ATL is my home airport

and I have flown a half dozen times with a toddler.

If you are gate checking a stroller, you don't have a chance in hell of making a 42 min layover in ATL.

I'd do the 3+ hour layover. A...

Basic Question: Do Amex Gift Cards count for Spending Thresholds?

I have an Amex Delta Reserve card.

I'm probably going to finish within $2k of my minimum spend to earn my MQM bonus. Do the gift cards count towards my min spend and MQM bonus?

thanks.

Eligible spend is listed on your statement

I found this the hard way. I had about $60100 on my reserve card and the final 15k didn't post. It turns out that I missed my eligible spend by about $25. Amex would not budge even on escalation. ...

if you haven't already booked it....

this could work in your favor....look into AF's premium economy ticket and check the cost difference. The seat is better than coach and you get 150% MQM. Some companies will let you book in PE if...

good point

Well, that should save you some money, then. :D Like many "resort" towns, San Juan (and Puerto Rico in general) tends to charge a premium for drinks, especially at hotels. Enjoy sodas instead, but...

despite what you read on here

Yes. It was likely non-revs who took those last seats.

That said, I've seen all sides of the non-rev international situation. My wife has flown very off peak times in J as non-rev to Moscow,...

When I fly Delta/Sky Team I'm...

In November, I added the Reserve card. My MQMs posted days after the first purchase and well before my billing cycle closed. YMMV
