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.

hmm. looks like there was a glitch in august. first i thought anything under $100 would credit. then i thought a sweet spot between $50 and $90, but now we just need more DPs because credits look like its working now between the sweet spot.

Here are my datapoints. Seems to be weird what they are reimbursing and what they are not, almost like someone is manually doing it, but I doubt that.

Aug 21st - Airfare $98.30 Not reimbursed
Aug 21st - Airfare $98.30 Not reimbursed
Sept 5th - Airfare $88.30 reimbursed Sept 8th
Sept 13th - Airfare $63.30 reimbursed Sept 17th
Sept 13th - Airfare $53.30 Not reimbursed

thank you for the DP. im guessing its either the purchase coding changed based on an unknown variable or its related to the amount. TBD.

Is Sept. 14 the day the charge was made or the day it actually posted? Thanks.

Charge was made on the 14th, but it posted shortly after. On my activity it says 9/14, I remember it being pending briefly. I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days.

Another $65 ticket purchase two weeks ago, and another $19 seat selection charge one week ago ... Neither one reimbursed. They've clearly clamped down, to the point of not even giving automatic credits on items that are clearly eligible for reimbursement.

The fact that neither posted is actually more encouraging than discouraging.

But it could be early for the seat charge. Please update if either or both eventually post.

Was browsing my transactions on the Amex website today, if you click on the airfare charge it clearly show airfare and shows the route of the ticket purchased, not sure if this is new or not, but may be they are getting detailed data. Doesn't explain why some airfares are being reimbursed and some aren't.

That's how its always been--and how it works for most CCs (at least that I have)--the issuer gets the trip data.

Were all purchases on alaskaair.com? Were some saver fares and others main cabin? Were they all for the same person? Did any include a seat charge?
