I had a garbage agent this morning who kept insisting one of my cards was set to AA, when I knew it was UA.  Then he claimed he overrode it and now it's AA.  Was still showing as UA.  I called and they took care of it.

For another account the chat agent took care of it.  If they don't send you the disclaimers via chat and you don't get the email immediately it wasn't taken care of.

Do you get an email confirmation immediately after charge like Amex offers?

No notification at all. Just check your account for a credit a couple of days after charge posts.

Same here confirm each card was changed. Had an agent that claimed, changing on one card will change all!

Does it matter if I buy an E-Gift Card or physical Gift Card from Delta? Is it easier to sell one over the other?

I accidentally bought and was charged $14.95 with express shipping. (it showed up as free but then in confirmation had the charge.)  Regular delivery was IIRC $4.95 After tweeting them they were kind enough to refund the fee. BTW amex also refunded the fee as travel expense.
