What about a $25 remaining benefit? I have $25 left on my Business Plat Card, which is set to Delta for 2017. If I buy a $50 card, will that trigger the $25 credit? I have never done a partial before....
I have my PRG set to Delta and I did two $50 cards back in the spring and both were credited within a few days.
It's always YMMV, though, and if they ever 'fix' the loophole you can't call about it since it's not supposed to work, anyway.
According to amex’s Own terms. Yes it will.
But that’s only if they give you credit for the gift card purchase.
This exactly. I had partial credit for a large-ish beverage order () issued by Amex for Southwest.
The Platinum Card from American Express: Just try to walk off of your next Southwest flight without assistance.™
Yes on the partial credits working. I had $50 remaining when I bought a $70 SW ticket and the credit took off 50 and I had to pay the remaining balance. I came out even because I ended up buying 2 early bird check ins and 4 drinks.
This was my post a couple weeks ago. I have PRG and Plat and wanted to extract the airline credits. I purchased AA giftcards in $100 increments and was reimbursed in about 2 days for all. Anything over $100 will NOT be reimbursed. So, I have $300. Will be doing the same in January.
AA gift cards are expressly excluded from the airline credit and therefore won't work. That said, Amex seems to reimburse gift cards purchased on their website as long as you have no New Jersey address or phone information in either your AA or Amex account (I have no idea why that is).
I believe the program is based in New Jersey so that may play a part in things.
