Would like to know if any updates to reimbursing for award tickets redeposit/cancellation fee ($150)? The last post about it was back in April 2015... Should I buy the aa.com gift cards and pay for the redeposit/cancellation fee or use my Amex Plat to directly pay for it in order to get the reimbursement benefit for 2017? Thanks.

Patiently waiting for the first successful report of a $100 AA GC purchase getting reimbursed in 2017 before I pull the trigger...

Gift cards can only be used for airfare, so I don't think buying one to use for the redeposit would work. Not sure if you could use the fee credit, but it is a fee and they're pretty liberal in its application.

i just canceled an award yesterday and used my Platinum card to pay for the $150 fee. I'll let you know if I get reimbursed.

Thanks... an update on the reimbursement is deeply appreciated.

Any experiences with buying 2 $100 GCs in separate orders on the same day?

There are many, many reports in this thread of people doing what you describe and seeing the charges reimbursed.

Does this work for a Virtual Gift card?

Also can you use these to upgrade to F at check-in?

ordered $100... will see how it goes

I have Plat and PRG and pretty sure I'm closing the PRG after I milk it this year.

so another DP - ordered 2 $100 gift cards, but messed up and did it on the same order which posted to amex as $200 AA MISC SALE. Realized my mistake, and placed another 2 orders for 100 each. The $100 orders got reimbursed , even though they were placed after the $200, so looks like another DP that over $100 will not be reimbursed.
Also - the order posted on dec 30, but the reimbursement happened on jan2, can somebody confirm that will come out of my 2016 credits even though i got credited in 2017?

You can confirm this by checking your 2017 balance.

I known $100 AA GC works, $200 doesn't work. How about $150?

Waited until the very last minute on AA. I purchased 2 - $100 e-giftcards from AA on a personal platinum at 9:45pm CST on Dec 31. It posted on Dec 31 and was reimbursed on January 2.

Don't wait until the last minute, I got lucky because AA was going to start site maintenance at 10:00pm on Dec 31, so if I would have waited longer it may not have processed.

Also I can confirm that I still have $200 in credit until Dec 2017. So I can do this again for 2017.
