I used the method that works for the American Express airline incidental credit, but I wanted to post it here and confirm that it works.

Delta: used an eCredit to bring the price of a ticket down to ~$50 and used the Premium Rewards card to pay. Meter moved a few days later, and about a week after purchase, the reimbursement posted.

Where's the credit tracker on the website? I could have sworn I'd seen it before but can't find it anymore.

Not aware of any DP that Delta GC's ever triggered. Yes on United Travel Bank and I believe AA but not Delta.

Thanks. I tried to scroll back a few pages and saw a few DPs, probably including yours.

CardCash keeps rejecting my AA virtual cards and I have submitted one to Raise, but haven't received a response yet.
I might get stuck actually using them😂.

That sucks. I just signed up for card cash. You ever ask them why they rejected your virtual card
