Do they reimburse WN fees? I paid for the fees on award flight, and it shows as Southwest, then there is an itinerary, and a type is passenger ticket.

Thumbs up Reimbursement Worked

Bought a $100 Southwest gift card from Southwest's website in December 2015, and was reimbursed about 10 days later.

Just a quick PSA...As we are in a new calendar year now, you can change you're airline for reimbursement, however, if you want to keep it the same, no action is required.

From AMEX: "You are eligible to change your airline selection once per calendar year in January. No action is required if you would like to keep your current airline selection in the future."

I did not end up getting reimbursed after 28 days, so I ended up having to call and ask about the status of the reimbursement for Southwest Airlines "pet fees." After calling, they processed the reimbursement the next day. Given my trouble with the $200 reimbursement vs everyone else's relative ease with ~$100 reimbursements, perhaps we should put it on the top of the thread that it's best practice to do smaller amounts? That way more folks won't have to call and alert.

I don't know if its just the amount or if that was some sort of down time. I bought a $100 GC a few days after yours and still haven't had it reimbursed while another one that I bought on 12/26 was reimbursed on 12/29. I'll try chatting with them in a few days since it doesn't like its coming through.

Just out of curiosity, why physical gift cards instead of email?

Data point:

Purchased a $100 e-gift card with my PRG on Jan 2 and was reimbursed on Jan 4.

Opened the card last Feb and used it for a $100 credit with Delta last year.

Switched airline preference to Southwest on Jan 2 minutes before buying the $100 gift card.

AF comes due next month, so guess we'll see if they offer anything to offset it.
