As long as it's not an ineligible transaction for rewards (e.g. cash advances, fees, etc.), then it should count. While all efforts are made to have the counter update real-time, there are sometimes instances where it may be delayed. Please contact customer service if it does not reflect properly on your statement as that is when the counter and necessary adjustments are forced through.

"Make 20 or more purchases with your Card in a billing period and earn 20% extra points on those purchases less returns and credits. Terms and limitations apply."

Also, it might be a good idea to edit out the city names on your posted transactions for general privacy concerns.

Thank you for your reply! They are all regular purchases I assume based on the terms. It's my first month with the card, so perhaps I'm jmuping the gun a little!

Counter can be delayed.  It is best to keep track in your mind how many purchases you make.    Also, it takes an extra statement for the points to be added to your account.

Because of your message I now know what town your nephew plays little league in. I would definitely consider editing your original post. I'm not an axe murder, but someone might be.

they add up all your points and the next month it will add 20%. Use it for amazon and get 2x points right now BTW.

Open one, close three. Open one, close three.
