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. 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.

$50 will probably work. Try it and let us know.

My $100 bought on 1/3 just posted today, so hoping to see reimbursement tomorrow.

Bought another $100 on 1/4 as well, still pending

4x$100 bought 1/1, posted 1/3, reimbursed 1/4--Different cards for each one!

Just a note to be clear...I think it is risky to put more than $100 on any one card on any one day.

Now I am repeating.
