It's pretty easy from an IT perspective to figure out what the purchase line item is when it posts to Amex. Honestly I'm surprised this hasn't been done for a long time now.

On all the purchases I've done with Amex on my BCP buying $300 gift card purchase in that transaction ONLY, I have always gotten my 6% back. I doubt they would review each transaction individually for every cardholder.
