Was wondering the same. Is there any catch here? Why isn't this on DDMS?

Do it and let us know if it all works out. Where does it say Amazon GC?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I did it on a business trip a few days ago. It was direct with Upside. It was only $100 though. The rewards showed up right after travel. There are a lot of options for redeeming including Amazon, Airbnb, Best Buy, eBay, Home Depot, Target, Gap, Lowe's, Nordstrom, etc.

The way I understood it is I would earn a $100 GC after every $600 in travel booked with them.

How was the pricing compared to other OTAs?
Do you earn hotel points/elite nights?

Anyone know what's their cancelation policy on flights?
And if charge is done directly from the airline (to qualify for 3x/5x Amex airfare)?

Think it's 24 hours. It was booked with a company card, so no clue how the charge shows up. Most likely depends on the flight.

Same exact. I booked a JetBlue flight. I didn't book a hotel, but I'm assuming the same deal as other 3rd party bookings, no official recognition and points.
