Did Amex eventually retract the credit?
Happened to me, but only with 2 of the eGCs i bought. Been a few weeks, AMEX didnt retract it

For what its worth, the $200 Delta.com GC did not trigger the credit but 4x50 GC's did - as the experts above advised.

Can i do 4x50 GC's in one transaction or it has to be 4 different transactions?

I was wondering that too. But I think if itís within 1 day, it should be fine

You are right.

I purchased delta comfort to trigger airline credit, then when i called to cancel my flight the agent said seats aren't refundable When i asked since when is this policy in place he wouldn't answer me. Bur turns out, besides for being arrogant and weird, he was thankfully clueless, bc a day later i was credit for the ticket as well as the extra charge for the comfort seat.

I also did 4x $50 DL GC's in 1 transaction in June, and got the credit.

Charges eventually posted as 4 separate $50 transactions.

How many GC does Delta allow per itinerary online?
Can I book a fight with 6 x $50 GCs?
