Today Only: 2% Rebate on American Express Gift Cards

BigCrumbs is offering is offering 2% cash back on American Express Gift Cards today only.

That’s not the biggest bonus offered, but shopping portals have been removing Amex gift cards from their rebate offerings so this is the best we’ve had and my guess probably the best we’ll see. (TopCashBack still has them – at 1.5%.)

Keep your personal orders under $5000 every two weeks to avoid the hassle of order cancellation, or scale it if you have a tax ID and make American Express for business orders.

Citi cards code these purchases as cash advances, so you pay for the privileges and don’t earn points. Don’t use a Citibank credit card to buy American Express gift cards.
