It shouldn't be too hard to get that, worst case you use the card for US Amazon Payments account and pay the 2.5%

I think 2500.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I called up today to confirm amount and the rep could not find the promo number that was on my account. Currently there's  a promo for just 1000 and he said that will work. I specifically asked him if that's the case even if I signed up with different offer and he confirmed. I took down his name. Has anyone had experience with Canadian Amex like this? Also if that's the case I figured maybe I should just buy gift cards the remainder. Anybody know if the gas  companies offer gc's without fees?

I'm sorry I was unclear. There is the same offer currently to get 20000 points, though you only need to spend $1000 not $2000. The rep told me I qualify for this offer even though I signed up with a different offer that would have required I spend more to receive the 20000 points. I want make sir this is correct. I don't want them telling me later that I won't get the bonus points cuz I only spent $1000

spend the $1000, call for the bonus, once you get it spend another $1000 (and your original bonus should kick in automatically)
obviously that's not supposed to happen, and you can't call to ask for it, but it's been known to happen

I am in Canada for the weekend and stopped by some gas stations. It seems some of them charge a fee for activating their gc (about $5 on a $100 card). Esso does not charge any fee for their cards. I thing I'm gonna buy $500 worth and either have my parents use them over the next couple months and/or try to sell them. It would also be an eitzah for those needing to reach a theshold on the Chase Saphire, as they don't charge a foreign transaction fee.
