My credit from the EBCI fees from Dec 1 posted on Dec 11.

Does the credit have to post in 2015 to be counted for this year or does the original charge just have to post in 2015?
AA thread mentioned that AmEx agent said charge will post on date of transaction.

Seems like too many nervous people are calling AmEx which alerts them of buying of gift cards which is "prohibited" by T&C. I'm expecting this perk to be locked down explicitly to T&C in 2016.

That might not be technically feasible without reworking the charging systems with the carriers. From what I can see on the charge details, Amex can't tell the difference between baggage charges and gift certs. I'm sure that could be fixed, but at significant cost, and they might get some carrier resistance to that.

Also, those of us who are travel-geeky enough to do the $200 cert routine would probably find ways within the T&C to get that $200 in value (e.g., cover friends' and relatives' baggage charges).

Got the rebate today. Took 10 days.

No need to contact Amex, folks. Just give it a little time.

Unfortunately, folks ARE contacting AmEx.

On the AA forum, somebody complained to AmEx rep and her response was to alert their fraud dept. SMH

These pointless contacts are unfortunate in that they waste the caller's and the Amex rep's time, but if you're worried that they will blow the whole gift card rebate deal, don't worry. Look at all these threads and the hundreds of posts on this very subject. Amex has internet access to travel-related websites, and it's not stupid.
