Update: This now seems to be dead. Ebates has added language that purchases don’t track on mobile devices.
Ebates has temporarily increased the payout rate for American Express gift cards to 2% when using their mobile app. This increased payout appears to work for both business and personal American Express gift cards. This is part of Ebates’ Mobile Monday and the 2% rate is good for today only.
If you don’t already have a Ebates account, you can find a signup link for Ebates and many other cool things here.
Not Working on All Devices
Unfortunately the link from the app doesn’t appear to work from all devices. For example, it doesn’t work on an iPhone or an Android phone, however it does work on an iPad. Hopefully Ebates will get fix this soon so that purchases can be made from all devices.
- 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)
