I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but is the Amex airline credit good for taxes on award flights? If so, does it have to be a $200 charge at once or can it be like 6 - $33 charges over 4 months?

No, it generally wont work on taxes, as they are coded as airfare. And on qualifying items you can break it down into what ever denominations you want, and they will reimburse them up until you hit $200 total.

Disagree. Earlier in the year, I bought a cheap JetBlue flight on AMEX Plat and got reimbursed 3 days later. So even if coded as airfare, can still got reimbursed, if the flight was cheap enough.

The $5.60/$11.20 fee on AA award tickets is never reimbursed.

Can't speak to that. Only speaking to the previous post about costs coded as airfare not being reimbursed. That appears to be hit or miss but I've had good luck with it.

I also can't speak to AA, but I've consistently had the taxes on WN flights paid with points reimbursed. For instance, just last month I had 3x/$5.60 reimbursed.
