You can earn 5X points or 5% cash back on your purchase with the following cards:
The cards sold at OfficeMax can be loaded onto your AMEX Serve or Bluebird account at Walmart! Some folks are reporting that this deal isn’t advertised at their local store. but with a little persistence they were able to get the cashier to find the code in the back room!
5. 2.25% Cash Back on AMEX Business Gift Cards (Today Only!)
Frequent Miler also writes you can save 2.25% on AMEX Business gift cards with TopCashBack. But this deal is for today only!
This may be another useful way to meet the minimum spending on credit cards. Remember, NOT to use a Citi card, because they often charge cash advance fees on gift cards purchased from American Express.
However, cards from the following banks should work:
- Bank of America
- Capital One
- US Bank
That said, some banks like Discover and US Bank will decline the charge if it exceeds your cash advance limit. That’s because the authorization is marked as a cash advance, but it will NOT post as a cash advance. But if your cash advance limit is set to $1, you’ll need to raise it for your transaction to go through.
