2% Back on Amex Gift Cards Through the Ebates App Today Only

ebates amex gift cards july 2015

Ebates has temporarily increased the payout rate for American Express gift cards to 2% through their mobile app. This increased payout appears to work for both business and personal American Express gift cards and is good for today only.

If you don’t already have a Ebates account, you can find a signup link for Ebates and many other cool things here.

Not Working on All Devices

Unfortunately the link from the app doesn’t appear to work from all devices. Some devices will show a message stating that “Mobile purchases do not track”. This has been a known issue before and I am not aware of any fix. If you do get a “does not track” message, then your device is not eligible to purchase the cards through the app.


  • Do not use a promo code to reduce gift card fees or for free shipping since that will invalidate your cash back (the Premium Shipping Plan is fine, though).
  • Do not buy denominations higher than $2,000 (see: $2K denomination limit on Amex gift card cash back)

Anyone have success/issues with buying through topcashback and matching ebates? I have successfully match others but haven’t tried matching ebates before.


That is how I always do these ebates. Then you don’t have to worry about them changing the payout mid-day. Topcashback always works for me. I just reference this page as my url and get paid out everytime. Matching the app is nice because it works for both personal and business.

Bought 2 x $2000 around 4 EST and just went back to buy more and the 2.0% is gone and replaced by 1.0%.


Some body know when it will come back?
I Try after 5:00 Pm and this deal is not more. Only 1%
