Your BeFrugal link says “Through Dec 31” you will receive Cash back if I sign up using yours. Is that valid or do you want to update. I want to make a purchase today.

$1,000 order placed, let’s see how long it takes AMEX to cancel my order… Thanks for the great find FM!

Hi Grant, why are you assuming they’ll cancel your order?
Also, when I read the fine prints from Befrugal, they state that anything over $2K will not be commissionable. Is this true or can I still buy 3K for commissions?

The way I read that is each GC cannot exceed $2,000 per card, so you can just order multiple $2,000 GCs and be fine. They also mention the 10k personal and 100k business limit in 14 days as well.

I need to meet 10k spend for the Amex BGR card. Will I earn points, will it count toward min spend, and will Amex have a fit or do a FR if I’m buying Amex GCs with my new Amex CC?

Ken, I had the amex BGR and I met all 10K in Amex GCs. This was only 2 months ago.

Ken,
Why have 2×1000?.. why not do just 1 of 2k/3k instead? I made a huge order..now wondering how to cash it back.

@Toadie – Because I have much better luck doing multiple $1,000 cards than 2-3k cards that always seem to get canceled.

Are 2.2%-2.5% the new going rates or just a temporary rate decrease? Having read your “Complete Guide to Amex gift cards”, I see the going rates were more in line 3-4%.

Should I hold out on a better offer or is this as good as it gets now a days, even though your post is not “that” old, Feb 2014.

BTW will topcashback’s Highest Paid Cashback guarantee cover this and similar promotions?

Yes they did match my order. I like Top Cashback better, they pay faster.

Trying to order 1x$3k and 1x$2k personalized cards. Each comes with the std $3.95 fee for each card, but I am also getting charged $9.95 shipping for each card.

How do get around it? It seems when ordering generic cards with no name on it, their is only one shipping fee.

Thanks
