Time to check in on the old leather card holder and see what I am dragging around. The stock ones are my Delta Reserve, Barclays Arrival, Chase Sapphire, Chase INK business card, SPG AMEX & AMEX Plat (non-Delta) travel cards. The others I have come to always have one of with me is simple, but there are some things to think about when using it, that is an AMEX Gift card:
I have come to rely on this card more and more, and not just for buying VDGCs (Visa Debit Gift Cards) and then loading them to BB (BlueBird). I like locking in the either 4x Arrival points or the 3% cash back when TCB (Top Cash Back) is having a promo plus the points from the card I used to get the gift cards (most times my AMEX Reserve card to meet the year’s spend). I then use the AMEX gift card when buying things that I don’t care if I get an extended warranty on or not. You see, most travel cards give up to 1 year extension on the manufactures warranty and you forego that if you use the AMEX gift card. But many times I don’t need that so then it works and my points are already locked in.
BTW the rules are the same each week for SWAG Saturday and are HERE. Then on to my question for you today for a chance to win via random.org is a simple one and the prizes are his & her’s 2600mAh power backups , a travel car/wall USB charger adapter plus $13.68 Amazon gift code is this: Have you ever ordered AMEX gift cards? That’s it, yes or no is all I need but feel free to share more if you want! – René
