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.

Do these cards count towards spending on Amex Platinum?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Any codes these days for a year of free shipping? Or did those die out?

Yeah, but you can't combine that with a no-purchase fee code. :-\

I was recently repaid a loan by someone in several larger denomination Amex GC. Is there any decent way to cash these out aside from risking it on square? Looking through the wiki and thread it seems like there isn't however figured it didn't hurt too much to ask... Thanks!

Use it as cc. You can buy VGCs with it, if you have a way to liquidate those.

ETA: See wiki.

Saw that. What's so exciting about Amazon Reloads? Just to test if the AGC are working or something more to it?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
