The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN
 

There has been some reader confusion about this deal and how it works. So let me show the math!

Right now most $25 certs cost $10 pre discount. After 90% off code they are $1.00. After eBates 30% off they each cost just 70 cents. Clear?

You must spend $25 ( not one cert but REAL $25) to get the $5.00 bonus back from eBates. So, if you buy:

25x$1=$25 cost in certs. $25×25=$625.00 in value. 2x what I said actually.

(If you want you could also buy $475 worth of e-Gift certs as you see below)

So you spent $25 in certs and now get 30% cash back at eBates = $7.5 and since you spent $25 you also get the $5.00 new user bonus.

Thus $25-7.5-5=$12.50 cost to GET up to $625 in food discounts!

Got it? Today Saturday is the LAST day for this deal- René
