Wish I would've remembered to do it in December as well.
Have you tried calling bank of america to see if they would make an exception to get another credit since you did not do in december

Last weekend I purchased a last minute one-way ticket using a Electronic Ticket Certificate on United websites. Got reimbursed the remaining amount today. I bought other round-trip tickets for the future without reimbursement, which is as expected. Not sure why my 1-way and last minute ticket got reimbursed? Not complaining though.

How much was the reimbursed amount? If it was small, perhaps BA thought it was a fee. I think I read somewhere that someone got a low value (may have been partial, too) WN ticket reimbursed.

Just got another "small" reimbursement again for another ticket I got. This time it was $21. You may be right.

Anyone know if the airline credit would work buying seats on AA flights, on flights booked Avios thru BA?

This thread is screaming for a Wikipost that lists: spending that works for airline expense reimbursement Would one of the knowledgeable posters be willing to start one? I don't have this card or I would do it. Anyone with 90 posts and 90 days of membership is eligible. The link is under Thread Tools.

TIA

If I have 2 Premium Rewards cards, then am I eligible for two sets of reimbursements (one per account)? I have a travel rewards card that i'd like to product change to premium rewards to grab an additional airline credit for this year.

Part of their terms and conditions you can't get a premium card if you already have one. So if you PC to it and try to apply, they'll probably reject your app

I already have a Premium Rewards and a travel rewards card. I was wondering if it was allowed for me to P.C. the travel rewards to a second premium rewards card and grab some more airline reimbursements?

Hi, I created a wikipost of what's been reported so far.

Has anyone trying buying AA 500-mile upgrades?

Do we have to select your airline or it just works?
