I hope it would work for Discover and Freedom in season, too, for slightly more/much more than 1 cent per point on 5% categories.
This way I don't have to worry about merchant codes. If I needed to return something, I could use the gift card balance some other time.
Thanks. That sounds like a plan. I have read, however, that you lose some protection by not purchasing with the credit card. I guess this could arise if you have a problem with the product or perhaps you pay but never receive it? It would be interesting to hear from anyone what issues could arise if using a gift card rather than the credit card when making purchases.
