Or don't post it on a public forum.
Post it as it has been years since I used them.  :)

FYI: Good way to get banned by brokerage firms.
I just found a new supply of forks!

No, it's per child. Here's the actual text from the law:
"The amount of cash distributions from all qualified tuition programs described in subsection (b)(1)(A)(ii) with respect to a beneficiary during any taxable year shall, in the aggregate, include not more than $10,000 in expenses described in subsection (c)(7) incurred during the taxable year."

Beneficiary is per child, not per family.
In NYS only $10,000 is deductible per couple. No matter how many kids.

OP is only discussing in respects to MS, not state tax deduction. That seems to be the source of the confusion.

If I buy 10 of these will I get 1.5x on bp or do they get charged in separate $500 increments?

When I buy Amex GCs directly from Amex, if I spend >= $5k in a single order, regardless of the number of GCs in the order, I get 1.5x. I would think same rule applies here.
