$300 per item, 1K per card per year. So if you have an SPG card and a PRG card you'll only have 2k of total RP coverage, regardless of how many AUs you have on each card.

If you are unsure if an item qualifies for RP, then instead of asking for opinions here (slightly better than asking medical advice on facebook mind you), PUTPAC and ask the RP reps. You don't need to give your name or card info, just say you have an item or you will be buying an item and the store has a crappy return policy and want to make sure if there is a problem you can return it.

Return Protection:  www.americanexpress.com/return This is for when, in the first 3 months, the original seller won't accept a return, and the product is still in its original packaging/labels are still attached.
Purchase Protection:  www.americanexpress.com/purchase This is for when, in the first 3 months, a purchase is lost, stolen, or broken.
Extended Warranty: www.americanexpress.com/warranty This covers only what the original warranty covers and extends it for up to 1 year.

Amex can approve RP claims even after the card is closed/cancelled, though YMMV.

I have the same claim I want to do with chase, you could simply state that a pair of shoes lasted me for the past year and each pair of shoes i have gotten before that as well from this company lasted a year and now the same company lasted only 3 mnths?

Is the return shipping fee covered by itself?

I can return the item to the seller but I'll have to pay the return shipping (~$15) will amex reimburse that or is it not even worth it?

They won't reimburse that.
