What are JetBlue gift cards?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It works, just you get a clawback, which can take place a while later.
Don't pm me unless you will use my referral link. :P

In that case, it doesn't work. New MS method: Buy 100k worth of stuffs. Returns said stuffs. Make lots of points. Claw back will happen later, don't worry.

Just did. My still stands. It's only a working method if the outcome is what it's supposed to be.

Question was, has anyone gotten lucky, answer was, that won't help because it "works" originally, but you'll get a clawback

Exactly. What is that luck worth if it gets clawed back?
