Airline fee $250/$200/$100 reimbursement reports: AS only (2011-2019)

Reminder: you must enroll and select AS as your airline BEFORE making a reimbursable purchase. Click HERE to enroll.
As of June 2017 gift certificates are no longer reimbursed. Link to buy gift certicates

According to this thread in the Alaska forum the reimbursement of Alaska Club memberships is no longer a problem. To see how much of your annual credit you've used, log in to AmEx, select the card in question, choose "Membership->Benefits" off the menu bar, scroll down to see the travel credit benefit. (with thanks to Lumpylump76)

Tickets cancelled within 24 hours are refunded back to the card used for the purchase. Tickets for travel dates > 60 days out can be deposited to your wallet when cancelled (this has not been true for some time). Change fees may apply depending on your status. Change fees are waived for MVP Gold and MVP Gold 75k members according to this page: https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mi...ID:MileagePlan (expand "service benefits" towards the bottom of the page). The wallet funds will expire one year after the issue date of the original ticket.

So after you buy the gift certs and load them in your AS My wallet, can you use those funds to pay for tax/fuel surcharges on award travel?

Wells Fargo Propel

Has anyone used their Wells Fargo Propel card in 2017 for AS gift certificates and received the refund? I purchased 2 $50 GCs in December of 2016, and received the refund shortly after.


I recently purchased 1 $50 GC (on 1/18/17) and have not yet received the refund.

Purchased 2 $50 AS gift certificates ..reimbursed.
Forgot to deposit into MyWallet account. Made new reservations today and was able to simply add Certificate # and Pin into check out for new tickets.
Was able to add both to new reservation. Looked like 4 could be added before check out.
Do not confuse this with discount codes from AS/

Eventually got the PIN for the $200 sorted out... it was so simple the 3rd time that I suspect the first 2 times the person had no clue what they were doing.


Jan 18 - $50 - refunded Jan 21
Jan 28 - $150 - refunded Feb 1

I guess its just the $200 that don't work
