Ticket Refund and Repurchase

TGBann
New Arrival

Hello all,

I purchased a “Wanna Get Away” fare and now have enough credits to pay for the ticket with points (also the fare dropped making this possible). 
My question: if I upgrade the ticket to “Anytime” can I request a refund to the original form of payment and repurchase with my points?
Thank you in advance for your time and knowledge.

Nope, doesn't work like that. Since the original purchase was WGA any refund would be as travel credit.

The part you paid to upgrade may be refundable, but the original amount stays as travel credit.

 

...but don't let that stop you, travel funds now don't expire so if you have any chance to use the travel funds later go ahead and cancel and use up those points.
