Does anyone know how strict they are at catching gift cards? EG amazon? This could be a very opportune time to redeem the Amex travel credit


In the past I have earned these bonuses by buying 3rd party gift cards on eBay (via Paypal Digital Gifts, SVM, etc.).

I would speculate that any GC purchase that earns regular MileagePlus shopping portal bonuses (e.g. the typical 1-2 miles per dollar) will trigger this bonus too.


btw – their Ts & Cs always say “no gift cards,” so no indication they’re being more strict than in the past.
