What ways do you suggest on liquidating them? Thanks!

Buy a Visa GC with it for $4.95 fee. Oh wait, you can go straight to that step, and skip the AmEx nonsense.

Thanks very much. No ID required at checkout for $250. ID required at $300 so $250 is probably the limit for no ID which might be useful if you’re going to hit this hard in a short time. No issues using credit card to buy them in N. Cal today.

Does it matter whether they Id you? I said $250 they I’d-ed me and I had to put my store rewards card number in. But they let the purchase go through, so not sure whether it matters that they asked for ID? Should I have changed it to$500 since they id-ed me?

good way to use plastiq to pay your mortgage or daycare bills, or anything of that nature. also a great way to use your Amex Blue Card (old version) that gives you 5% back on those purchases.

I went to Walgreens in San Francisco and they didn’t know anything about this offer.

I thought gift cards were exlcuded from the 5x bonus category unless it’s a gift card for a department store that is already included in this Q4 bonus category. Can anyone confirm that the AMEX gift cards actually earn 5x points when purchased with your Freedom card at a CVS or Walgreens?

Jesus you’re an idiot. Department stores like Walgreens don’t show that you bought a specific item.

Yes it is 5x.
