The exception that I noted in my first reply was a Customer who cancelled his reservation in error. If the cancellation was a mistake on your part, explain that to the representative who answers the phone. If you cancelled the reservation and then changed your mind a few hours later, you will probably have to pay the fare difference to rebook your reservation. For example, one of the cases where it was re-instated was where someone had three similar reservations and canceled the wrong one. We don't need to know the details, it isn't up to us. but let the customer service rep know what happened and maybe they can restore it.

I’m not a traveler and I never traveled before this was gonna be my first time and I would really hate if it goes to credit cause I didn’t plan on traveling anywhere else. After the travel funds expire a year from the original date of purchase you may be able to pay a fee (currently $100) to have the travel credit exchanged for a voucher. If your credit was more than $100, then once you had the voucher anyone could use it in case you have a family member or friend that flies more frequently. Make sure of what the expiration would be for the voucher that someone you know would be able to use it before paying any additional money. Keep an eye on the sales, maybe you'll see a fun opportunity pop up to use all or most of your travel fund credit that you weren't expecting. Depending where you are it could maybe even be used for a day trip to somewhere like Minneapolis where you can take the light rail into town or Mall of America...sight see, and head back to the airport same day. Chicago is obviously a good one in that regard. A few other cities are also setup well to see a few sights and get back to the airport easily.
