Think about this. If a warehouse employee wants to buy family members some gift cards like Banana Republic, Swarowski, L'Occitane, Aveda, J Crew, Neiman Marcus that person can afford gift cards, that doesn't mean they can afford the stores. you wont get the 5% back. however if you use a card to buy them that gets miles like a capital1 venture chase sapphire you will get your miles on gift cards.
1 thing to remember is it matters what category you're in. for example let's say you sign up for the gas category, now where a lot of people live BJs might have some gas pumps. take a guess you, don't get 6% back on the preferred or 5% back on the freedom or More card because BJs is a whole sale store.
same if you go to Mandies whatever and you buy jewelry. let's say you have signed up for clothing stores you still get back your percentage, because Mandies is a clothing even though you bought jewelry.
so if you go to shoprite and you wanted to buy gift cards for Ruby Tuesdays, Banana Republic, Armani Exchange, Buffalo Wild Wings you won't get the 6% percent back or 5% in the restaurant and fashion because you bought them in a grocery store.
groceries would be when you buy food, milk, soda, cookies etc these would be in the grocery store category. that's when you get 5% or 6% cash back.
