I'm pretty sure the united GC can't pay for luggage or award ticket fees.

450 fee posted Nov 7.
Till when do I have to close for fee to be fully refunded?
Also, will pending return protection and/or airline fee reimbursement be lost if I close card before credit posts?

TIA!

60 days to get refunded. After that it is prorated.

It seems if you have other Amex cards, you can still have protection.

What is the question?
Sorry for not being clear. I spent $200 on Friday on United Airlines Registry. Usually takes a couple of days for the Plat 200 credit to hit. My question is if I close the card before the credit posts, will it still post?

Are you that close to the 60 days? Call and see if they can manually post it today if you are at 60.

Fee hit Nov. 7. Not sure if they go till Jan 7th or maybe I lose a day since december has 31 days.

Won't calling increase the risk that they'll pay more attention to the actual charge and/or grill me about it's nature, making it ineligible?

Seems like you got 2x$100 vouchers. Nothing wrong with that and i do not think they would see what the actual charge was.
