Not my experience - as a CP.

This is typically what I use it on. I look at my flying schedule and then burn some credit on a monthly pass. It works quite nicely.

My partner and I have two cards (Amex Plat and Amex HHonors card). I actually had about $50 in available credit this year left over around 12/1. Luckily I had a semi-last minute trip (7 days in advance) to go on and opted to burn the last $50 on a paid upgrade. Looked at the seat maps for the two flights, looked at the number of seats taken in first and he number of MCE seats booked, and opted to dump the $50 on the upgrade that looked to be more problematic when using the standard upgrade windows.

Think I played it right.

My miles expired and I can pay to recover them. Would that trigger the credit?

I'm curious about this too. Did you give it a try and if so did it work? Please let us know. Thanks in advance!

I'm forced to this every year, otherwise the credit would go unused.

When buying a ticket? Does the Mileage Multiplier show as a separate line charge on your credit card?

Charged $158 at LGA Admirals Club on 1/22 for two day passes and still waiting on reimbursement on 2/3. It is most annoying since it is a corporate card in which the statement has ended. I did a chat on Thursday and I got a bad rep who kept trying to make this about lounge access rather than incidental. The advice given was to check back on 2/10. In times past, the chat can tell me if it was approved, and then it usually takes a few days after that to show up as a credit.

i was supposed to travel to GYE on Jan 17th, but rebooked to may, due to instability in the country right now. i used the amex airline fee credit, using $140 to upgrade some of the seats, we chose some main cabin extra seats. since we rebooked, do i have any recourse to get that money back? can i contact amex and explain the situation? or am I out of luck.

thank you

I do not know AA's policy in this circumstance, but I think you need to ask the airline, not the credit card issuer, to refund the original fee.

AA will refund your original MCE purchase if you select and pay for MCE seats again on your new flight. I do not have the link at my fingertips but a search for "AA MCE refund" will bring it up.

I'm thinking about purchasing multiple one-day passes of the Admirals Club online, will this method get reimbursed? Idk if purchasing at the lounge entrance would be safer bet.

Also if I wanna purchase one-days passes for someone else, will this method get reimbursed as well?

OT for this thread, but buying them online in advance these days is a bit iffy because whenever the clubs are at high capacity, they will temporarily suspend accepting day passes.
