Tried it with a cheap ticket and it worked. Got the Amex credit. United gave an electronic voucher. Didn't try yet combining the vouchers
worked automatically?
how much was ticket? was it an exact dollar amount or with cents/change?

It was a very cheap ticket (less than $20). Just did it for fun to try it out. Waited 2 days till Amex credited the money back as an airline fee, then I hit the cancel button on my United reservation. Within minutes the voucher was in my United account

does anyone know (sorry if discussed earlier..) if I used this last year but then had to refund the charges that I got the airline credit for - does amex then claw back the credit?
They will claw it back at some point, even years later. You’ll get a bill in the mail >:( >:(

All the DP I saw, they only clawed back if the card was closed within the membership year.

I bought last week another United ticket ~$85, and this time it was not credited back from Amex as a airline expense. Don't know why 3 weeks ago it worked for a $20 ticket, and this time for a $85 ticket did not work....

Problem is I already paid for what I needed, and did not get reimbursed. Next time I have to do it without being pressed for time.

My credit came through for my United travelbank promotional purchase. I hope United opens the travelbank up soon for further purchases. This would be the most convenient way to use Amex credits for those of us who don't intend to fly for awhile.

Will a JetBlue $65 ticket work? Also, if buying 4 tickets on one PNR, for a total of just over $250, will it still work considering total price is over $100?
