When I charge a fee does it show right away on the benefits page as having used that amount of the credit? Or I need to wait unti it posts?

Usually it shows that you've redeemed in the benefits section before credit posts

Not instantly when the card is swiped. His question was if it shows that the credit is used before the charge is posted.

Does duty free purchases on UA count for credit? I see food purchase does, so what difference does it make with the duty free? I think they use the same machine, no?

The machine codes differently on each purchase. However doesn't mean it wont work. IIRC amex explicitly says in the T&C it will not trigger

GC + CC triggers
Does this work if booking multiple passengers on a single reservation?
ETA: I only received the credit for one passenger

I can try, but it's clear that it's not an incidental charge.
