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.

Each transaction is listed in your account on americanexpress.com. Click the one line description of any posted transaction, and it will expand to display details.

OK, I finally found that today - it's the Misc Tax/Fee thing that everyone else has. So maybe I'm okay.

I couldn't see that right after buying the GC because it sat in pending status for 2 days. But now that it's posted, I can see it.

That's normal for airline transactions. I expect you will be reimbursed.

I got my 100 credit with Bofa premium card but I'm still waiting on my Amex PRG. I bought both gift cards the same day.

Purchased 1 x $100 06/20, remimbursed 06/22.
The site is a PITA as it won't let me use an APO address so I have to call in to order. I still need to order 3 x $100 and 1 x $50 between two different cards, so I guess this will be one awkward phone call or a couple different calls.
