Here is a screenshot. I had the credit before posted Jan 2 and it just disappeared after chatting with them to downgrade my card.
Are you sure that's not a refund by JetBlue that's on that screen shot?
It should say "Amex Airline Reimbursement Benefit".

That is. OP said that he had the travel credit posted to his account, but now it disappeared. (The screenshot is after it disappeared)

It is a refund from JB. The screenshot was to show that the amex credit is NOT there anymore.

I don't think a credit reversal would just disappear, you would see the credit and a separate transaction as a reversal.

It'll work and then you'll get 200 back.

I don't remember this from previous years but does Comfort + work? I thought I remembered someone saying it's a different fare class so wouldn't work

Didn't work for me but I believe others said it did.

Bought 3 Delta gc's 1x $100 and 2x $50. Got 2 $50 credit, but nothing for $100 yet. Worth calling about it?
