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. 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.

Can gift cards even be used for award ticket fees?

Companion fare yes, just deposit your gift certs into your account

Use with that companion fare might make this fun :-)

$600 in GC, and I have 6 companion fares right now. Might have just made my selection for AS!

Any word on how many GC can be added to one fare?

You can use 4. But you can add unlimited to your travel bank.

When will the $200 travel credit be available for 2017? Is it one 01/01/2017 or when the december statement closes or when the January statement closes?

TIA!

Saw a DP about 2017 CSR credits already being reimbursed if Dec 2016 statement was closed already. Not sure on Amex.

Do not make the purchase until 1.1.2017. Do not panic when the reimbursement is slow, because you have the option to change your airline partner in January.

Did you buy it in one transaction or did you do it 4 times? I remember you could pick multiple gift certs in one transaction
