Only on the purchase fee:

“Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Only eligible on purchase of American Express Gift Cards and American Express Business Gift Cards. Offer is only valid on the purchase fee. Shipping fees will apply.”

Does not look stackable with the fee waiver. Website seems hard coded against it.

Interesting. Unlike TopCashBack, though, it does allow the purchase of $3K cards, so your fees as a % of total can be extremely low

Really? It seems to be capping me at 500, although I do not have DL status.

Interesting. If I click through from the SkyMiles promo email I received, I can see cards up to $3000. If I click through the link I provided above, I only see $500. I’ll try to find a better link…

OK, found a way. I’ll update the post momentarily.

Just login to your AMEX account once you hit the landing page and the cap will disappear…

Ooh, great tip! Thanks HikerT

If you go through the link, you need to select “Consumer Gift Cards” and then “Personalized Cards”.

It will take you to a page where you can add 3K and 2K cards.

Thanks. I found a way to get the non-personalized cards at up to 3K as well. See updated post.

Is it possible to buy AMEX gift cards through the AAdvantage eShopping portal? I was looking for how to do that last night, couldn’t find it.

I don’t think so

UA is offering the same 3miles/$ now.

Same here, don’t see it at the UA portal.

“Offer is only valid on the purchase fee”…I read that to mean the 3miles/$ will be on the 3.95 Purchase Charge and not the $500 value of the card…are we sure about this???

Great question. With cash back sites, the cash back % is always on the total amount not just the fee so my assumption is that that holds true here as well, but I can’t promise that.

btw, unrelated but please read (and then delete as you see fit)…I am assuming you stopped reading comments on your infamous “Any volunteers?” post…but please go check my comment (#77 BTJ – I was late to the party due to being on the road)…100% on your side, my comments also included a genuine, sincere offer…to contribute (perhaps in a different way than you had asked) – email me as I’m hoping we can start a dialogue…I have some concrete ideas that might of interest – no harm in exploring a bit…Either way – thanks for what you do. Cheers, Brian (email address was provided on the comment – #77 from the Any Volunteers)…let me know if you need/want my email. If not, no worries…keep on keeping on:-)

Good news, my skypesos just posted from a test order earlier this week. 3x miles were earned on purchase amount (not the fees).
