Check received and cleared from CardCash. The experience was smooth and I would use them again.

Does AA GC still trigger the airline credit? Any recent DP?

Yes. Just bought it three days ago (after reading recent success stories on DoC), The charge posted yesterday and the $100 credit is already showing up as earned. The gift card still isn't available (takes three days) but will be shortly after midnight, at which point I will submit it to Cardcash.

Anybody with trouble buying a gift card on AA?

I tried for the $100 ecard and keep getting this:

Please call American Airlines Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. CT at 1-800-677-9555 with reference number XXX to complete your order.

Maybe something is down? Try again today or on Monday?

Meanwhile, I got my AA card this morning and submitted it to Cardcash. I got an email saying that they had accepted it 12 minutes after the order confirmation email.

Bought random value AA GC (like $80.xx) on 12/2, the bar shows all credit used up on 12/6. Still waiting for credit to appear on the card, but it's the weekend so i'm not worried. Datapoint is, you can buy AA cards of random value.

I haven't gotten around to submitting mine. It would be nice if you can provide another DP (hopefully positive).

In terms of payment? I selected Paypal Express and just got paid, a bit over 24 hours from the time that the card was submitted and accepted.

DOC mentions all card holders are eligible for $50 grocery credit. Has any one not gotten it? I made a $2x.xx purchase in mid july in grocery store, and did not get the credit, am wondering if i need to do the full $50 and not just partial to get the credit. Have been an existing card holder for any years, and did not receive an email or popup. Its easy enough to spend, but is still annoying that I did not get the partial credit yet.

That's right and thanks for your report. I want to feel somewhat assured I will get paid as promised after handing over the PIN for GC.

Hi,
my reimbursement meter moved on Thursday, but credit still has not posted. Is it normal?

According to DoC credit will appear after all $50 spent or in the end of the year (if partial).

Yes. Most people report that it takes a week or so to get credited. Personally, once I see it on the meter and the transaction detail when I click on the meter, I'm not concerned about getting the actual credit.

Update -- got credit from BofA today, less than a week after the purchase.
