I noticed Frontier made the list. Would the discount den membership work to trigger the credit? How about a gift card from Frontier to then turn around and purchase a flight? I see seat selection, baggage are confirmed, curious about the others.

Everything I'm seeing looks like these credits should post in 5-6 days. Has anyone had it take longer? I've got what should be a legitimate charge (AA change fees), but the transaction is over 2 weeks old, and no credit yet. I called BOA and the rep said it would take a full billing cycle. That's not my past experience, and I don't see anybody else with that either. I'm also not exactly convinced that the rep knew what he was talking about.

I'd normally just wait it out, but I've got to cancel the card within about 3 weeks to avoid the AF. Maybe I'll just buy an AA GC. Gotta love having to use a workaround for the system because their own system doesn't work as it's intended.

At least navigate to the Airline Incidental Statement Credit graphic and see if the credit is reflected there. If not, there's a problem.

Thank you. Very helpful. Somehow I missed that that existed. As expected, the CSR had no idea what he was talking about. $0 in eligible expenses on my account.

Discount Den for those that use Frontier codes successfully.

Where should I purchase the AA gift cards? Does it have to be at the airport ticket counter?

100 purchase on 8/8, not showing in the meter. If my meter says $0 it means it's not reflected right?

It might need more time to reflect. Mine took over a week to post
