I bought something

Postby MB131174 » Wed Jan 07, 2015 5:50 pm

So I chose AA as my airline of choice for my $200 airline credit. I bought one $50 gift card to test the waters. I know everyone says it works, but, I prefer to err on the side of caution with this. I'm pleased to say that literally just one day after the $50 charge posted to the account (posted, not pending), a $50 credit posted to my account. Just bought my second $50 e-gift card tonight.

I received my card on 1/2/15. Blah. Was hoping to have it in time to get the $200 for both 2014 and 2015. Oh well.

I was thinking bout getting the platinum during the beginning in December to get two $200 credits during the first year but felt I should wait till July- that's when my PRG is due to renew. And maybe I can get amex to make me some offer to upgrade. They keep sending me emails to upgrade without points- my other option is apply for the platinum and close down the prg..

I wasn't holding my breath for an upgrade offer from my Green, so I just outright applied for the Plat. I did get the 40,000 offer attached, so I'll have that easily. I tried to get it in time to get two $200 credits, but, the "pending approval" pushed back how long it took me to get the card. I was disappointed to say the least. My Green is just sitting around until I cancel it later this year before the fee hits.

There's been some people who have talked to CS and have asked them to make them an offer with the upgrade (points) and have worked.. I may try it but till June. I also plan on traveling by then so that'll be a plus!
