Just yesterday, I ordered American Express gift cards through Topcashback.com (not a referral link) when the rebate was 2%. Today, it looks like they have increased the rebate to 3%. Wish I would have waited another day. I put the purchase on my Southwest Airlines Visa card in an attempt to earn the companion pass. I hope to hopefully cash these out with vanilla reloads and bluebird and the 2% will help offset the fees.
I’ve had pretty good success with Topcashback. All my transactions through them have posted appropriately.
I purchased $3K worth of gift cards yesterday and already see the appropriate rebate pending in my account in just 1 day.
If you read the terms and conditions on the topcashback amex page, you maybe reluctant to order more than $500 worth of gift cards because it says you will only receive cashback on $500 (See image below). Clearly, that’s not the case from my experience.
Also, it says that promotional / voucher codes not posted and approved by Topcashback may effect your eligibility for cashback. I used SYNCGIFT to waive all purchase fees. This was not posted on the Topcashback site but on the Amex site. So, again, the terms and conditions are not strictly enforced. I still had to pay for shipping.
One additional interesting thing I noticed was the Topcashback now allows you to cash in your rebate in the form of an Amazon gift card for an additional 5% cashback bonus… not too bad.
I hope this 3% sticks around in 2 weeks as I will be ordering more gift cards to pay my taxes with. For more on learning about Amex gift cards, check out this stellar post from Frequentmiler.
