Welcome to Flyertalk. WN is the IATA code for Southwest Airlines, and is useful as a search term. Older airlines tend to have intuitive codes (AA, BA, DL, UA), but airlines started later had to pick from what was unassigned. Help is available here:

Tried to change my airline via chat (been a week since I opened the card and chose). Was denied saying "You can change in January". Should I try again? This was the late night staff. Maybe a phone call?

If you haven't used any credit or any benefit of it yet, then yes try again.

I would try again.

I applied for this card in Mid Nov and chose UA as my airline right away after receiving it.

I made 2x$100 Southwest gift card purchases on mine and 2x$100 on my wife's about 2 weeks ago and still no refund... Did I screw something up or should I contact Amex?
