I want to buy a few AMEX Gift Cards. Currently, MoreRebates.com gives the best cash refund (2%) on these. However, I have never heard of any experiences with this company, and my emails have gone unanswered. Has anyone used MoreRebates.com to get Cash Back with online shopping? Good or bad experiences, or history buying AMEX Gift Cards through them?

Thanks!

My experience is that MoreRebates.com decreased the AMEX GCs CashBack to 1% over a week ago.

They also retroactively lowered my pending rebate amount and I'm disputing them over this.

I placed an order late on the 22nd (late enough that AMEX didnt "accept" the order until the 23rd), when it was at 2%, but I dont know when after that it actually changed to 1%. They only credited me with 1% for my purchase as well, which I've already emailed them about.

Wow that is extremely shady. Lifetime ban for that. TIA

I'm pretty sure it was lowered sometime around the 29th to 31st of January. I also had an order on the 26th which was retroactively lowered from 2% to 1%. I did see the pending rebate for a day or two though.

The pending rebate amount for my order from 1/16 seems to be okay though and correct.

FWIW, my order placed as so has remained at 2%.

It was sometime prior to the 29th. And my prior order from the 16th remains correct at 2%.

My guess is that it changed on the 24th/25th, after our orders from the 22nd were placed, but before they were confirmed/posted to our accounts. Hopefully its a simple quirk that they'll make good on.

Their site has been down for "system maintenance" for several days now. If they disappear I'm out $100.
