2) Use your American Express card to buy American Express gift cards through the Bigcrumbs link (search for American Express gift cards, and select "business") You will earn 1.6% CASH BACK from Big Crumbs. You may also be able to find coupon codes for free gift cards and free shipping. There is one type of gift card (gift box with a yellow bow) that you can buy up to $3K.
3) Receive and activate your gift cards online, registering it to yourself and your address.
4) Order dollar coins from the mint with the gift cards.
5) Circulate your legal tender currency as desired to settle all debts, public and private, in accordance with the Coinage Act of 1965, which states that any DEBT can be paid with any legal tender US currency. (i.e. Wal-Mart doesn't have to accept them for a real-time purchase, but the county tax collector or or the lender of your car note DOES have to accept them).
This way you get the points on your AMEX for buying the gift card, then 1.6% cash back from Big Crumbs.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
