As a DP, I got my first 50 reimbursed. I paid for 150 in 2 more transactions so lets hope I get that back too. Third was $50 and forth was actually adding 2 $50 GCs. I thought they may be charged as 50 *2 but it went through as 1 $100 transaction. I hope that 100 is paid back too otherwise I would have learnt a $100 lesson ( hope not!)

I bought 4x $50 cards in one go; it showed up as a single $200 transaction on 12/23, and I haven't been reimbursed yet. Should I try again with two $100 transactions?

Suggest you buy $50 today; $50 tomorrow, etc. That way there is no chance they will be combined. Stop if the 12/23 transaction is reimbursed. Cheers.

Not sure when I will see the credit but when I went to benefits page it says I have exhausted my 200 benefit for 2016. So I am going to assume by tomorrow i should 150 back in credit.

I just bought $100 AS gift card, but hasn't posted. In order to receive the credit does it need to post before 12/31? I would like to purchase my second one.

I only recently got the card thus the cramming.

I believe so, I would buy them today if possible.

It took about 2 days before the charge posted so today would be the last day. Also all the AS GC posted and got the credit for it.

is a $100 GC OK for reimbursement?

I see a lot of people posting (very) recently about buying $50 GC's, and a few references to keeping the amount "under $100".

Are there any data points of $100 GC purchases NOT being reimbursed?

I purchased a $100 GC 2.5 days ago, it posted to my Amex account 2 days ago but has not been reimbursed yet. I was going to buy another $100 GC today, but I just looked back at this thread and saw all the $50 purchases, so I bought a $50 instead. I guess I'll buy another $50 tomorrow (my Amex charges always seem to post the same or next day, so I should be OK in terms of it posting in 2016).

[Update: $100 reimbursement is posted (says it posted yesterday but it wasn't there when I checked last night). Now I just hope my 2x$50 charges get posted fast enough. Ahh the life of a procrastinator]

It takes about 2 days after the posting to see the reimbursement. Right after I changed my airline choice to AS, I tried 50 and on 27th I saw the reimbursement. On 25th I bought rest of them, first 50, second 100 (actually bought 2 GCs in the same transaction and it posted as 100 rather than 2 50) and yesterday it was reimbursed.

Late purchase?

Anyone ever purchase them on 12/31? I just bought 4 but no clue whether they will count against my 2016 or 2017 balance. Feel like a dope for forgetting to purchase these
