Buying fully refundable economy for another person - refund will be back to me?

Hi.

If I buy a fully-refundable economy class from LAX to TPE and later decide to get a refund, will the refund be back to my credit card or as flight credit to that person's name?
Also, fully refundable means I can cancel anytime and get refund back, right?

thanks!

Fully refundable tickets refund back to the one method of payment. And yes you can refund at any time.

To be clear, it's often refundable anytime before departure. Even some refundable tickets are a zero value after departure. Just want to be sure the OP is aware.
