Amex Airline fee credit refund
I used Alaska miles to book a DL award ticket for May to Japan. Anyway the fees associated with this were refunded as airline fees with my Amex Plat card.
Long story short I had to cancel the trip and Alaska refunded the charge (thanks for the 60 day free cancel).
My question is will I be able to get that credit again…
Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, I couldn’t find it.
AmEx gives you $200 in annual fees. I don’t think they usually take the credit back if you cancel. So you’ll only be able to receive the balance of the $200 that you have available.
Yes, Amex will not reverse the credit they have given you even if Alaska has refunded you the charges. If you did not use up the $200, then whatever balance is remaining for this year will be credited to you for any other Alaska fees you charge to the Amex.
The same applies for the CitiPrestige card as well. I believe it should also work this way for the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
