please advice. THank you!
If I were you I'd buy $50 GCs. I would also buy them two at a time a couple of days apart. They may have a threshold under which charges automatically post, but I don't know. Either way - it will work. Even if you bought $100 GCs. But according to recent experiences, you may have to call in or chat after 4 weeks to have the the credit manually posted. It's smooth. So don't worry about that. If I'm not mistaken, SW allows up 8 (?) cards at a time, so multiple gift cards is not an issue.

Why would 2 separate transactions post as 1? They will post as 2 separate $100 transactions..

That's pretty promising to hear. I wonder if it was a glitch in the system that kept the credit from automatically being issued from earlier reports. I still got another rpg to use the airline credit.

Just got reimbursed for $100 SW gift card. CSR said it would take 2-4 weeks and because it was almost 4 weeks since purchase, he did it manually. It took 2 days but I received the credit.

Successful reimbursement after calling in

Thank you all for your guidance!

My $100 southwest giftcard purchase from August 26 was promptly reimbursed after talking with an agent for less than minute.

Quick question, do these need to be physical from southwest, or do online also work?

Appreciate your guidance and help!

I've only ever done digital gift cards and they've all been reimbursed.
