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)
