Anyone successful getting credit for purchasing $100 AA eGC after Feb 7th?
There are some negative DP for crediting these at Amex, so I wonder if that also impacted BofA Premium.

It depends if Amex changed something on their end, looking at Level III details, or if AA changed something on their end, which makes the purchase look different to all the payment networks, not just Amex.

$100 purchase on 2/15. Account shows airline credit has been used. Codes as American Airlines purchase.

Credit to account 2/20.

Confirmed this with a sub-$40 ticket earlier this year. Also confirmed award taxes work and added to wiki.

Do charges on the authorized user's card trigger this airline credit? (My son, an authorized user, needs to put Delta bag fees on this card).
