Did you do the purchase in $50 e-gift increments? If not, thatís the problem.

Does anyone have any experience with the Miles + Cash option and getting the cash portion to be reimbursed? I can't seem to find any data points. I'm looking at a flight that gives the option of 4,500 miles plus $95.60 cash (basically purchase 5,000 miles for a $90 cash component). Is the cash component charged by Delta?

Taking one for the team, I ordered One (1) $100 egift card, then logged back on and ordered Two (2) $50 egift cards.

Will report back....

Were you reimbursed for the $100 DL egift card? Thanks.

$50 eGC, posted/reimbursed normally within a few days.

Bought $214 ticket using $200 compensation voucher + credit card, reimbursed $14 within a few days.

Bought $400+ ticket using the above $50 eGC, did NOT get reimbursed for the add/collect. In scanning the last N pages there was a report of $170 excess being reimbursed (but also a data point of $92 vs. $96) so not sure if there's any pattern to be teased out of this or if it's semi-random. Maybe $200 is a threshold :)

Here's my data point for the AMEX Business Platinum card:
  • 3/26/19: Purchased 4x $50 Delta gift cards (did it as one transaction but for 4 x $50).
  • 3/27/19: 4 separate transactions for $50 had posted to my AMEX account
  • 3/28/19: 4 separate $50 "AMEX Airline Fee Reimbursement" posted to my AMEX account.

Update: in liquidating the last of my GCs acquired via the Google Fi promo, I had two separate a/c, one for $6 and one slightly over $200 CORRECTION: just slightly under $200, both posted on the same day. A single $136 credit posted to my account a day later.
