    Have read that Amex has stopped refunding these? Can anyone corroborate?

    It's not that Amex stopped refunding these, but rather, AA is coding them differently - specifying that it's a gift card (which is not reimbursable under Amex's terms) instead of Misc/Tax (which IS reimbursable)

    If this is indeed the case - it was great while it lasted, but cant really complain about since it was technically a loophole.
