Amex business gift cards 2.25% cash back, today only

The cash back portal, TopCashBack, has increased cash back rates for American Express business gift cards to 2.25% for today only (3/6/2015). The next best rate is 1.5%.


Update: A reader has written in to warn that he was charged a cash advance fee when purchasing Amex gift cards with his Barclay’s US Airways Mastercard. We only have one data point, but please use caution.

If you don’t already have a TopCashBack account, you can find a signup link for TopCashBack and many other cool things here.


  • Do not use a promo code to reduce gift card fees or for free shipping since that will invalidate your cash back (the Premium Shipping Plan is fine, though).
  • Do not buy denominations higher than $2,000 (see: $2K denomination limit on Amex gift card cash back)
  • Do not pay with Citibank credit cards since they sometimes charge cash advance fees.

  1. I dont have a business. Is it ok if I use my SSN for TIN to buy Amex giftcards? Will I receive 1099 from Amex?

  2. Greg,
    Do you have any thoughts on the recent reports that Arrival and a few other have been coded as CA?

    Just bought some back on 2/27 that invoiced on 3/5 that went through as a purchase but not sure if something has changed since then. Seems like it has to do with 3/2/2015. Glicth?
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Long time reader, first time post. How does one personalize the business version of the gift card? I am only seeing personalize option under personal cards.

    • Use the ‘Customized message’ option. Ignore the first line message (as that is preconfigured for ‘happy birthday’ types etc.) . For second line use your name. It will arrive looking just like a personalized card.

  4. Did anyone get approved for the business cards on 3/6/15 and not get credit on through topcashback? I also ordered the trial version of the $99 a year shipping. That might be the issue.
