AMEX Airline Fee Credit
I tried to follow your advice and buy Amazon Gift Card using United app to see if I got credit. From your post it looks like you got the credit at same time as the charge. I did not get the credit.
Suggestions? We almost never fly domestic so don’t have baggage fees. I like concierge service so I guess it’s worth it to get Hamilton tickets and reservations at Eleven madison Park but I’d like to use all the benefits if possible.
I think that’s one of the instances where YMMV.
Im not sure if buying a gift card from United will qualify. You can test it with a $50 purchase or maybe search on flyertalk?
Ira–the credit does not happen instantly (usually takes a few days). Did you just make the purchase?
Mine took at least 2-3 days for the credits to post.
