Bad news, an O-4 Specialist from Great Lakes just reported a $50 gift card bought on a desktop computer on his Chase Visa Ritz-Carlton card posted as this:
My two $50.00 delta gift certificates posted on 3/2/18 and the credits posted on 3/4/18. The credits posted in 2 – $50 increments. I have the [AmEx] Platinum card and still have $100 to go.
Not sure what this O-4 did with his Visa, but there has been reposts that you must use this link to buy the cards, some times the mobile app or website will send you to a third party site. Any datapoints out there from our readers?
Delta and Southwest have been the only option for gift cards since United shutdown their registry in Sept 2017, and American Airlines started reporting Gift Cards on 08 Feb 2019.
Sothwest has always been good for us. I got a single $250 gift card with my AmEx Hilton Honors Aspire. On 07 March 2019 an O-3 reader at Great Lakes reports buying a weird $194.40 Southwest gift card (since he got reimbursed for a $5.60 fee previously) from his AmEx Platinum, and getting that reinbursed:
Delta has been great as well, but only at $50 increments. Some people have been able to surpass the three card limit when they call a ticket purchase in:
You can use more than 3 GCs for Delta flights now, though you have to do it over the phone “Up to 3 gift cards can be redeemed per transaction on delta.com. If you wish to redeem more than 3 cards for a single purchase, please call 1-800-221-1212 and a Reservations Specialist will be able to assist you.”via flyer talk: Originally Posted by ukinny2000

At least since December 2018, my VISA Infinite shows “GFT AA Y FEE” in the description. Even with that, it was reimbursed as part of the VISA Airline incidentals statement credit.-igorjrr from flyertalk
