Referral and referral warning

If you haven’t yet registered for Simply Best Coupons, you’ll find a signup link here (along with many other useful links). If you use my link, you’ll get a $5 bonus when you register and I’ll earn a 5% referral bonus each time you earn rewards from this portal, up to a maximum of $50.

Note this warning from the Simply Best Coupons email:

Please note: creating multiple accounts/identities and self-referring in order to get an extra bonus for own orders will get your account blocked and cashback forfeited. Why risk it?


  • 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)

  1. Greg check out new amex fees on prepaid cards
    Our fees are changing:

    • New Monthly Fee: Beginning October 15, 2015, we will charge a monthly fee of $4.95 on the balance of each Card associated with your American Express® Prepaid Card Account. If you are a resident of Arkansas, New York, Texas, or Vermont, you will not be charged this monthly fee.
    • New ATM Transaction Fee: Beginning November 15, 2015, we will charge $2.50 per ATM withdrawal. ATM owners/operators may charge their own fees for ATM transactions.
    • Discontinuation of first ATM fee waiver: Beginning November 15, 2015, American Express will no longer waive the first ATM fee of the month.

    • To what cards does the above comment refer? Serve? Gift Cards? Is this true? Can someone here please elaborate on this? It seems far too cryptic to me at least.

      • This refers to the old Amex Prepaid Reloadable cards. It doesn’t apply to these gift cards or the Serve/Bluebird cards.

        • Ok, thanks! Had me a bit of a worry there. Greatly appreciate the fast reply and all the great info you are bringing out. I am a N00b but am learning fast thanks to a lot of your columns and fact sheets!
