Has anyone cancelled a velocity redemption flight lately. If so, how long did it take to get your points placed back into your account. Advised 21 days, been 14. A friend had theirs back within an hour which they are sliver. Platinum member for 3 1/2 years. Called back 3 times with 3 different responses. First response- sometimes that happens, second response - they paid with Amex and you didn't, Amex is within 5 days, visa mastercard 21 days, third response today - doesn't matter which card you pay with, it's 21 days. Your friend shouldn't have recieved them that fast. Nothing we can do. We will have to go through our phone records and speak to the representative who did that... 🙄 My God...

4 weeks into waiting I called and up and they reimbursed me immediately. Can be done with auth from a supervisor apparently.

Points refunded in less than 24hours, advised that refunding the taxes 'is done by a different team' and would take up to 21 business days, but only ended taking 6 days.

I had one cancelled in August, went ok. Money refund came as noted about 4 weeks later, the points didn’t come and after 6 weeks I enquired, and they said “they have already been re-credited” and indeed they were suddenly there.
Seems like not too much trouble with it, but from responses here either part can get stuck and then just enquire (I sent it directly to the Platinum email address).

Canceled reward seat that the base and tax were paid with points so I can’t comments on the dollar return. The points were back within an hour.
