I purchased a $100 AA GC on 7/13. The transaction has posted but it hasn't been credited and tracker tool shows $0 of $100 used. Will update if anything changes.

You should get it in 7-10 days from transaction date.

Ok, thanks. As of today still no credit and travel rewards shows no usage, but it has only been 6 days. Will keep checking.

Gift cards on AAdvantage Award Travel

I was just about to purchase a gift card to use on fees/taxes for a future award booking and noticed the following in the fine print of the terms:
Gift Cards may not be used for ... AAdvantage Award Travel ... on AA.com

Anyone have experience with this type of gift card redemption as I am not sure I'm reading the terms correctly?

Answering my own question - maybe this can help some else...
I have found a flyertalk thread dedicated to this type of discussion and unfortunately you can not use a gift card to pay taxes/fees on award travel.

Alaska reimbursement

Wow no love for Alaska Airlines (AS). According to the wiki on the first page, the only credit that is applied is drinks.

I was wondering if my BoA Premium Rewards Card airline credit will cover the cost of seat assignment on Etihad ?
TIA

You can try (and let us know afterward!), but I won't be surprised if it doesn't. I think someone has posted in the past that they have been told only certain (US-based perhaps?) airlines qualify. Unless you have travel credits on other CC that reimburse you, it should count for travel-related bonus on BoA.

I'm actually surprised there are essentially zero DL data points for GC purchases in this thread. Is this really all we know?
  • AA GCs work (in $50 and $100 denominations)
  • WN GCs do not work
