Exactly. In fact, it's more than likely that UA and AmEx are working together to ensure that new GC purchases code "properly," meaning they won't be reimbursed. I hope I'm wrong though, especially since the industry is moving toward broader travel reimbursement for high-end cards. It seems churlish and short-sighted of AmEx to go out of their way to deny this with Chase nipping at their heels.
