Valid today only (10/20/2014):

Big Crumbs is offering 2% cash back when clicking through their portal to order American Express gift cards.


Up to 2.35%

BigCrumbs offers a two-deep referral program.  The person who referred you earns a small amount of cash back each time you earn cash back; and the person who referred that person also receives that amount.  So, with this current offer, not only will you earn 2% cash back, but the person who’s link you used to signup will earn 0.175% and the person they signed up from will also earn that amount.  If all of the people in that chain happen to be in the same family, then one family can earn 2.35% cash back today!

Any one been able to get vgc with these at the drug store lately?


Do you think it might be possible to load your target prepaid redcard with these? Since you can load credit careds, seems like it might be possible.

Commenting to subscribe to comments. I want to know about liquidation. And when people think 3% is coming back…


I dunno about everyone else, but something’s broke.
when I go through the process, it says
“The order limit for Gift Cards cannot exceed $0.”
so I can’t buy anything.


fair warning, they found out that my referral came from my wife and they caught it and shut it down. They were kind enought to let me choose which one to shut but they did catch it.


This is all well and good, but how do you liquidate these generally now that Amazon Payments is gone, Bluebird doesn’t work with AGCs and most stores won’t let you buy VGCs with an AGCs in my experience?


You can just spend them at a store or online like a Vanilla Gift Card.
I have used them recently, to purchase some VGCs at gas stations.


Does anyone know whether using Discover to pay for Amex gift cards thru BC will count as an online purchase for quarterly 5% cash back?


I bought an Amex gift card thru BC on 10/22 for the first time using my Discover card, hoping to get the 5% cash back. By checking my “recent activity” on the Discover card website, I see that the purchase has gone through with description as “AMEX GIFT CARDS 801-945-7919 UT” and the category is “Services”. I can’t tell if I got any rewards points yet. I think I have to wait for my next billing statement to see if I got any rewards. I did this purchase because I thought someone else said they had successfully used the 5% cashback for online Discover purchases for giftcards at Big Crumbs. So when my statement is available, I will check and report back.


I got a 2.2% cash back which is weird but I am not complaining 🙂
