1/2 - bought Delta tickets so I could use eGift cards from last year but still had charges of $173.30 and $33.30 after using the cards.
1/3 - bought a test $50 eGift card to make sure it was reimbursed
1/4 - I show airline fee reimbursement for the $173.30 ticket and $26.70 out of the other ticket
1/4 - I now have a non-reimbursed gift card.

Last year I also had this happen but in a smaller amount. I was reimbursed for a guest SkyClub entrance ($27) and $150 in eGift cards. The remaining $23 was reimbursed out of a ticket on Delta i purchased.

I will post an update if the airline fee reimbursement for an actual ticket changes before the statement closes.

Purchased airfare of $225 on 12/31, paying $100 with a Delta ECredit, $125 with Amex. The $125 posted on 1/1 as "additional collection", Amex reimbursed it 1/2.

$29 reimbursed from SkyClub (purchased on 12/31)
$99.71 and $29.25 both reimbursed from ticket purchases (had 2 small ecerts to use up so that was the balance from each of the two one-ways) but was very surprised to see that it processed these as refunds.

Will likely try to use the remaining $42 through gift card purchase if nothing processes before that

Last year got my refund through C+ TATL purchases

I had the same as everyone else recently, purchased from the desktop site and credited a few days later.

Quick question though, can eGift cards be added to a Delta wallet or anything so they're in your Delta account, or if you're not using them right away do you need to keep track of them in an excel file or email or something and input them just when you're actually booking a flight? I forgot until just now I had one un-used one from last year! I don't want old eGift cards floating around in my email that go unused because I forget about them :P

(And I'm "cashing in" my credits right now for this year just in case anything changes but don't plan to use them until my Halloween trip this fall :P)

Keep track of them somewhere. I save the email and print a copy of the ecerts.

Sorry to bump my question, but surely someone knows if purchases larger than $50 are reimbursed? As I mentioned, there's no way I could go through eight GCs. Given that the wiki says up to 3 GCs can be used per ticket, I could make six purchases ($75/$75/$50 x 2) work on a single r/t, but buying four $100 GCs would be much easier. First, though, I'd need confirmation that $75 or $100 purchases are reimbursable.

Thanks so much for any help.

I've perused the wiki, but have a question: Is the continuing focus on $50 GC purchases based on the fact that larger sums aren't reimbursed, or just out of an abundance of caution? I ask because the 3-GC-per-ticket limit would make it difficult for me to use the entire credit if each GC were only $50. I plan to continue flying UA for most routes, only flying DL to drain the credit. My spouse and I each have an AmEx Plat, so we'll have a total $400 DL credit if all goes well, and I'd prefer to use the entire sum on a single r/t ticket.
