I would use the gift card for a partial AC ticket purchase to keep the insurance. I may just do this!
I might do same, but wonder if Amex will code it as travel. I had a pretty vigorous argument when I bought an upgrade to J on a flight. They only gave 1x miles claiming it was not travel related claiming it came from AC Financial or treasury or something like that.

Took me a while to tell them that I considered it ridiculous and to claim that air travel or upgrades sold directly by AC are not travel related. They tried to pawn me off with a partial amount of extra miles and I just advised I wanted all of them or would not be renewing the card if not resolved.

PS-are you sure AMEX will say flight is insured even if partially paid by AMEX?
