhaps by chat)

The wiki does not list united gift cards so i assume that not. Has anyone had success with united gift cards?
