WE’VE BEEN AMBUSHED, FALL BACK!!!
American Airlines Gift Cards Are In Fact Dead
Hold all your American Airlines Gift Card purchases! I’m saddened to report that whatever was coding the AA gift cards as Misc Fees was short-lived and reverted to a Gift Certificate code. My data point is screenshotted here.
It seems the online forums were taken to the cleaners as well. Here are two screenshots from FlyerTalk tonight, showing their comfort with the data points was enough to update their main post and the most recent comments on the post. It looks like we have to sit back and wait for all of this to settle out. Reminder: if you’ve already selected an airline for your benefit and now wish to change to a different airline, all it takes is a chat convo with Amex (and having not used any of your benefit thus far).
