If it works with Southwest, it should work with other airlines too.

Depends, Pessin.

1) Some airlines don't even seem to sell GC's at their website.

2) You have to make sure the GC is actually sold by the airline and charged to AMEX by the airline and not a 3rd party like cashstar

3) the Southwest GC is an EGC, no fees to ship (another issue) and appears to be sold by them.

4) the only other reason it may not work is, typically "airline tickets" show the passenger name/date, etc on an Amex statement (probably for flight ins. purposes, since many cards offer it free). The GC's may come through as a different coded charge and not trigger the offer.  That's why I put at your own risk. cause I can't confirm this.

Someone on sd contacted an Am Ex rep and the rep said buying a gift card should not be a problem. He went ahead and bought one yesterday, so we will see in the next few days if he gets the $50 credit or not. If ti works it would be 16.67% off a $300 gift card plus any loyalty points your Am Ex card offers. Since the gift cards never expire you could put them away until one day you needed to fly somewhere.

Typically, the e-mails that you've used the offer hit pretty quickly. Please keep us posted Mr. V. 

The other plus with a gift card is, you spend it down as you choose. Can use it on 2 x $150 fares at different times, versus the ticket option which must be $300+ at charge time.
