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.

When the code posted in the OP doesn't work anymore, you can use REFER100 or EMSVCA1 to get no-fee GC's

Ok, So today I got my 5 $1000 gift cards and I am trying to decide the best way to convert to cash.

Can someone just post step-by-step instructions for what they did?  I either want to order mint or just get refund check if possible.

I need to change all of the names first, how? Their automated menu options were very confusing and couldnt figure out who I wanted to speak to.

Thanks in advance

you need to speak to a live person. tell him for online purchases you need to assign a name/billing address

Do I have to call 5 different time or can I assign all 5 cards in the same phone call to different names?

You can do it all on the same call, but the person at the call center is not going to be the best english speaker and the more confusing you make it the more likely things will get messed up.

Looking for everyones 2cents please..

With people getting FR'ed from AE for either buying from the mint or purchasing the AE GC's.. which is believed to be safer? To what limits have people spent on either and have/have-not been FR'ed?

Assuming one can purchase beyond the limit @ the Mint how much should he purchase at one shot? and the same Q for AE GCs... being that he's "giving them away" and the recipients are the ones who are requesting the refunds via check.. why should this be safer?

It would appear that AMEX is FR'ing people even without the above.  Several people I know have just been randomly FR'ed for no apparent reason.
