CLI with Amex should not be a hard pull. DoC confirms that as well.

Can someone please add to wiki, suggested methods (that have widespread experience) for meeting transaction threshold (i.e. Amazon GC balance reload)?

With Amazon it appears autoload is minimum $5.00.  So if you want to sit back and let it happen by itself, you are looking at $150 per month with daily $5 additions.  Not terrible if you use Amazon a lot anyway and want the convenience. 
If you load yourself you can do $0.50.
If I'm correct, I'll add to wiki. 
If everyone chimes in on other ideas, I'll collect and wikify.

True.  S&S stuff usually doesn't really require cc warranty, so I guess use for that. 
Is there a way to set auto load for every other day or similar? That would be helpful.  You can always load daily for a couple weeks then cancel and start again, but then it's no longer as convenient.

Any reported issues lately with Amazon if you reload multiple times in a row? Up thread someone seemed to mention a concern.

Did it a few times a month or two ago with np. I'd do .50 and maybe .53 or something like that.

And Prime Pantry, if you use it.

A few months ago I had an issue where Amazon merged two charges into one transaction.

I'm not sure if this was discussed earlier, but I was able to make a payment to my tmobile phone bill for $0.01. They allow this only through the automated phone system (IVR). Online there's a $1.00 minimum. When going through the IVR, you need to make sure you don't input the same amount more than once per day, (they detect that as a duplicate). The voice recognition is not the best. to enter $0.01 dial 0*01.
Easy method to complete 30 transactions in 10 minutes. No amazon $0.50 needed if you have tmobile.

My Everyday Preferred card just hit it's $95 annual fee.  I can't decide if it's worth it to keep it or downgrade to the Everyday card.  I do spend $6,000 on groceries a year, but I don't use the card for gas station (I use a different business card).  I also usually sell my points and don't use them myself.  Assume I'm spending an average of $3,000 a month on the card.

Any advice on if it's financially worth the annual fee based on the information I just gave.
