Delta eGift Cards no bueno

Data point: I purchased one for $200 for someone as a Christmas gift on 11/30 and the credit has not yet triggered (12/10) so I'm going to say its still a no-go.

United Airlines TravelBank

Happy to report a new DP:
12/7: purchased $100 United TravelBank cash (https://www.united.com/offers/travelcash)
12/9: BoA posted the transaction
12/11: BoA App meter shows that $100 airline incidental statement credit was used due to above United purchase

Will report back once I see the $100 credit back to my Visa account.

Can you remind me how to see the travel credit progress in the Boa app, I remember I saw it before, but can't it find it anywhere in the latest app. I did a GC purchase on 12/13 but nothing yet in my posted transaction. Appreciate your help!

In the BOA app, click on account the click on "Premium Benefits" and you will the travel credit info.

You can also see it online on BOA website by going to Rewards tab and then clicking on "Redeem Points", and you will see same info.

I bought a $100 AA GC on 1/1 but it hasn't posted yet. I'll update the thread when it does.

Did that $100 AA GC move your meter in the app yet?

My AA GC also posted on 1/5 and the meter still hasn't moved. If I remember from last year, it took about a week to move the meter, but obviously getting a little nervous.

anyone tried united travelbank yet in 2021? Stacking with AMEX plat seems like a pretty safe play with that 5yr expiration

5yr *max* validity. Expire after 18mos of inactivity though - important distinction. Do not forget to maintain activity 👍
