Airline fee $200/$100 reimbursement reports: UA only (2020)
 
Purchased a lounge pass via the app and priority boarding on 12/28. We received the credit back on 12/31.

Any recent data points on award redeposit fees being reimbursed (did a quick search but didn't see any)?

Would go for DL (since that's who I fly almost exclusively) but lots of hoops to make something work and I do have to cancel a UA award ticket (x2) so if those are getting reimbursed might as well switch my Plat credit to UA this year instead of DL

is there credit reversal on reimbursed baggage fees ?
 
Hi, I tried to look for any DP for this but didn't see anything explicitly mentioned in the thread. So my question is, if I purchase a refundable ticket, pre-pay for baggage fees separately to get the credit, and then after a while cancel the ticket. Does AmEx reverse the credit (if it's after a couple of month) ?

Just wondering if that is still an option or a no-go.

Just to confirm the comment from Mia that the lounge pass that posted in 2019 did get credits and did not take $59 from available 2020 credits. Great!

Edit: Award cancellation fee

Thanks. Any chance I will receive the $80 credit in a few days. It is too soon now?

any update on your credit posting ?

So it seems that going forward the easiest way to use this credit is the following:

1. Book a fully refundable round trip ticket months out in advance
2. Add an animal to the flights, triggering $125x2 in pet fees
3. Get $200 reimbursement
4. Cancel entire flight, getting back flight cost + $250 in pet fees in one lump sum

Is this correct?

Can E+ on international flight trigger Amex reimbursement?
I purchased it at 1/1, and I only see code on the Amex dashboard is preferred seat upgrade.

You had me worried. So I checked my E+ purchases from April (NRT-HNL) and Amex has it listed as a preferred seat upgrade too - the section with your ticket number which you may not see until it posts - does list it as Economy Plus. It'll prob take a few days to post because of the New Year's holiday and weekend, otherwise you can call them to manually post the credit.

FYI: An actual upgrade in cabin shows up as Upgrade Charge with Premium Cabin in the extra data - this does not qualify for the credit.

But do let us know if it doesn't show up and/or Amex denies you.

Award ticket fee's were working last year if I recall. I have one in since 1-Jan and waiting to see reimbursement.

Are award cancellation fees ($50 for UA Plat members) currently being reimbursed for 2020? Thanks!
