3. Get reimbursement of skill (unofficial version)

If you really need to be spending so much money in the air, then used official expense categories that are defined above claims to be the most secure.However, if you're not so much demand for reimbursement, what about how to get all the claims?General domestic and foreign users and summarizes some of the unofficial method to obtain reimbursement from AMEX.Of course, flawed mainly because AMEX is the shopping code by air classification to automatically categorize your spending, so you buy something clearly not included in the official list, is also likely to receive reimbursement, which effect is the same for Platinum and gold cards.If you want to take a private method to obtain reimbursement, two things are important to remember:

  • Do not call AMEX to ask related unofficial means is not reimbursed, or when their claims received
  • Private methods may be unstable, could claim continued attention to this article, please update

3.1 use MileagePlus x

In the previous article "detailed MileagePlus x", we introduced the use of this APP.Shopping in this APP also count as reimbursable by AMEX consumer.So, it is very easy for us to achieve the purpose of the reimbursement of air through the APP.Here are the basic steps, and if you don't know this APP, you can see detailed MileagePlus x

3.2 purchase airline gift card

Airlines, though clear in official list of AMEX gift cards will not be reimbursed, however, since it is a system to automatically identify, if AMEX does not correctly identify that you are buying a gift card or airline fees, then you still can get reimbursed.Now you can purchase a gift card for the reimbursement of airline:

  • UA Gift Gift Registry (official link): equivalent to create a Gift you give yourself, then use white gold/gold filled money.This money can be used to pay the UA website after tickets.GC buy UA may not trigger reimbursement mechanism of attention!
  • AA Gift Card (Flyertalk building)
  • Delta Gift Card (Flyertalk building)

3.3 opening twice within the first anniversary of reimbursement

As the AMEX airline reimbursement is calculated on a calendar year (January-December, that adds a calendar year), will be reimbursed once each year.So, if you are in a year (in March) approved the AMEX Gold/Platinum, you can be reimbursed immediately, access $200/$100.Later, before March 2, you can also claim it again, won the $200/$100, get the air after claims, you can select the level.So, when you open the card rewards, get an additional $400/$200, thought AMEX is so kind yet?

4. Matters needing attention

  • If you use the official reimbursement method is not received within the allotted time, then consult your AMEX customer service, if you are using an unofficial way, please wait, believe his character, is concerned about the major forum blog has the latest news.
  • Choose unofficial ways to get reimbursement, depending on what you have in these places of consumption, if you're always Amazon, Sephora shopping, use the MPX is the most convenient, and purchase gift cards at the same time, but also gets a certain number of UA
  • Unofficial may change at any time, before deciding which way to take concern the article updates or major forum blog
