Here we are in "Happy New Year 2021" and thus ready to use/redeem the airline fee credits associated with certain credit card's where the counter reset's at the end of calendar year. Lot of American Express premium credit card's as well as few other cards (Expedia Voyager, BofA Premium Rewards) have their "airline fee credit" counter reset on 01/01.
American Express describes these airline fee credits which comes as part of Amex Gold and other premium cards as incidentals for reimbursing fees such as baggage, seat upgrade etc. But based on what gets reimbursed there are certain charges which although not exactly incidentals still work for reimbursement. For American Express you need to select One airline of the Major U.S. Carriers for given calendar year before you make the charge for incidental (which can be done online). There are certain purchases with United Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines which still get reimburse as of this writing, but what works today may not be working today and your best resource is this flyertalk thread for Southwest. Other airlines flyertalk thread can be found on that page!
Here are the amounts of airlines incidentals for few of the popular cards per calendar year:
So, get going on these use/re-imbursement's for something other than the actual airline incidentals if you have any of the above card's in your wallet.
