No need to panic yet.
I bought WN early bird and in-flight Wifi more than a week back in early Jan.
Yet to be reimbursed even after my statement cut.
Potentially, they are late in crediting airline expenses right now.

I haven't read most of the last 18 pages. On another site someone says the credit arrives when the statement cuts.

Maybe some people get their credits when statements cut, and end-of-year stragglers and new customers like myself get reimbursed through a separate batch?
Did you buy eGC or physical GC?

After purchasing 1/1 AA $100 egc, posted 1/3. Statement was cut on 1/12 with no sign of credit...

My AF comes up this month so likely will be canceling the card. Does anyone know of a downgrade option(no AF) on this one?

You can get the BofA Travel Rewards (blue card). No AF & no fee on foreign transactions.

What about downgrading to the BoA cash card ? And if I downgrade, do they pro-rate fee (or refund if within 30 days of statement closing) ?

Any idea if Jetblue bag fees are covered? $30 per bag is steep. What about in-flight drinks?

On the app, click 'view' on your account. Scroll down to 'premium benefits'. Should see the meter there.
