Does duty free purchases on UA count for credit? I see food purchase does, so what difference does it make with the duty free? I think they use the same machine, no?

The machine codes differently on each purchase. However doesn't mean it wont work. IIRC amex explicitly says in the T&C it will not trigger

GC + CC triggers
Does this work if booking multiple passengers on a single reservation?
ETA: I only received the credit for one passenger

I can try, but it's clear that it's not an incidental charge.
