Receiving Cash Back at Supermarket Question

Postby JWAG » Wed Aug 10, 2011 10:36 am

I was wondering if anyone has purchased gift cards and received cash back on them through their credit card company. I know with American Express, you can check your reward status online. All someone has to do is buy groceries and a few gift cards, check their online statement for rewards, and calculate whether or not the gift cards were applied to rewards percentages or not. I hope this works! Thanks in advance.

It works. I've been doing this for a while.

The technique is also a backdoor to get 6% cash back on gas, through buying the gas station credit cards from a supermarket.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
