You're correct, my apologies. I was looking just at your note about the posting turnaround. Thanks for adding the additional reimbursement types to the list.

Purchased a quantity of 2 at $50 each for the yearly $100 credit.

Charges are pending at $100 even. Hopefully when they post it will be two charges of $50. I'll keep you all posted.

For the record, I read everything above.

Charges, or credit? If the charges didn't show, be happy and hope they never do... free e-certs! If you're worried about the credit, see all points in the Wiki, make sure you qualified in all respects, and give it a couple weeks, at least.

charges...and not complaining :), not concerned about credits, just wondering if charges were being delayed by Delta for some reason as I want to change my elected carrier to United but have to do so in January.

Do read the Wikki
 
Well, I know that I read the Wikki, because I have added to it. I also remember reading different posts in this thread. In spite of this, I foolishly forgot to keep my DL gift card purchase to $50. Since I had $67 left on my 2016 DL reimbursement, I ordered a $70 card. When it did not get reimbursed in a few days, I visited the Wikki to double check the instructions on getting the credit and there it was "$50." I was so ticked off at myself, I decided to stop jumping through hoops to get my moneys worth from the PLAT Card. It is almost impossible to get all my $200 back from baggage fees and the like. Each airline has its quirks when it comes to such things as getting gift cards reimbursed. Long story short I called to cancel my card. I'm glad I made the call.

Because it is against the rules to cross post, I relate the incentive Amex provided me in the thread where retention bonuses are posted.http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/ameri...etention+bonus

Haven't read your other post yet, but if you don't feel like the Plat is worth its AF, of course you should cancel or get a retention bonus.

But I disagree with folks who get upset at their own issues with using a loophole to get credit for something that is specifically ineligible for the benefit. Choose a different airline, then, or be okay with not spending anything on fees.

I get my $200 back quite easily in award fees every year, often on just a single intl trip with Mrs. Lee. IMO it's ridiculous to complain about it being "difficult" to circumvent the rules of this benefit.

As posted previously (maybe not in wiki, can't see it on mobile), the charges will authorize as one total sum but will end up posting as separate $50 amounts. This is normal.

In the T&C it says "Airline tickets, upgrades, mileage points purchases, mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, duty free purchases, and award tickets are not deemed to be incidental fees." I am so glad you have such an easy time circumventing the rules.

Does airline reimbursement count towards spend?
 
Just got my new Amex card. Working on my spend to hit the MR bonus. Does the DL e-gift card reimbursement count towards my spend?

PS read through some of the thread, searched and read the wiki but couldn't find anything.

Gift card spending counts towards spending thresholds, however, refunded gift card spending (or any other qualifying charges that are later refunded) will not count.

Can eGift Card (eCert) be used for award taxes?
 
If I purchase eGift Card (eCerts) using my AMEX card can I use that amount to pay for taxed on a DL award ticket. Taxes per person are in the $53 range. I am getting mixed views when reviewing other threads.
