How to purchase these with airline credit.
I paid for the status match on Amex last year and it was not covered.

Now we need DPs from people with UA TB credit. Like a $201 ticket bought with $200 AMEX and $1 TB credit.

Thank you for this post.

There's one comment that you saw who said they got reimbursed for $15 partial payment if UA ticket with remaining payment having been TB. I'm assuming you're waiting for more data points confirming this works? Or for larger amounts than $15?

I intend to cancel my Platinum card at the end of the month and would like to use up the $200 credit before doing so.  Is there any way to pay for something now which I could use at a later date such as bag fees? With the Travel Bank dead and no immediate travel planned, I am stumped.
