If I want to order $500 in coins so I reach my $1500 to get miles on my amex citi AA card, is it recommended to first buy a amex gift card and then order the coind with that gift card? Why?

It was "safer." But the Mint stopped accepting (or AMEX stopped approving) coin purchases on the Gift Cards.

Except for Citi I believe, but I've read that people have been F/Red because of this (I can't confirm), so beware.

wouldnt it be smarter to put it on a amex plat over amex starwoods as it provides protection against theft? or does the amex starwoods do the same?

If I've got a cash advance limit set to $750 on a Citi Aadvantage card and I placed a $1000 order at the mint, then it will either go through as a purchase or get denied because the cash advance limit is too low correct?

Yes, but don't get your hopes high with Citi.

You can buy an amex gc for 1k...granted you cant deposit it, but its a heck of a lot easier. Maybe sell it to someone at a discount...

Mint and Gift cards(even though they're from Amex) purchases are both getting red flagged. They know the system, I think it's just a hit or miss situation.
