Data Point for UA:
Purchased EC+ on the EWR-TLV leg with one CC (same name as traveler) for $209.
Purchased EC+ on the TLV-EWR leg with different CC (his mother's name) for $199.
Both credited about 3-4 days after the charge.
Why wouldnt they?

2 separate accounts? What's the chidush?
$209 was credited?

Why wouldnt they?
Just providing a data point, mostly in regard to the timing of posting. The T+C indicate it shouldn't work:
"Good to Know
This benefit doesn't offer credit toward airline tickets, mileage points purchases or mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, upgrades, dutyĖfree purchases, or award tickets."

2 separate accounts? What's the chidush?
$209 was credited?


Just pointing out that the purchase could be for any traveler; doesn't need to be for the cardmember.  Not a big deal. Only $200 was credited, as expected.

She probably meant to ask what happens if she cancels the flight? Does United refund her money? Does Amex let her keep the travel credit?
