Anyone know if the credit has been successful at upgrading your seat to First on Delta? I know it works on the Amex Plat.

Booked an AA award flight, paid $11.20 in taxes (round trip). It's been 10 days and no reimbursement in sight.

Update: Credit finally posted two weeks later. I did read on one of the blogs that BoA was a little backed up with posting the credits, but all good now.

I bought an AA gift card on June 7 and still no credit yet. Do I need to call BofA?

Does the purchase show on the website tracker? This updates well before the credit posts, which takes a while.

Hi I'm new here, I didn't know the reimbursement was for each calendar year. My wife and I each bought $100 AA eGC in December and got reimbursed a few days later. So I thought I'd try again for this year.

5/30 - Purchased $100 AA eGC on my card, reimbursed on 6/4.
6/8 - Purchased $100 AA eGC on my wife's card, does not show on website tracker or reimbursement yet.

I wonder if they changed it in June

Same here. I bought it in June and still no reimbursement.

Just an update. The Bofa app finally showing the 100 credit for the AA gift card. The credit hasn't posted yet to my account but it should post soon.

Nice, my wife's account shows the credit now too. Hopefully the credit posts before the statement is due on July 6.

Does the Global Entry reimbursement take this long too?

Click on your credit card for transactions. Then scroll down to premium rewards benifits. Click it and it'll tell if you used your 100 credit for the year or not. My credit finally posted two weeks later.

Are you saying you forgot to make a qualifying purchase in 2017 or you made one and never got credit? If you didn't make a purchase. I would say that there is absolutely NO chance they'll let you spend it now, 6 months later. I doubt they would have done in in January, either.
