CAUTION: In February 2019, American Airlines changed the coding of gift card transactions. Although there are a few successful data points since, in general, Gift Card purchases are now explicitly identified, and no longer reimbursed by American Express.

Reminder: you must enroll and select AA as your airline BEFORE making a reimbursable purchase. "Please call the number on the back of your Card to select a qualifying airline."


Data Points on automatically reimbursed incidentals since 2017:

Admirals Club Memberships:
Admirals Club Passes:
Admirals Club Food/Drinks:
Award Cancellation Fee*:
Award Taxes/Fees:
Baggage*:
Change Fee*:
Close-In Ticket Fee*:
Elite 500-mile Stickers:
Elite Challenges:
External Reservation Fee:
Five Star Service:
Infant Fees: MCE/Seat Selection:
Mileage Multipler: Pet Fee*: Same Day Flight Change: Upfares:
Upgrades:

Wifi is provided by one of three third-party providers and is thus not eligible for the incidental credit.

* For items not automatically reimbursed but which are not excluded by Amex, you can try and request manual reimbursement from American Express; however, you may need to wait 14-28 days first.

My missing late December credit finally showed up. Hooray!

So far this year, AMEX seems very fast with the credit. I've been doing them for a family member and they got each one within 2 days.

I appreciate that you made time to post the outcome.

It appears that American Express does a daily sweep for qualifying transactions. If a particular transaction is missed for any reason, it won't be picked up until they run a separate sweep that looks at a wider range of dates, and this may only be done once or twice a month.

I just bought a $100 GC today and within a minute got an email with the new GC. However when I click on the link in that email to retrieve my GC, I get the message to wait and check back in 48 hours. Is this normal?

Yes, and it explains as much on the website prior to purchase.

1/11 bought $200 eGC
1/13 checked my account and I found the mistake I made, 1x $200 eGC instead of $100 eGC
1/13 same day I decided to buy $100 eGC
1/15 I checked my account to check the credit before ordering my second $100 eGC, but I found I got a credit from Amex for $200 with 1/13 as the posting date

I didn't see that credit on 1/13, so I don't know if the credit that I got it was for the first eGC or for a combination of both transactions...
