Made the purchase about a week ago and the tracker has already moved. Haven't gotten the credit yet, but that is normal.

Purchased a $99 eGC a couple of days ago. Meter moved, but no credit shown yet.

Would a purchase of OVER $100 work?

I just realized that I didn't get credit for my AA GC purchase this time, which I have been doing for the past 3 years.
It's coded as follows:Transaction date: 09/16/2023 Card type: Visa Transaction type: Purchases Merchant description: AMERICAN AIRLINES Merchant information: FORT WORTH , TX Reference number: 4121 Merchant Name:AMERICAN AIRLINE
Transaction Category: Travel: Travel
Online Purchase: Y

Does anyone know what's the best way to contact them? Their customer care lines are taking too long and I am being routed to different numbers.

Purchased a $50 AA GC on Dec 8 and saw the meter move within 72 hours. Trying several more in $50 and $75 increments now.

Seems like YMMV from one account to another.

I purchased $100 AA GC 4 days ago and no meter movement. Purchased a $50 AA GC 2 days ago and no movement either.

2 $100 AA 12/4 and 12/7 each posted one day later and the meter moved 3 days after the transaction posted.

$100 AA 12/11 posted 12/12 and has not moved the meter.

Any success 12/11 or later? Has something changed or is there a systemic issue?

Seems like there may be a system delay. Two UA charges for taxes on international awards on 12/11, meter still not moved yet. Similar charges earlier this year worked.

Bank of America Airline Incidental Credit Redemption Tips

Still have ~$100 left of airline incidental credit, Does anyone have recent experience with tricks to utilize it other than the standard seat upgrade, inflight drinks, etc?

Saw some people used to be able to trigger this with:
  • - American Airlines eGiftCard
  • - United Travel Bank (Sounds like this might no longer be working?)
Any advice is appreciated, would rather not waste this if I can
