So....Any way around what seems to be a 1-time purchase limit regardless of amount? Did $100, went back to do another $50 to round out my Amex credit and itís only displaying my previous $100 purchase with no way to do more.

As covered on my blog, United media relations has told me that this will be an option after the end of the 10% promo!

Anyone else try the Travelbank and get the AMEX reimbursement?

See AMEX forum discussion in https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/amer...ly-2020-a.html for multiple examples.

Thanks! I guess Iím a little rusty these days and Iím not thinking like a true FlyerTalker. Since my wings have been clipped I havenít been that active, so thanks for pointing me in the right direction

And thanks to your earlier report above, I dove in with a $100 TravelBank purchase and a $100 credit posted for me over the weekend. Now to just figure out what I have left after that and my inflight internet purchases, FareLocks (Those work too for the Amex credit! I was much more liberal with those when I wasn't getting the $200 reimbursed through the TravelBank), and an extra snack box here and there earlier in the year.

It's also finally back 'open' where you can contribute again (sans the 10% bonus)--wasn't working previously, seemingly for those that did make a previous purchase. Don't really like the fact the purchase amounts are predetermined by UA, but I guess I'm happy that contributions are back!

Can you share the link you used to make a second purchase? I'm using https://www.united.com/offers/travelcash, and when it opens it still shows my purchase of $100 from a few days ago and doesn't allow for a subsequent purchase.

I clicked on the Dan's Deals link above. Right after the pic of the Dreamliner, I clicked on "10% bonus promotion", which took me right to the screen to purchase it (I was already logged in to united.com, so it took me right to my account's page for adding the funds. (I'm sure ctownflyer doesn't mind us getting there by that route either!)

Thank you. Just wanted to check. That's what I tried too, but it still shows my $100 receipt from a few days ago and doesn't allow me to make another purchase. I still have another $200 Amex airline credit to use.

I made the purchase on 8/9. Perhaps I'll give it a few more days and try again.

I was able to fund my TB once during the promo and once after.
United had told me there would be no funding limits after the promotion, so my guess is that it's a glitch. I've reached out to UA media relations for comment.

I was able to add an extra $100 today no problem. Maxes out my card benefits for the year, next round of loading up ... January 1st :)

I am not able to purchase it again either. I am only seeing the purchase confirmation from a few days ago.

UA tells me they're working on the bug now and hope to have it working later this week.

Thank you. I really appreciate that you reached out to United.

It looks like they partially fixed the issue.

I was able to make another purchase this morning for $100 (yay!). However, when I log back in to make a third purchase (I still have $100 in Amex airline credit to use), it does the same thing as before where it shows my previous purchase and doesn't let me make another purchase.
