Got my card in 1 business day essentially. Picked United as my airline of choice and downloaded the MilagePlus X App. Made the $100 Amazon.com gift card purchase and it shows on the CC statement as "MILAGEPLUS X", category "Travel-Airline". Let's see what happens with the statement credit.

Did you get the 50k for $1k offer?  I heard those dried up recently.  Also, the credit shouldn't be an issue, as long as you selected United before you made the purchase, which it sounds like you did.
My favorite Mustachian credit card:
6% cashback on groceries,
3% on gas and select department stores,
1% on everything else. 

Doesn't get better than that!

Yup, applied this past Friday. Keep trying in incognito mode.

Redeemed my 50,000 points for a round trip from NC to the French basque country, smack in the middle of summer. Retail price for a flight like this (that I would have purchased anyway) is pushing the $1600 mark.

One of my best redemptions so far.

This has to be the best value I've gotten out of travel hacking 50k miles plus $200 credit for 1k spend.  Too bad Amex will only let you get the bonus once on a personal card, for life.

It worked! Here is my timeline:
11/13 - Applied for card
11/16 - Receive and activate card
11/17 - Choose United Airlines for airline credit, make $100 gift card purchase using MilagePlusX app
11/20 - $100 AMEX Airline Free Reimbursement posted

Now to complete the rest of the minimum spend. Thanks for the recommendation y'all!

Can anybody confirm whether this deal is still a go or not? Just read this thread last night and have tried in Chrome icognito a couple dozen times with no luck. Thanks!

Picked up this card, working on the minimum spend. Also picked up a Serve VIP card so I'm planning to load it from the Amex to hit the minimum. One question- does the $100 credit for the Amazon card bought via the MileagePlus X app negate the $100 spent in terms of reaching the $1000 spend?

Thanks!

No,  it still counts.  I spent like $1019 total, but my bill was only around $879 after some credits.  I talked to a CSR and they said I met the min-spend.

For those of you who are late to the party like I am, I was able to get the 50,000 miles sign up bonus for a 1k spend offer to show up today, though I had to click the link over 50 times. Used Chrome incognito mode

This just worked for me.  Got the 50k bonus offer right away in Chrome incognito mode and was approved immediately.  Thanks so much for sharing this offer!  I have two other AmEx cards and that didn't negatively impact me.  As a side note, I then called up AmEx to cancel my Delta Skymikes AmEx (which I've only had since last May) and they offered me a $75 statement credit to change my mind (I.e., to not cancel today).  I accepted that offer (will cancel for real in another month or so) so am feeling pretty good about my card strategy today.

So, I met the spend. Got the airline credit. Waiting for the points to post. What is the timeframe these generally hit? Bill closed about 10 days ago. Still 0 points.

I poked around some, under the MR account... I see 52k points "pending"

After I hit the minimum spend it took a good while, around a month or two, until I got the 50K points.
If you want them sooner you can call Amex and ask them to expedite the points, but I personally didn't bother.

It was going to take 2 billing cycles (60 days) for my points to post, according to Amex customer service. After 2 phone calls and 3 online chats, one of the reps agreed to "expedite" my point. All the others said it was impossible with an initial signup bonus.

Question on the airline credit. I downloaded the United Mileage Plus app, but am not able to find the Amazon gift card. I went into Mileage Plus shopping, and filtered on gift cards, but I don't see the Amazon card displaying. I also searched for Amazon.com, but no results found. How did you guys purchase?

I've probably tried the link 300 times over the past couple weeks and the 50k offer has yet to show up for me.

For me it showed up at the top of the list under the option "Nearby."

Are you using a phone or tablet? I could only get it to work on my actual computer.

Thanks...I was using the ipad app, and didn't have that option. I downloaded the android one and was able to order. Hopefully it comes through on my statement now. :)

It did for mine as well. Hopefully the credit pulls through - I had already used $60 for checked baggage fees when I 'moved' a few months ago, so it's nice to find something to use the last $40. :)

It showed up as MILEAGEPLUSX in pending charges. After it is posted under posted transactions it is now showing up as 'MPX*AMAZON.COM'. Will I get credit for the $100 gift card now?

Got the 50k miles/1k spend offer today using the incognito window (did not take ten loads--maybe 5/6?) and signed up.

This 100 dollar credit stuff may be over my head when the time comes, we'll see.

Applied today and got the offer on the first try.  Already have the AMEX Platinum Delta Skymiles card and the traditional Gold which I'll cancel after getting the PRG.  Not sure which airline to pick but might try the MileagePlus X app and Amazon gift card scenario.

Update- I bought the $100 Amazon card using the MileagePlus app on December 1st. There's now a "AMEX Airline Fee Reimbursement" credit for $100 on my statement that was added on Dec. 11th.

Yup, looks basically identical.  Additionally, to the right of that it shows the following:

Flight Details
Passenger Name: [MYLASTNAME] /MILEAGEPLUS X
Ticket Number: XXXXXXX
Document Type: SPECIAL SERVICE TICKET

I don't recall if this was present prior to the 11th, however.

Thanks, OP! Couldn't get the 1k for 50k to show up on my work machine but showed up right away at home.

What do people find is the best value in spending the points? I may be flying down to DC a couple times for fun next spring/summer.

I transferred most of my points to Starwood and booked a relatively nice hotel is Costa Rica for 6 nights - I think some of the travel partner transfer options are worth a lot if you find the right deal!

Thanks for the update! I bought my Lowe's GC the day after you on 12/7 and was beginning to think it wasn't going to come through. Guessing mine will post in a day or two.

I was just got it.  I had been trying sporadically a couple weeks on the work computer with IE - the 50K bonus never popped up.  Work installed Chrome today and on the first try its there.

It was going to take 2 billing cycles (60 days) for my points to post, according to Amex customer service. After 2 phone calls and 3 online chats, one of the reps agreed to "expedite" my point. All the others said it was impossible with an initial signup bonus.

How to you contact Amex via chat? Or Email? I can't find any links to contact them.

I purchased the $100 Amazon gift card through MPX App on Nov. 22nd and still have not been reimbursed. I  thought I'd selected United as my airline of choice before I made the purchase, but maybe I didn't. I went ahead and selected it after the fact, but will I not get the credit now? It posted like this:

MILEAGEPLUS X
233 S WACKER DR
STE 430
CHICAGO
IL
60606-6462
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (THE)
Additional Information: UNITED AIRLINES
Reference: 320153270638150676
Category: Travel - Airline

How can I be reimbursed retroactively, or do I need to purchase another $100 Amazon gift card via MPX?

You won't get the credit retroactively, you'll need to purchase another gift card.

As for customer service, I found a phone number and live chat option after logging in.

Very late to the party, but I just saw this and figured what the hell.

It took me awhile to get the deal to come up. It wouldn't work at work or at home on my regular connection with any device, but as soon as I switched to our machine running over VPN, what do you know, two tries and I had it.

I was instant approved and it said that it is being sent next day UPS service, so hopefully I can get in before the door closes this year for the $100.

I applied and was approved for the card on December 15th.  Chose my airline, United, used the  Mileage Plus X app the same day to buy the $100 Amazon gift card and received my credit of $100 yesterday after only 8 days.

Will be doing it again next month.

For many reasons, I set my airline to American and not United but I can confirm that gift cards purchased from American are reimbursed with the credit. I bought an American gift card online on the American website on Dec 14 and received the reimbursement on Dec 22.

Maybe next year I will do United and get the Amazon GC.

My card was delivered this morning. I made UA my airline, downloaded the MP app, and bought a $100 Amazon gift card.

Looking forward to repeating next week!

I read on Doctor of Credit today about the $15 off $150 MC gift cards at Safeway and just gave that a try. My Safeway took the cc payment no problem. Now I can use my cc dollars at Winco. Yay!
