Any suggestions how to utilize this benefit? I need to spend $166. I'm not planning to fly HA in a near future. Any other ideas besides gift cards, like purchasing a ticket and then cancelling it? Upgrade fees, etc?

I was able to get reimbursement for preferred seats on inter-island flights.

I did on my Hilton Aspire in early June -- but I had to call/chat with Amex -- there were no issues and they immediately posted the credit....

Anyone know if purchasing Extra Comfort upgrades will count towards the airline credit?

Edit: Went ahead with the Extra Comfort upgrades online. Credit posted a few days later on Plat.

Can anyone confirm that food and beverage purchases while on the plane are reimbursed?

Mahalo!

Edit: I'm happy to confirm that these items are reimbursed.

Paid two award fees of $51.xx each, nothing after 2 days on Gold. The unsettling part is it actually says award fees and displays the entire thing as a flight ticket when the charge posted to Amex. Over at Chase the same transaction just shows as a generic HA charge. I'm sweating bullets...

Did your charges happen to be less than $50? After calling in about my $51 charges got it manually pushed through.

Specifically, yes.
They were all for about $20 in separate credits. I had to run 4 separate charges for two people. Two seat upgrades and two Miles Maximizer.
