100x2 or 200x1?

+1
Better to do 100x2 or 200x1?

Also, how soon after changing credit from Delta to United, can you put through the transaction?

Am I missing something?  I understand the way to get around it by purchasing the TBC, but what's $200 travel credit from Amex if it doesn't work on a regular flight?

Hi,

Would like to buy a united travel bank with my Business amex plat, can I purchase a $200 card, or better split up in 2 $100?
