I have extra 5% back this quarter. Just to confirm, will amazon gift cards count?
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.

buying amazon e-giftcard with freedom before the end of the month will give me 5 points per dollar on my freedom cards right? Doesn't have to be physical card to trigger the bonus category points?
