No, your 2015 airline selection rolled over to 2016 if you did not change it in January. You 2015 purchase should have been charged against your 2015 benefit without regard to when American Express posted the credit.

I switched my airline to Southwest on January 19th and the same day bought a $100 gift cert. It took until January 26th for the credit to post. I was worried I made a mistake by not waiting a day or two between selecting my airline and buying the cert, but it worked out OK.

I just did this and though charges are still pending it does show as "Southwest airlines". Is that normal/okay for them to see this is an "incidental" credit?

Thanks

I've had the Platinum personal card for years and knew about the airline fee reimbursement, but didn't know that it could be used for GCs from the SW website. Thanks for posting!

$100 ordered today. I'll update when the credit posts.

Question: SW recently had a promo that gave a bonus when buying SW RR points. Can the GC be used to buy RR points? Or just flights?

Update: $100 credit posted April 19th!
