If I booked a basic Southwest fare besides for the Early Bird Check in, is their any other services I can pay for using my Amex and get a refund?

Second Q: If I booked a United Basic Economy ticket anyway I can use my Amex to upgrade my flight experience?
I don’t think you can upgrade Basic Economy.

Do you mean use your travel credit to pay to switch seats?

I purchased two $100 AA eGCs within the same transaction but the charge posted as 1 $200 charge. Will I still get the airline credit?

Yes it’s worked for me on both United and Southwest. It also worked paying for flight change fees.

I do think paying with the sapphire reserved at 3 points per dollar and trip interruption/cancelation insurance included is probably worth giving up 2 ppd

Interesting...
I booked 5 tickets in econ with LOT on amex travel with cash, and on the confirmation email it says "congratulations, this flight qualified to receive a 35% airline bonus" (but i didn't book with points) so i called amex and they told me that yes indeed it does qualify but since it was a cash ticket i have to wait 48h and call back to switch it to points so i can get 35% back.
Anyone had anything similar?
And is it worth switching to a points ticket and taking the risk that they might not honor it because there is no reason they should.

If they don't honor you can always switch back to cash
