I want to purchase a ticket for my mother, to lock in a price now, but want to be able to request a refund(back to me) if i need to cancel. How do i do that?

Purchase Business Select or Anytime fares (refundable fares). Do not purchase Wanna Get Away fare (non-refundable). If you do cancel MAKE SURE you request funds back to the original form of payment OTHERWISE, your mom will get travel funds and you will never see your refund.

The other way is via a RR points ticket.
