Please see Wiki. A delay of a week or more is quite normal. Best to post outlier events only.

I tried to do this but it didn't work. No go online; no go by phone. You may be able to get the reimbursement as a credit for the taxes (though technically you're not supposed to). I'd go ahead and use the Amex for the taxes, see if you credit, and if you don't, then buy GCs.

The Wiki is at the very top of this thread. You cannot see it if using Flyertalk's Mobile View, only visible in the Desktop View.

And if on mobile but you still want to see the Wiki, you can select the "view as desktop" option in your browser. Tougher to read that way, but accessible.

What are the options with reselling delta electronic gift cards? If a person is only selling 2 or 3 just once is that a problem? I have seen them sell on eBay for $45 or so.

I know they don't expire so I'm not going to be bummed if it's not advised to do this.

I actually fly delta quite often and was thinking about buying 2 from someone I know.

I don't really see the problem since they are such small amounts? I do see them on gift card granny from time to time.

eCerts diff from the credits that post to your account for IRROPS, etc. T&Cs linked in Wiki. I don't see anything prohibiting resale, transfers, etc. You won't get full value, but if you do it right you shouldn't lose more than 10% or so.

I've always used my credit to cover award fees, some in excess of $100 in the past. But I booked an award with ~$85 in taxes/fees last week, and have yet to see the reimbursement come through.

Maybe it's just delayed, but I've never had to wait more than 2-3 business days after posting to see the credit.

FWIW, I'm relatively sure the intent of the T&C language saying "award tickets" are ineligible is to exclude the coverage of the award taxes/fees, but in theory, my miles are buying the award "ticket" and the taxes/fees are therefore NOT excluded by that language. :p

To further confuse matters, last month I used an Amex companion cert and the $28.20 in taxes for the companion were reimbursed in 2 days.

Upgrade to Comfort+/ Business
 
1. The app and DL website gives an option to upgrade an existing ticket to C+ or Business. Historically this would be reimbursed, but does anyone have recent experience? DL has been changing around how it handles these, and either now or in May will treat them as separate fare classes, so I'm not sure whether DL posts this is a re-fare or other charge.

2. I assume that if I choose to upgrade to C+ or Business/First at time of initial ticketing, I wouldn't get any reimbursement from AMEX. Is that correct?

Any advice on how to manage this would be appreciated.

I realize we are all talking about MR credit but I have a related question...

I also recently was approved for the Delta Gold CC from AMEX. This card comes with a $50 credit for Delta purchases, as long as the purchase is made within the first 3-months that one has the card. So....does anyone know if the $50 e-cert would kick in the $50 credit on the Delta Gold CC from AMEX? I'm thinking it might work the same way, but have no idea.

The key is that the charge posts as being from Delta, and with eCerts, it does, so my guess is your idea will work just fine. Not much for you to lose by trying, as the eCert never expires so I'm sure you'll use it at some point.

After a few PGGMs I've got -$380 balance on my card. I'd like to cancel now, as AF is coming soon. Should I ask for a check?
