It doesn't have to be a GC, credits should work as well. The point is to trigger an extra collection fee, so you charge a few dollars to a GC or Credit and then the $200 to your card.
Thanks. So wouldn't work to just charge entire cost of ticket to card and then cancel?

No, the amex travel fee does not reimburse direct travel costs only additional collections.

Got it. Thanks for the explanation! Should it be a refundable or non refundable ticket?

I did main non-refundable, you just have to make sure when you cancel it can go to credit and doesn't refund to card

Any reason the united tb would not work on the temporary card number more than the actual card? Don't think the card will come on time.
