Maybe hold off, see Docs latest post. After my successful $50 tried a $100 and today is day 4 no credit.... just putting it out there.
Thanks, I just got another Gold card, maybe I waited too long, if this is the case Ill be closing 3 Biz Platinum cards I have had open since 2012, I do not really see a reason to pay these kind of fees, if the airline credit is gone, and all the recent Amex offers are not what it used to be.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Purchased one $50 DL on May 14th, credit on May 16th.

Purchased two individual $50 DL (two separate purchases) on June 26th, still waiting for credit.
Still no credit for the June 26th Delta purchase. It's never been this late so thinking to call them in next few days if it doesnt show up.
