How long does it usually take to get the $200 credit?  I purchased SW GCs ($50 denominations) a little more than a week ago and have not yet received the credit (SW is my “choice” airline).

usually takes 2 days.
You could call in to do it manually. But there’s a certain amount of days that you have to wait till they can do it manually. IIRC 14 days.

Just realized that my $200 United gift registry purchase from 8/22 was never credited. Called Amex and they wanted to know the specifics of what the purchase was. They rejected it based on it not being one of the categories....
