Amex gift cards withdrawn from portals

As of early this afternoon (9/2/2014), several portals stopped offering cash back for American Express gift cards.  Now, it looks like they are withdrawing from all portals.  Portal, BigCrumbs, sent the following note to many customers:

American Express Gift Cards just informed us that today will be the last day to purchase their cards until further notice. Their links are dropping off at other cash back sites as we speak. Hurry and shop with BigCrumbs now through midnight tonight Eastern Standard Time to earn the highest cash back available.

There is no word yet on if or when Amex gift cards will return to portals.  BigCrumbs is currently offering 1.5% cash back, plus .25% to the person who referred you, plus .25% to the person who referred them.  If all of those people just happen to be related, you can earn 2% cash back until midnight tonight.

Remember not to use promo codes when ordering.

Just fyi Ebates is still up at a low 1%


I wonder why they removed American Express gift cards from portals, of course it’s impossible to know the answer. This is such a massive letdown.


Extrabux still shows 1%…
