I bought 4x50bthe other day on the mobile site (attempted to use desktop site but it reroutes you automatically). I didn't have access to a computer and it was the last day to use my credit. It posted as Delta GC on my Amex. Three days later it changed the charges to Delta CSTAR GFTCRD

I know it's a third party processor, my hope is that it is still reimbursed because it says Delta. It is strange though that it processed as Delta then 3 days later changed to Delta CSTAR

Either way I suspect you could call after the fact to try and figure out

Call who? AMEX? Gift cards are technically not reimbursable expenses so there isn't much to discuss.

Just bought 2 x $50 gift cards on the full site on my desktop computer. 1 Jan. Ill let you know what happens. Currently Pending as DELTA AIR LINES

There is also what may be a new logo on that page for a company called “Cashstar”. For what it is worth, the AMEX charge is showing as DELTA AIR LINES GC.

I will check back once it is refunded (or not).

Interestingly I bought the above GCs on 12/30/17 and they stayed pending until today 1/1/18. They just flipped over from pending to posted with a date of 12/30/17 so it seems last minute might work to still get the charge in the current year. They are still not reimbursed but I dumbly bought them through the mobile site instead of the desktop site. Will check back in if they do get reimbursed. Worst case is that I have some GCs to use that only cost me face value.

Bought 4 x $50 Delta e-gift cards through the direct Delta website 12/27. Showed up as a Delta Airlines charge. Posted as four separate transactions 12/28. Reimbursed four times 12/29.
Happy New Year!

Just bought four. They show as Delta Air Lines in the pending charges section.

Per the wiki, I purchased 2x $50 gift cards in the same transaction, using the desktop site for $100 total. Pending charge came through as a single $100 transaction, not 2 $50 transactions (anyone else see this?). Hopefully it splits and I get the 2 $50 reimbursements... will let you know but just an FYI. if i could go back i would have just done 2 separate transaction.

likely, as transaction date is counted

This is normal. The transactions should split when they post.

This is always how mine has worked. And I've gotten the credit.
