How much are the ‘fees’ to buy these gift cards? And don’t CC companies frown on such gift card purchases, especially for newly opened CC?


Unless I’m trying to meet minimum spend on a card, I wait for better offers, like a $20 Visa card. $6.95 fee per $200 card. With a 5 X card, you can still do OK. $15 Staples card isn’t as exciting. If you try to charge your whole credit limit, yes, they might frown. Be wise.
