Things qualifying/not qualifying under $300 annual travel credit
one member wrote: AA is now showing gift cards as "giftcard" rather than general purchase if the csr looks closely. Last year it worked for me, yesterday it did not and csr told me that's why. However, later the same day I also requested the credit by Secure Message (for "baggage fees) and it was approved. Very YMMV now but still doable. 2/10/2017

Southwest Airlines GCs work fairly easily. I've generally bought them for $150 and said they're excess baggage fees.

This should be the case. Nowhere in Marriott's migration info do they state that RC cardholders with gold/plat are migrated differently than someone who earned via 50/75 nights. Given that they have a whole section outlining how SPG gold migrates differently, if they planned to do something different here I think they would have noted it.

Looks like we'll have to wait till August 18 to book any awards in the new category chart.

What is the point of pushing it that close?

This is big. I just received our 2nd RC card 3 days ago. Never pays to wait.

Per the agreement between MR, Chase and AmEx, Chase is not supposed to continue to accept application for the RC card, in favor of the AmEx SPG Lux card.

Damn. Guess no churning the card for me. I'll keep my grandfathered $395.
