Not sure if there is already a separate thread for this, but is the $250 Hilton Aspire airline credit subject to the same limitations as the biz plat now, or are $100 gc's still working for that?

Are there any data points for 2020 that buying a SW flight under $100 triggers the credit?

And you can cancel the flight and still keep the credit?

If refunded to the original payment, it might claw back.

Is there a way to get it refunded as a gc or travel credit?

It can take months. There are definitely reports of clawbacks for this.

Will Amex credit work if I use a $10 Delta gift card and Platinum for the rest, assuming it's >$100. Consensus seems to be for <$100 it works but I can't find any DP's for over that amount.

Thanks. Does anyone know if there are any dps in regards to claw-backs for downgrading (not canceling) a card after utilizing the travel credit for that year (after the first year)?
