Amex Airline Credit - Covid 19 Refund

Hello! New flyertalker here, here goes:

In December, I purchased 2 Delta tickets partially with a Delta gift card and was able to get my $200 incidental airline credit from my Amex Plat card.

We are now considering canceling our trip. I read Delta is waiving change fees if tickets were purchased before March, so I should be able to get Delta funds for the cost of the tickets.

If I purchased the tickets for $500, would they take into account the airline credit I received and only give me $300 Delta fund (essentially losing my airline credit from last year)? Or would I still get $500 in credit if I cancelled the tickets?

Delta has no idea that you received $200 from Amex. You’ll get a credit based on the value of your ticket.

Amex potentially clawback the 200 credit if refunded.

Only if Delta refunds to the credit card, which they won’t if it was a non-refundable ticket. Getting a Delta credit won’t touch the card at all so nothing for Amex to claw back.
