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

at last check it was 3 per ticket, however on domestic RT u can just book as 2 one ways (usually same price as rt) and usie 3 certs per direction thereby cashing in all 6 for one trip

Is this really true regarding the $200 airline credit per card?
$19,800 in airline credit ?

Each additional card is eligible for one statement credit every four years toward the Global Entry/TSA PreCheck application fee. Incidental air travel fees charged by both Platinum and Gold card members are eligible for statement credits (up to $200 annually). These cards also can receive Amex Offers.

The Gold card has $100 of travel credit.
I have 2 Gold cards in one login.  One has the benefit listed, and tells me I used it for this year. 
The second Gold card (Ameriprise) doesn't have the benefit listed at all.
Do I NOT have it on a second Gold account?
