one member wrote: AA is now showing gift cards as "giftcard" rather than general purchase if the csr looks closely. Last year it worked for me, yesterday it did not and csr told me that's why. However, later the same day I also requested the credit by Secure Message (for "baggage fees) and it was approved. Very YMMV now but still doable. 2/10/2017

Southwest Airlines GCs work fairly easily. I've generally bought them for $150 and said they're excess baggage fees.

Frequent Miler has a collection of data points of what has worked in the past. Link

DP on travel credits: Bought semi cheap alaska air flights with the Ritz card at 122.67 each, and i was able to get both reimbursed. (fyi i bought two tickets together and they posted as separate transactions).

I also just bought a Delta gift card and on the activity it literally says 'Delta Air gift card' but i asked for it to be reimbursed and the agent reimbursed me.

Also, i did this all over secure messaging

Chase just sent a $10,000 spending offer. You get 10,000 extra points with $10k spend. So it turns this into a 3x card, like the old SPG CC. The only thing wrong is that this is on our 2nd RC card. We may just take it. No offer on the 1st RC card.

Denied for United award ticket taxes over SM (I claimed there was a $75 close-in booking fee and taxes). Should I call in?

Right, but checking frequentmiler there are plenty of data points of people getting reimbursed for things not on the list (including award taxes and fees).

I'd call in. This sounds like a seat upgrade to me.

Do Gogo internet passes get reimbursed with the $300 credit? So I could do enough months to cover $300?

Just called in and said it was for my last purchase with United. They didn't even ask what the purchase was for and said they'd apply the credits.

I have the gogo monthly subscription ($49.95). I wipe out all of the benefit (save $0.30) by the end of June. No issues.
