Quick Question. Had my other user make Delta purchases of $29 X 2 at Skyclub. Got $58 credit ($29 times 2). I have $142 left. If I purchase three $50 gift cards, will i get credits of $50, $50, and $42 from Amex?? Thanks for the help!!

Can you use E-Certs for anything other then fares? I had some left over from 2015 and wanted to upgrade a reward flight to econ comfort but only credit cards are offered for paying. I wouldn't put it past delta to not allow people to use a gift card on these types of things but just wanted to see if anyone knows for sure.

Also can you use them for taxes on award tickets?

eGifts and Cards may only be used for the total purchase price of air transportation, including taxes, fees, and surcharges imposed on the air transportation. They may not be used for any additional fees (including baggage fees) or for any other products or services (including class upgrades, in-flight purchases, premium seating, mileage booster, SkyMiles Cruises, cargo, hotel stays, or car rentals).

eGifts and Cards may only be used for travel on Delta Air Lines marketed flights, including those operated as Delta Connection® and by Delta Air Lines codeshare partners with a Delta Air Lines flight number.
eGifts and Cards may only be used for the Delta Air Lines air transportation portion of a Delta Vacations package.

This issue is also discussed (inconclusively) in the Delta forum, which is where I would look for the answer:

Any data points on people being reimbursed for upgrades on existing tickets.... Such as AMEX reimbursing for an upgrade to Comfort Plus?

I got reimbursed for the C+ upgrades a couple years ago, back when it was like $19 to move to "Economy Comfort".

I made 3 e-gift purchases of $65 on 23 April and I haven't been reimbursed yet for the flight credit. Is this something that I am gonna end up having to eat?

Possibly, as most success reported here is for eGift denominations of $50 or less.

But you're not really losing anything... You do still have effectively $195 of credit to spend on DL tickets.

That's true. I am getting the hang of this. I just got a credit for Global Entry and I did the application roughly two days ago

Were they billed as tickets? Did you buy all 4 at once?

Please see Wiki at the top of this thread for what is required for it to work.

It's all good. I got reimbursed today. So I am content.
