Miscalculated 12 month for amex churn and signed up after 10. Now clock starts ticking again

I am embarrassed but I'll admit it.  I thought the spending threshold on the nfl card was 2k but it was really 3k so I didn't get my bonus. :(
No one to blame but myself.

Only 5x on first 50k. I lost money on the other 8k.
You lost the oppurtunity to gain.

When you are buying GC's with a 3.5% fee I call that a loss.

Point taken.
Still, a minor loss.  At most, 1.7% to sell, if redeemed probably less, no?

Ein hachi nami, you are right.  Cashing out GC's here is too difficult to me, I stick to other methods with is usually only kdai for thresholds.

Sticking with VR is the simplest. but you can rack up tons of points buying GC
