just circling back to thank the members of this forum. If I'd relied SOLELY on Amex I would have been resigned to think that the credit was not usable towards a FC UG offer. Lo and behold, as reported here, it IS. So thankful for this forum.

So I charged $191 worth of UG offers on 12/28. The purchases posted on 12/29 and was reimbursed on 1/1. Confirmed w/ Amex that it counts towards '15 credit and yes it does.

THANKS AGAIN forum. VERY helpful!!!!

I've been using this benefit since its inception, in my experience AMEX's implementation has always been more generous than the written rules (not just with Delta), this is a good thing for cardholders.

You will get reimbursed for everything AMEX says you will. You may get reimbursed for things AMEX says you won't.

True, and it isn't as if AMEX has no awareness of the issue from forums like this. But loopholes do become an issue when the information about them becomes more widely available. For example, one of the Boarding Area forums today has the following headline: "$50 e-gift card sweet spot for AMEX Platinum card Delta 'Airline fee reimbursement' 2016 (personal and business)." Now the odds are greater the the loophole changes from being only a FT sub-forum topic to something AMEX may no longer ignore.

Did $100 on PRG that posted on Jan 3 for delta - still awaiting credit. Did Platinum for southwest same day but posted on the 2nd and got credit on the 3rd.....weird that they would give one credit so quickly and not the other.

Delta Gift Card Question
 
Has anyone had any success getting a credit for a 200 gift card purchase? Is there any point in chatting AMEX?

Macosty Jan 8, 16 8:01 am

Anyone have a $100 delta gc get credited on their PRG yet this year? I had a $100 SW gc on my plat go through but the $100 delta on my PRG has not come through after 5 days...wondering if I should have done $50?

Please see the Wiki for answers to all of these questions.

jan 1st - changed my airline selection to DL
jan 3rd - reimbursement posted



jan 5 - purchased $50 DL egift (statement date 6th)
jan 8 - reimbursement posted (statement date 7th)

All within the normal parameters listed in the Wiki. For the benefit of those who look here for notable changes, information, or help with the process, probably best to report only outliers.

None of what I reported is in the Wikki.

I added priority boarding fees to the wiki.

Why are Global Entry fees listed? Those aren't paid to an airline. (They're reimbursed by the Platinum Card as a separate benefit entirely.)

eajusa Jan 10, 16 7:54 pm

You're correct. The GE fee credit is a separate benefit in addition to the $200 Airline incidentals reimbursement. I have edited the Wikki to note this.

joscofra Jan 11, 16 7:43 am

PGGM used for both Plat and PRG. charges posted 1/7, reimbursed 1/11.

amolkold Jan 11, 16 11:14 am

I know Econ Comfort used to be reimbursed, has anything changed for Comfort + upgrade? Have a flight I want to upgrade and wonder if Amex will reimburse.
