Large Amazon Electronics purchase - Staples GC (UR) or Amex
« on: April 25, 2013, 07:07:00 AM »
I'm planning on purchasing an ipad for my wife, and was thinking to get GC's from staples for UR points, however I then though that if I do that I won't get the extended warranty.  Is it worth the points or do you guys recommend using an amex for the warranty.
TIA.

What about Amex Gc's from Staples? Do they give you the extended warranty?

Use AmEx.

Don't believe GCs have extended warranty.

What about using gift cards for the whole purchase and the remaining $25 balance on an amex. How would that work for warranty?
