5/18 - Changed airline to WN.
5/20 - Bought 2x$100 GCs from my iPad...(gulp)
Today - have not been reimbursed yet.

On the AMEX portal it is coded as TRAVEL - AIRLINE

Did I need to purchase from a desktop or am I just panicking?

I see the SW gift cards are non-refundable. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

You paid $200 for gift cards worth $200. What harm would there be if they were not reimbursed?

Advice: be patient. It's only been two days. In some instances reimbursement takes weeks.
