Air Namibia isn't a common domestic carrier, so I doubt anyone has chosen SW!

Now that I have the $100 Southwest eGC, anyone have any recommendations where to sell it? I looked at Ebay, there arent many private sellers out there. Any other low fee websites to dump this?

Just do Ebay, you should get $85-$90 for it. After fees, maybe $80. Ebay is safe, why not use it?

AMEX Platinum (new account as of 10/7):

Fri 10/13: Set airline to Southwest
Mon 10/16: Purchased one $200 GC from Southwest
Wed 10/18: $200 charge from Southwest posted to my account (dated 10/16)
Thu 10/19: Benefits page states "Saved $200 on fees in 2017." (nothing posted)
Fri 10/20: AMEX Airline Fee Reimbursement posted (dated 10/19)

The key thing to remember in terms of timing is that there is a 1-2 day lag between the actual charge/reimbursement and the actual posting of those amounts. As a result, although my statement shows 3 business days between the charge and reimbursement, in reality, it took 4 full business days for me to see it all on my online statement. Some have reported a slightly longer delay (depending on processing time, weekends, holidays, etc.), so I wouldn't start to get concerned until you've given it a full week.

Another thing to remember is to wait at least one full business day after making/changing your airline selection before making your purchase. Several people have reported that making a purchase related to a new/changed airline selection on the same day may cause the reimbursement not to be issued or delayed.
