BigCrumbs to increase Amex gift card rate on October 20

BigCrumbs (and several other portals) currently offers 1.5% cash back for Amex gift cards purchased through their portal.  On October 20th, for one day only, BigCrumbs is planning to increase the cash back rate.  At this time, the increased rate is not yet known.

Why should you care?  Please see: Everything you ever wanted to know about Amex gift cards.

A friend received the following email from BigCrumbs:


MARK YOUR CALENDARS – October 20th, 2014!

Thanks to the support of our incredibly awesome members, we’ve been able to arrange higher rates with American Express Gift Cards!
