The only thing keeping me from ordering is if certain liquidation methods will still be available to us tomorrow in the new year. I think I might sit this one out.

I use Google Wallet for liquidation. Yes it nullifies the cashback but earn miles.

Since these deals are more frequent, I wonder if any one has subscribed to Premium shipping option of Amex ($99/year) to minimize shipping cost overtime.

@Niraj – There’s a busy FT thread on Amex GCs and plenty of them paid for the free shipping option. But, there was a free ship option over the summer that a lot of people took advantage of, myself included.

The notice I got from TopCashBack said the sale was for 24 hours ending 9AM EST.

Isn’t it valid through 9 am EST on 1/1/15??

Will payment using Amex credit card count towards minimum spending requirement, since Amex knows that you are purchasing GC?

Jack

Is it applicable to buy personalized gift card with name on it? Or only applicable to the regular personal gift card?

KP

Does any one know if we still get cash bach if if any one has subscribed to Premium shipping option of Amex ($99/year)? I know that using promotion codes nullifies it, I am curious if Amex Premium Shipping option also has same effect.

Oops, my comment #10 should have been a reply to your question – premium shipping does not disqualify cash back.

Dennis

Premium shipping does not disqualify cash back, have used it many times.

Will personalized gift card with name disqualify cash back?

Jayson

Answer to #11 is no

Hi, Jayson, Thank you. So that means I can use personalized gift card to get cash back also, am I right?

KP

Yes I have ordered personalized Cards and my CB so far hasn’t been reversed (usually they reverse in couple of days itself if its not eligible), its been a week since I ordered and I will get my cards on Friday, so its little slow in processing but its really nice to avoid those shaky cashiers.

I happened to click your link to check out “other cool stuff” and noticed Plink! wow, that seems ages ago…
Anyway, Happy New Year, and thanks for writing the best miles/points/giftcard/etc blog out there.

Trying to piece this out from the FT forums, too, but can’t find a clear answer.

Looks like if you use a promo code that waives the fee, you don’t get the CB, but what about if you use a promo code for the shipping? Still CB or no?

As Dennis answered my question I have started using Premium shipping. Its gives $99/year for a full year of shipping. If you are regularly going to order, its worth than taking risk of “clawed” cash back by using promo codes of anykind.

To be specific to your question, Be Frugal had reversed my cash back for using free shipping promo too, so I am sure its not worth a risk, believe me, it hurts to see those $75 gone away.
