United Airline offer me $75 Electronic Travel Certificate for some defect on my seat during my last flight.
I have lots of UA miles, so I usually only book reward flight.
For example, it cost 35000 miles + $5.6 tax to fly to China. 
There is $75 catch up fee if you book the ticket in 21 days before flight.

I wonder whether the $75 Electronic Travel Certificate can be used to pay the tax and catch up fee of reward flight ticket?
Thank you very much!

United ETCs cannotbe used for fees & taxes on award travels.
You can use ETCs on travels beyond the expiration date, as long as the booking is made prior to the expiration date.
