DO THEY COUNT AS PURCHASES?
It is confirmed that Citi will consider these as a Cash Advance. They will hit you with a fee AND won't count them toward spending.

HOW TO CASH OUT?
Blue Bird: Amex gift cards cannot be used to load bluebird.
Money Orders: Many locations require a debit card with a PIN; Amex GC don't have a PIN.
Try Amazon Payments, Target Amex or MC/VS GC's from many places.

Would I be able to order these cards, and then buy mint coins with them? I don't want to raise red flags with mint purchases bec. last time I made big mint purchase I got FR'd. If I buy GC's and use that to buy mint coins would that raise less red flags?

You may get free shipping, but you still have to pay a $3.95 purchase charge, right? Do you get Starwood points for buying these cards?

The charge is waived with the code above. And you do get Starpoints.

My question is, can we do this? When purchasing coins on the US Mint website do we have to pay with a cc or can we pay with a GC? If we pay with a GC there wouldn't be a billing address. Has anyone every bought coins with a gift card?

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to pay with a GC.  You can probably use any billing address.

Don't wanna get all technical in forum language, but OP means original poster not original post.

WARNING:   I bought coins from the mint using AMEX gift cards, and the mint cancelled my order. I called up and they said there's a problem with my billing address that it can't be confirmed. I told them it's an AMEX GC and doesn't have any billing address (I used my shipping address). They said they don't accept them bec. the the billing address can't be cofirmed and I must use either a regular CC or debit card.

Did you call AMEX and ask them how to use the card online?
