Travel Bank
   If you book a ticket and cancel within 24 hours, you're entitled to a refund to original form of payment, so funds will return to your Travel Bank - with the same expiration as it had before.
   If you book a ticket and cancel after 24 hours, you get an Electronic Travel Certificate (ETC) in the name of the passenger. To be used by that passenger. with an expiration 2 years from the date it was created.
   Although if you cancel within 24 hours, it was reported that someone called and got an ETC instead of a Travel Bank refund.

I just realized that I funded Travel bank from United without selecting United as my airline got credit . Shoot. Did I mess up? Shud I choose it now or what?

Did anyone ever answer this? Or have an answer to this? I mistakenly made the travel bank purchases for my amex biz platinum before enrollment. Purchases on dec 21st and enrollment today on dec 25th. Is there any hope? Will United let me refund and recharge?

You try to ask Amex to manually refund you

I did that once but right after the purchase I quickly enrolled in united and i got credited by amex. Could be it only worked because it was the same day Not sure if it will work if its a few days apart
