Wondering about JetBlue on behalf of a parent who already selected their account into JetBlue for this calendar year. Thanks much!
I don't think Jet Blue has gift cards

Thank you both. My remaining question is whether there's still some way to bank travel credit for future use. Thanks again.

Bought 2 tickets for travel in Feb and was reimbursed the remaining credit that covered one ticket not to mention the 3X points I earned on the Gold. Nice!

did you (or anyone) try this? Was thinking same... I have $100 to use in next 10.5hours! Any other thoughts would be appreciated too!

Happy New Year!

Curious to know, has anyone ever successfully been reimbursed with upgrading their ticket to Mint (even if it's partial)? I know technically that's another class of service and isn't covered, but a lot of things with AMEX shouldn't be covered but is.

Did you find out whether it would work?

Any recent reports of Even More Space being reimbursed? (Hilton Aspire or AmEx Platinum)

Seems like everyone who has been reimbursed for Even More Space has done so as a separate transaction, after they've purchased their ticket. Any reports to the contrary?

It must be a separate transaction for American Express to recognize it as an incidental fee. If you bundle it into the ticket purchase, it's seen as part of the ticket price.

Just a random data point but I bought Jet Blue tickets through Amex travel portal last week, using my Amex Points for 35% back. Somehow I got both the deduction for using Amex points, and an additional $200 deduction as "Amex Airline Fee Reimbursement".

Not sure if this was a mistake or what.

How much was the ticket? Was it a single $200 transaction or 2x$100? I've seen < $50 tickets be reimbursed by DL, and reports of < $100 are reimbursed on AS.

So to quickly confirm (long time Chase card user, just received Amex PRG), purchasing a ticket and then subsequently purchasing an EMS seat qualifies for the credit? Thanks all.
