Amex Platinum / Ritz Carlton Card Airline Credit

Amex Platinum / Ritz Carlton Card Airline Credit

  1. jmc014

    Since February of this year, American Airlines changed how they code gift card purchases, and many people reported being unable to get these expenses reimbursed by Amex. While I have not seen otherwise, I am assuming the Ritz Carlton would be in a similar situation as well.

    Does anyone have any experience with getting the Ritz Carlton Card’s airline credit reimbursed recently? I tried searching for recent data points, but have yet to find any relevant information.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Even prior to AA’s coding changes, I dont think the Ritz travel credit worked for gift cards. It was harder to use in that you had to call in after the purchase to get a credit and I’m not sure gift cards coded as MISC TAX was eligible. I dont recall hearing about that as a valid purchase for reimbursement.
