Yeah separate account. So I don't know why. Will try again next week.

Separate account, not authorized user.

Purchased $100 Southwest e-gift card (on Southwest.com) using Amex Gold. Travel credit posted day after charge settled - couldn't have been any easier!

Reports over the years of higher value numbers like $200 or $250 not going through being seen by the system as fees and hence not getting reimbursed. I've never had an issue with $100 credits, but I'm taking the chance after some recent data points and waiting for my $200 reimbursement right now. Getting nervous but it should post tomorrow...

Can anyone confirm $200 (or $250 for these Aspir(e)ational members) GCs getting credited or not? It would be very helpful to update the wiki on this thread to reflect the latest info regarding this as well as how many GCs you can use per ticket on WN.

Gracias, after reading back a bit I have 100% confidence in putting all my chips on getting a single $250 GC reimbursed. Still would be nice to have a wiki comparable to that of the AA and DL reimbursement threads.

So will contact AMEX after the 14 day wait, but will have to have a good story to tell.
Any recommendations on what should I say the charges are ?
What did you end up doing share please? Did you tell them something. Or did it get credited

Any recent DPs of $200 gift cards working for Platinum or do I need to go with $100 GCs?

Hmm. I've seen reports lately of reimbursements for higher amounts on SW. I've gotten full $250 on Aspire and $185 on Plat reimbursed myself.

I did one $250 gc on the Aspire this week. That bodes pretty well for the 200 platinum.
