Amex Gift Card $2000 --> Spending threshold
« on: September 02, 2013, 05:30:56 PM »
I recently applied for Amex Platinum Business, SPG, and SPG Business. I also was recently given an Amex Gift Card for $2,000. Amex said that I cannot use the GC to pay off my credit card. Selling it won't get me close to $2,000. Anyone have a creative idea to use the GC towards the CC?

You are just trying to cash out the GC?

I did and it is easy to find a previous post. The problem is sorting through the answers that do not apply to the questions. If you know of the link that will take me directly to the answer then you'll win 100 DansDeals dollars, okay, Mr. Elite Member Super Speed?

Pretty much, but any other creative suggestions that might get me close to 2K other than selling? TIA!

You can use them on AP. You can buy VS/MC at some stores (5-6 fee per 500 GC) with them and then use them to purchase MO's. You can load them to Amex Target card and unload via ATM but with fees.

You don't need to get personal its just annoying to have to see everyones new thread when there's probably 10 different posts dedicated to this topic.
If you find a thread that deals with this thing even tho you didn't find the answer you can post a new question there.
