    Hi all-

    Got my statement from my Citi Prestige card and of the annual $250 travel fee credit, I still have just under $100 left. Anyone know if I can purchase a $100 Gift Card from AA and have that count as something I can get the credit for?

    Thanks

    Steve

    I'm not 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain I remember hearing that this does NOT work any longer with AA gift cards.

    I have purchased an AA Gift Card, however I can not say if I have received a rebate, the do not post next day.

    Others have posted refunds in the past, on FT.

    I will post if denied, and scream a bit...:mad:

    Remember that as far as citi is concerned:
    "Airline Fees are defined as purchases made with airlines including Air fares, baggage fees, lounge access and some in-flight purchases."

    Unless you need to cash out now, or don't buy paid tickets at all, why not just buy a ticket some time between now and oct-nov?

    Received my statement and was credited, for the AA Gift Card,

    The gift card does not expire, and can be stacked with other GC,

    Stacked up to 8 and the "gotcha", if you're exec you can hold ug (if available) when you buy ticket (even if not issued), BUT with gc you cannot get ug until it is ticketed (a few hours or day) but ug may no longer be available :( (Something I found out sadly after buying too many gc!)

    I ran into trouble last year using my AA gift cards as the point of purchase at the airport could only take 3 methods of payment.

    Thanks for the heads up using the GC.
