@Dan says here that Southwest $109 tickets are reimbursed, but I am looking for more current DP to confirm this.

I was talking about the SW credit.
Use your non-transferable credit to purchase a flight that is transferable (wanna get away +). Then cancel the flight. There is a DD post about it.
If you are using your Amex credit just book a wanna get way + to begin with.

FYI - My annual airline credit is for UA and today they told me that my charge for $100 a few days ago (for UA Travel Bank) is coded as a "Special Service Ticket " and will NOT be covered by this card benefit.

Did you try it? Next time, just ask here and do it. A rep is not reliable and is anyways the person you should *not* ask.

If Iím buying a $199 jetblue ticket using $100 JetBlue TB will the remainder $99 technically trigger the amex credit?
