Will these portals give bonus points for the purchase of gift cards?

Staples.com T&C say not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or similar cash equivalents including third party gift cards.

What about AAdvantage Portal? Do they give bonus points for the purchase of gift cards?
any data points?

The AAdvantage portal is run by Cartera. Some people have reported in the past that they have received miles for purchasing merchant gift cards from Cartera portals, but I don’t have any recent data points. Visa gift cards definitely do not earn miles.

Almost same Q as above
If I buy Non-Visa GCs from Staples.com thru SW portal, will that result in SW points?
Will Staples process the GCs directly or through Cash Star? I am asking about Ink 5X.

Third party merchant gift cards are processed through Staples and should earn 5X with Ink.

As for the portal, according to their terms purchasing gift cards of any kind does not earn points.

I bought third-party merchant gift cards from Staples.com through the Southwest portal on 3/6 and no points have posted thus far. Typically, points through the Southwest portal have taken about 4-5 days to post although technically it says it can take up to 6–8 weeks. I personally would not use the Southwest portal to buy gift cards again. Will update if my points ever end up posting.

Thanks Daniel. I was hoping buy some everyday used cards like Shell, Sears etc from the portal using my Ink Bold so that I can get 11X. Looks like no go.

Just as another data point, I did receive points through the Southwest portal on gift cards purchased on 12/23. The points posted 12/26. Maybe they have updated their system since then.

These count toward companion pass, right?

Yes points earned through the portal do count towards the companion pass.

I pulled the trigger and got some Visa’s from Staples thru SW portal via Ink, will try to remember to update you somehow in a couple weeks if the points post for the portal, I’m doubtful, but worth a shot, needed some anyway, been slacking in my MS game 😐
