To receive the American Express airline credit, you must select an airline to use it with between January 1st and 31st each year. If you don’t select a new airline, you’ll receive the airline credit for whichever airline you’d previously selected. Once you’ve selected the airline you’d like the credit to apply to, American Express will automatically apply the credit to any fees you’re charged by that airline.
Covered charges include fees for baggage, bringing pets, choosing your seat beforehand, and in-flight purchases. The airline credit does not apply to airfare, gift cards, insurance, or transferring points. Credits don’t carry over from one year to the next, either.
