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.

Update:  I called Amex, they said if I register the card with Amex and give them a name and address, they will apply that to the card.
They said I cant do this online and must call up for each gift card and register.  Now I have to see if the mint takes this!

Good luck and keep us posted!
If it works it's an incredible strategy for the mint.
You can probably even give different billing addresses to get more coins...

I put names and addresses on my GC's (Different names on each so hopefully I can put a few orders through at the same time) but Amex said I have to wait 8 days from when the mint put a hold on the $ before it is avail and I can use the card.

You can try calling the mint to remove the hold.

How can we do that? Just give our address and write "apt. #1"?

Exactly. Or apt 1b, or #5c.

My UPS guy knows about all my names and Apts already. When he delivered my Gift Cards recently, he thanked me for ordering something lighter than coins. Little did he know....
