Above, I’ve also taken the liberty of listing some of the other Gift Card offers out if you weren’t targeted and still looking for decent AMEX gift card deals to save you a bit of money. Again, this is a targeted offer for upwards of 1.25+ cents per points depending on if you were targeted for 20% or 30%. Definitely may be beneficial for some of you, but I definitely wouldn’t recommend putting your Membership Rewards points in Walmart or Target gift cards.
It’s to my understanding that the Charles Scwab Gift card already gets 1.25 CPP, however, you’d need a Schwabb Platinum Card and your 1.25 CPP goes to your brokerage account with them.
