Happy new year! Just FYI, I bought a $100 AA gift card for $100 on my AmEx MB Platinum on New Years Day 2018 and got the $100 back automatically. You better do it quick before the loophole closes, like it possibly did for Delta. Make sure you choose the airline first on the AMEx site listed under “Benefits”! Then make sure you charge only $100 at a time.
We are still waiting on United, as we still get this message when we try to add to the registry:
Note the line “We expect the page to be up and running in early 2018”, I am not sure what that means. Does January to March count as early? I will keep one Business and one Platinum card on United so that I can get inflight boozes as well as the 50% grandfathered points back. The other 12 cards I am planning to use for American Airlines! If you have not done so already please use the links to apply for a Platinum Card of your own. Remember the $550 fee is waived for military! AmEx is paying you $400 a year just to have their card in your wallet!
