BeFrugal is offering 2.2% on American Express Gift Cards. They say the deal expires soon but most likely it will be available today only or maybe tomorrow. This is almost the highest payout for American Express gift cards. Top Cash Back usually offers 2.25% when they run a deal.
BeFrugal is a shopping portal that pays you a percentage when you go through them before making an online purchase. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up with my referral link to get $5 (I get $10 after you earn $25).
Don’t use a Promo Code, it will cancel out the 2.2% cash back. Also any denominations over $2000 will not earn cash back. Buy as many as you can (and are able to offload in timely manner) since you have to pay shipping, which is $8.95 regardless of how many cards you buy.
Don’t use your Citi cards, they usually will get processed as cash advances.
Remember that these cards are processed as credit so they’re e bit more troubling to unload. Look up Plastiq (pomortional 1.99% bill pay fee) as an unloading option as well. Not the most profitable way, but it can be done from the comfort of your home. (I haven’t posted about it yet)
