Only 1.75% Cash Back from Big Crumbs for Amex Gift Cards – Still A Good Deal?

Big Crumbs offers cash back for Amex gift card purchases. This can be a great way to increase credit card spend to meet minimum spend requirements, or it can be a good way to get additional rewards for everyday purchases. Right now BigCrumbs.com is offering 1.75% cash back (usually it is 1.4%) for purchases of Amex Gift Cards. Although this might not seem like a lot, it is a great way to advance spend to get to that $5,000 in 3 months required for the Chase Ink Bold card. Even if you don’t have a card you are churning, it can be a good icing on the cake for the SPG Amex. Let’s assume you were going to spend $1,000 anyway. If you buy a $1,000 gift card, you would pay $3.95 for the card (assuming free shipping) and you would receive $17.50 in cash back. Plus you would get the 1,004 Star Points (valued at $30 based on my 3 cents per Star Point valuation) for your purchase. Essentially, you netted $13.50 for simply buying the gift card. Not earth shattering, but at scale this could add up.

In any case, if you intend to take advantage of this offer, please follow this link because I will get a referral bonus if you sign up.

Also, when you place your order use promo code WRAP12P to get free standard shipping.
