Purchased 1 $50 gift card on Delta on 2/24. Nothing yet.

I posted of the success with Platinum and Delta above.

I did the same 2x50 on Gold (rose) card on the same day and still have not been rebated. Any ideas or data points?

As always, waiting is your only strategy.

Transactions that are not captured on the first pass will be processed later. Typically weeks, rather than days. This is why the terms instruct us to wait four weeks.

Well I guess I will be waiting for weeks. I am certainly not dumb enough to call up and ask about it like so many others out there. Thanks for letting me know, I am not alone in the waiting game.

I'm agreeing w/ mia. It's still working, just taking a little time (for me as well). Posted dates are off, but got my Plat credits in about a week. If you're feeling nervous check to see if your Benefit credit has gone down. I noticed that being used up before the reimbursement showed as posted.

Good call, it shows on the benefit page.

did you check the benefit page straight after your purchasing or few weeks later?
i got two transaction one is from primary card holder and check benefit straight the credit come down after i purchase
second purchase from my wife's additional card and no showing on benefit page at all.

The remaining benefit amount typically updates the day before the credit posts. A delay in posting a specific credit does not necessarily indicate a problem, it's a characteristic of the batch processes used.

EasternTraveler Feb 28, 19 2:11 pm

Days later.

JONJON451 Feb 28, 19 2:16 pm

I decided to check the day before it actually posted. I was "nervous" myself. I'm flying Delta in May, so technically wasn't losing, but I wanted my credits!

Should get all the credit now. Today the benefit page shows all my credit has been used. So the following is my purchase history
Totally 3 transaction
1st 2 x $50 on 2/21 and post on 2/23 credit on 2/25
2nd 1 x $50 on same day and everything the same as above.

3rd transaction on additional card and 2 x $50 on 2/26 and post on 2/28 and might be credit on 3/2 .

I just purchased QTY of 2 $50.00 gift cards on the Delta site. I see an authorization of $100.00. Will this post at $100.00 or $50.00 twice. I imagine the $100.00 charge will not be reimbursed. I have the AMEX Platinum.

This is normal. It is so normal that it is mentioned in the Wkipost at the top of the thread. There will be two $50 charges.
