I only told them that so Amex manually post the reimbursement. They were for actual flights with gift cards used to partially offset them.
Below if my earlier post.

Heres what worked for me:
10/4 $79.83 airfare paid $50 gift card and $29.83 to Amex biz plat
10/6 $29.83 airline fee reimbursement
10/8 $103 airfare paid with $50 gift card and $53 to Amex biz plat
10/12 still waiting for reimbursement
It looks like only charges under $50 are automatically reimbursed. Charges $50 and above have to manually done . I was able to have a rep manually apply the $53.

Additional charges I've made paid partially with GCs
2x $29.80 11/10 reimbursed 11/14
$44 on 11/18. reimbursed 11/21.
$57 on 11/18. No amount was reimbursed.

Just to circle back, I got whatever credit remained in my account for a change fee. Worked for me, even though I incurred the fee late in 2018, and the fee was not transparent on the charge statement. After it posted, I chatted with csr who manually posted.

I had earlier communicated by chat to let them know the situation and that there would not be distinct bill for change fee.

Does anyone know if Hawaiian airlines sell gift cards in their lounge and if these are reimbursable as airline fees?

Amex Plat: Maybe i'm jumping the gun but purchased (3) fares between HNL - OGG for $48.80 each on Aug 2. As of Aug 6 my portal does not show reimbursed but my benefits portal shows my airline credit used up for 2019. Note that I did use up about $55 in inflight purchases as well as baggage fees earlier in the year. Will update the post when it fully posts to my account.

edit: As of August 8 my account shows the credits as reimbursed!

Do you need to buy the extra comfort seats after your initial ticket purchase to trigger the credit?

what if you buy it at the time of booking, does the extra fee then get reimbursed?

Needs to be two separate transactions for automatic reimbursement. Easy enough.

Bid for upgrade and AMEX platinum credit

Has anyone had success with an accepted "big to first class" upgrade, and get it reimbursed from amex as a fee credit?
