AMEX Airline Credit and Barclays Companion Ticket
Two questions at end of year: (1st) is there a tutorial on how to retrieve the remaining unused $200 Airline Credit on the AMEX card? I grabbed $200 charge card last year on Delta that I gave out as a gift to an employee, but forgot how I did that……..
and (2nd) We have two $100 ticket Companion Vouchers on American for any flight earned this year with the Barclays Aviator Silver Card. Any idea if those expire at year end?
Update: on the first issue, I went to AA.com and searched “gift cards”…. very easy. Now, I will wait to see if it gets credited on my AMEX card as an airline credit. (?!)

Hi Rob, if you login to your Barclay account and look under “Rewards” and then “Previous Benefits” it will show you the Certificate expiration date. I believe it is 12 months after your anniversary – a card obtained on June 1 means you have until May 31 to hit the $30k spend. The certificates will be good for 12 months after the end of the cycle. My vouchers for my last year are good until October 2019. Hypothetically, if I hit the spend this January for the current year, those certs will be good until October 2020. I think I have that correct.
The past few years I’ve always purchased AA gift cards in $50 increments and I’ve always been credited back the $200.
