Mine is an AMEX Platinum. We should still be patient, I expect us to see the benefits meter move in the next couple days.

Not looking good. Usually this reimburses within 2 days.

Seems this may not be working anymore? Any reports of it posting 1 week+ after the transaction?

So reading all these reports, can we safely assume that after working again for a few days earlier this month, this method is dead for good?

Absolutely not. It has still been less than a week since these GCs were purchased originally, and AMEX says to wait 2-4. I was reimbursed for my purchase on 6/20 and still waiting on mine from 6/23 but I'm not worried yet.

I bought 2 $100 GCs on 6/10, and I'm still waiting for the reimbursement.
I'll change to Delta and AA next year. I don't want to take the risk.

Ummm... you know AA isn't working either, right?

There are increasingly less ways to yield value from this benefit.

Oh, during that time period there definitely was a problem because GC purchased then were not coding as SPD/Air Freight.
