2 weeks ago when I tried chatting they said it wasn't eligible. Could be DROCR, but its very possible that it changed back now

Anyone had any luck with buying a fully refundable flight, upgrading seats, getting airline credit from Amex and then refunding the flight, this year?

In order to get back 50% on a business class ticket. Do I have to book on travel.amex.com or can I book with a travel agent?

I had 2 tax & fee charges, didn't get credited,
I called and the rep said it's eligible and I'll be credited before my due date, I didn't get credited,
so I chated and the rep asked me for more info about my charge because
 "he has to select charge type"!?
so I asked what are the options? he said "ticket upgrade, luggage fee or lounge entry"? I said they were both upgrade fees... ;)
he told me I'll be credited within 5 bussines days...
(I tryed complaining that it's after my due date... but no courtessy luck... ;))

so maybe mpx can also work if you tell them it was an upgrade fee?

Yes with biz plat on 1/1. But recently with Delta Platinum (any delta purchase to trigger the $100 credit), the upgrade didn't post to my account - the charge just fell off. Been doing pggm for years and that never happened to me. Thought it was a fluke but same thing happened to yuguy. Tried again a couple days ago, still pending, will report back.
