    About a month ago people were concerned that Amex Platinum was no longer reimbursing airline fees. Does anyone here have recent experience with these in the past month, and whether they were reimbursed? I'm trying to decide if I will keep my Amex Platinum or cancel it.

    I have never had a problem, and I used it earlier this year.

    I purchased an Amazon gift card on September 30 (posted purchase) through Mileage Plus X. Credit appeared on October 3 for AMEX Airline Fee Reimbursement.

    The situation has been recent, August and later from what I recall. Most UA transactions for Credits from the AMEX $200 UA Benefit have not been processed.

    I have various SW fees from 9/21 that have not been refunded, including A-list upgrades and award taxes. The award taxes might not qualify but they have in the past.

    Both are classified as:
    Document Type: MISC. CHARGE ORDER (MCO)/PREPAID TICKET AUTH.
    Category: Travel - Airline
    Additional Information: SOUTHWEST AIRLINES (MASTE

    I've not called in yet.

    Its an app you download which allows you to purchase gift card for merchants on the go. I haven't used in retail brick and mortar stores too much, but I primarily use on Amazon and Papa Johns when ordering a pizza online. You earn united miles with each purchase. If your AMEX Platinum card is linked and used to make the purchase, and United is your reimbursement airline, you should get the credit.

    My statement ran on 10/9, and I received some more credits come through from the airline reimbursement. Not sure why the Amazon one happened quickly and the Papa John's took 3 weeks, but I am glad they came through.

    Hi,
    I just used the Amex platinum for a $100 gift card on A/A and it was reimbursed two days later...will do it again next month and see what happens.
