UPDATE: meter moved to $100 today! so it seems $100 AA gift cards are confirmed again for this year.

Did the $100 credit ever post for those of you who went for the AA already in 2021? I see lots of meters moving but am curious if the final $100 appeared.

Purchased $100 AA gift card on 1/4, the meter moved several days after but no statement credit yet. Terms say it can take up to 7 days to post so somewhat concerning that it hasn't given that it's been 14 days now

I just got my BoA Premium Rewards card. Really want a confirmed method to use up my $100 credit. Should I select UA or AA? Apparently AMEX and UA doesn't work anymore so I'm little scared selecting UA with BoA.

AA is way more lax with their credit than AmEx. I can confirm that AA GC works (just posted today on my account), don't personally have experience with this card and UA TravelBank.

My credit finally posted today (1/20) for BOTH the global entry fee AND the two $50 AA gift cards - about three weeks after posting to credit card
