Update?
No credit yet. I chatted with their support and they said that the terms require up to 2-4 weeks to receive the credit. It's now been 3 weeks so another week to wait and see.

They're supposed to be opening a Centurion lounge at my home airport, but other than that, I don't know why I would keep this card.

Anyone tried using amex 200 credit to pay the remainder of a United ticket that was partially purchased with gift card or travel bank?
(the work-around that Dan posted for DL, does it work for UA)

If JB flights under $100 are being reimbursed, (correct me if they are not please) can I some how get a refunded flight within 24 hours to go to travel credit and not back to the credit card? Is that a current workaround for using the airline credit and yet getting the equivalent of a gift card?

Does an upgrade from economy to PE on Delta get teh credit? Is it able to be split between two cards?

Update: I booked one of the 53.90 on sale fares from 2 random airports. I missed the 24 hour cut off time due to Batlonus and different time zones... But, I called and asked that they refund me.. First she said no because it was passed 24 hours, when I asked at least for Jetblue Bank. She said that as a courtesy she would provide me that. Three days later my 53.90 flight was reimbursed as Airline Credit. - Platinum Business Card.

Moral: This may be a sort of work around. But I didn't  try out how to cancel within 24 hours and put into my Jetblue Bank.

Would love to hear from someone else of their experience.

I found a few $50+- flights on Southwest, any workaround to get this to work on Southwest?
