Android only so far.
Quit asking about iPhone.
Computer with an emulator might work...(FWIW it never worked)

Just checked giftcardgranny the best you'll get is 76.5%

Sell to a friend at 90% that's a great rate.
Obviously going through a broker will net you much less.

You definitely can do that, someone asked if resellers buy them and I answered that question. I'm sure you can sell it here for 90%
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Before I empty out ny account I would like to be sure.
Any other GC's with a higher redemption rate? I would be looking to CASH out on my miles.

Is it worth it to transfer UR?

Does anyone have status that I can use to buy the amazon gc?

I normally get pretty decent value on my UR points (9k avios r/t NYC to Toronto/Detroit +$11.20 for a $200+ ticket).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm still getting purchase order failed .

This seems to be pricing out a few merchants at cheaper price.

Panera bread
Nike
AMC theaters

Existing UA points or you transferred over UR?
For me only the existing UA points worked.

Both worked for me to start, Now not even existing miles in a diff account is working.

Is it still working for anyone or can I go to sleep ?
