Update 1 1/4/2023: Payment has posted and the transaction name has changed to “United Airlines” like the previous years.

We all know that the American Express Platinum card is one of the best cards available to the public. One of the benefits of the card is the $200 annual travel credit that gets reset on the 1st of every year.

The draw back of the $200 credit is that it can only be used on amenities provides by airlines, but not actual tickets.

A loophole was discovered where you can purchase a United Airlines Travel Bank which is redeemable for airline tickets.
