A number of portals currently show rewards for purchasing gift cards from Sears through 12/22/16. This is a big deal for those who want to maximize the current Sears Amex Offer (Spend $50, Get $10 Back). Keep in mind the following:
- By-mail gift cards are issued by Kmart and will not trigger the Amex offer.
- Most, if not all, e-gift cards (such as the the blue Sears gift card) are issued by Sears and will trigger the Amex offer.
- Gift card reloads will trigger the Amex offer, but we don’t know if reloads are included in this portal promotion.
Which portals are included?
My guess is that this is available through all portals, but only a few have listed the promotion. If you try others and earn rewards please let us know. I could not find any mileage portals that show the promotion (I check United, Alaska, Southwest, and Virgin America so far).
Here are the portals I found that do list the promotion:
|Name / Link||Offer||Frequent Miler Notes|
|EBates||You'll earn $10, and I'll get a $5 bonus when you make your first purchase of $25 or more. I may earn additional bonuses when EBates runs special refer-a-friend promotions||This is a well-established and reliable cash back portal.|
|ShopAtHome||You will earn a $5 bonus once you make $20 in purchases within a month (I’m not sure if I’ll earn a bonus – it may depend upon whether or not ShopAtHome is running a tell-a-friend promo.||I've had good luck with this portal, but I don't like that they have a $20 minimum payout.|
|TopCashBack||Bonus rates vary. In general you and I will get either $5 or $10 after your first purchase of $20 or more through the portal||Despite many problems several years ago, my experience with TopCashBack has been very solid.|
