lol. 
So in order to get 25K miles, you need to purchase 50 x $25? Is there any other way?
PJ wil buy those GCs off of you for $1,137.50 cash (91%) or $1,193.75 in Amazon GCs (95.5%)
Total cost for the 25K miles will be $112.50, or 0.45cpm if you sell them to PJ for cash or $56.25 (0.225cpm) in Amazon GCs.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

What if they get an overload of Sam's cards being sold to them? Will they stop accepting them?

Also why can't you buy the $10 Gift cards to a different store?

I'm actually gonna use them so no loss for me.  I usually buy Wal-Mart gift cards using my Amex to use at sam's.

Can't beat 0cpm!

It would take quite a while for me to spend my $6K in cards...

238 of my 240 purchases are now showing as pending by United.  Doubt I'll fight the last 2 not posting.

Total miles should be about 123,500, or more than a business class ticket to Israel.
Thanks United for the extension!

Just login to your account.

Oh I see. I was logging in through United. Not Mileageplus. com    Oh man- I only see 2 out off 30 posted as pending.

Who do I talk to about that?

Yeah that's what I kind of figured. Oh well! I got rid of the cards at cost so no money lost but it would be nice to actually get my miles!! We'll see what happens...

I just reopened a UA card to re-qualify for this, and I'm in the process of switching the FFN to the UA account I got the targeted  mailing.

I've noticed a lot of the UA MileagePlus mall stores have added verbiage excluding GC purchases. What store GC purchases qualify besides for Nordstrom and Sam's Club? (or can I buy Home Depot GCs and my purchase will qualify for the promotion but I won't get the bonus points from the UA MP mall?)

I read on FT  that a few more stores have changed to "no g.c. count" I take it as they do not count toward promo -- I BOUGHT SOME K-MART GC  TODAY they appear to be ok and the do not charge any extra fee---- easy to use up on many food items , household products etc.-- do not think HD COUNTS

HD definitely excludes GCs, it's in the MP mall HD page.

Anyone have any other suggestions for an easy/cheap way to get 25K UA with this promo?
