credit card and gift card purchases…

  1. Nadine Franks

    I am hoping to you can help figure out something I’ve never quite understood regarding using cash back credit cards to buy gift cards. For example if I buy an Uber gift card — now discounted on Amazon and I use my Amazon Prime Credit card to pay for it —
    do I get the discounted rate as well as the 5% cash back from Amazon since I used their credit card.

    Same as in Safeway, if I buy a gift card at Safeway, do I get the 6% credit from my Amex Blue Cash card?
