It’s a New Year for Travel Credits, Category Limits, and Loyalty Status

Many card benefits and limits have now renewed since the new year began. Here’s a brief list, pulled, mostly, from our post at the end of last year.

Other things which just reset:

So is Priority Pass renewed today as well for the 10 Visits if you have a card that offers that perk?

Does my 2nd user on the Amex Platinum also get the $50 Saks credit?

No.

I got some transactions from 2018 that has not posted yet, will those count for 2019 or 2018 for amex? I am not sure why the aa charge is still pending even after a few days

I think it’s supposed to count towards 2018 even if it hasn’t posted yet.

I’m in the same boat. Did the Saks late last night just before the midnight ET (before 23:00 CT), so, I’m hoping those count, as I did see the charges hit my GooglePay notifications at 22-something CT. Somewhat similar for some triple-dipping on a Biz Plat, and had the Gold charges post, but haven’t gotten any credits yet.

my 12/26 saks purchase triggered $50 credit on 1/1. I’m hoping it counts as my 2018 credit.

I think it will count as 2018. I am quite sure the date you placed the order does not match the date your transaction shows up on your account

I think your SAKS charges will not count as 2018. 🙁

My charge for SAKS on dec 26 was pending for a few days. It showed up on dec 29 with transaction date dec 28. I received SAKS credit on dec 31.

Your case is processed differently from james’ airline credit

The transaction date for online merchants will match the date when merchant ship merchandise and not when they authorize transaction for the first time.

AA process it automatically while issuing gift card(same day as authorization)

Saks is processing the transaction when they ship the item(tipically a few days after authorization)

I think your AA charges will count as 2018.

My charge for AA on dec 27 was pending for a few days. It showed up on dec 29 with transaction date dec 27. I received airline crediy on dec 29

Can we still buy SW GC using AMEX PLT airline benefits?

This was working as of a week ago. I did this for both the new gold personal and the Ameriprise platinum.

Chuck Based on my research and JB’s post, the SW priority $75 credit is based on the card member anniversary year, not calendar year. So January 1st doesn’t have any significance for that SW credit. Please delete it from this post based on the same justification for not including the Altitude Reserve Credit. (Maybe it will keep someone else from beating themselves up over “missing” the opportunity.” 😉 )
