2% + on American Express Gift Cards from BigCrumbs – TODAY ONLY

Last month was a long dry spell with no portals paying out any cash-back on American Express gift cards. Since the beginning of October they have been back on portals and I know many of you have gotten back in at the current 1.5% rates going on many of the portals including Topcashback and BeFrugal.

However, I also know several of you have been holding out for higher payouts and for today only you can get bit higher of a payout. Through the end of the day, BigCrumbs is offering a rate of 2% cash back on American Express gift cards.

2 percent back from big crumbs on american express gift cards

BigCrumbs also offers a small percentage back for the person who refers you to BigCrumbs as well as the person who referred as well! So let’s say person A refers person B and then person B refers person C. Then person C goes and buys Amex gift cards via BigCrumbs they will earn 2% back but person A & person B will also receive a payout as well. In this case the referral is worth 0.175% to both person A & B.

So, will you be buying at 2% or you still holding out for higher? I personally am in anytime the payout is 1.5% or higher as it is pretty easy for me to liquidate the cards for 1.5% or less making the miles/points free or even a small profit. If you do not have a BigCrumbs account you can use my referral link and we will both come out ahead 🙂

Things you should know about buying Amex gift cards:

  • American Express is infamous for declining gift card purchases if the info you enter does not match your credit card 100%. Literally I have had orders denied because I listed a different email address in my order than what I had on my credit card so make sure every piece of information matches.
  • Purchase limit is $5,000 per person within a 14 day rolling period for personal gift cards.
  • Business gift cards have a larger maximum of $75,000.
  • If your order is denied they will still count it towards your $5,000 total limit! This is absolutely asinine but unfortunately it is true.
  • Citibank is known to consider gift card purchases as a cash advance. DO NOT USE A CITI CARD!
  • Take advantage of the 3 month free trial Amex offers for unlimited next day shipping to save money!
  • You cannot set a PIN for Amex gift cards so you will have to liquidate them by making purchases.
