Pro tip #1. If you are not buying anything for $200, buy Newegg GCs.
Pro tip #2. If buying Newegg gift cards, split it up, like buy 4 x $50 GCs (in a single transaction) to later combine with Visa check-out like offers. (In the past, it was possible to use Visa check-out discount even if most - but not all of the balance was paid with GCs.)
Pro tip #3. If Newegg is not your thing, check out their selection of branded gift cards.

This is available on most cards. You can also add the offer via Twitter with #AmexNewegg.

Newegg has an OK selection of merchant gift cards. If you can't find anything you like, the $200 eGift Visa is the best bet with a $9.95 fee so it's a $15 money maker. It can only be used online or on the phone and most people have bills they can pay with it. Otherwise, you can buy two $100 regular Visa gift cards but the profit is only $10 after fees.

The portal terms and conditions exclude gift cards but the cash back seems to be posting anyway. Of course YMMV. You can get 3% at Shopathome or 2% at Topcashback. I assume it's ok to mention this since FW is no longer offering cash back.

So with the virtual visa, I guess there's no real way to convert it to actual cash?

The American Express offers are great. Within an hour of making a purchase, I usually have an email from American Express saying, "you've successfully redeemed a promotion". I always get the statement credit right away too. In a world where rebates are a huge PITA and a big hassle, the American express promos are a breath of fresh air.

Wow... I sound like a paid AE spokesman!

I ordered a $200 Visa eGift, but when I tried to redeem the gift card, I got: "Certificate Activating Please try again in a few minutes." This is after I received the email for one and half hours. Just wonder how long I have to wait, or is there something wrong?

Should already be activated when you receive the email.

Anyone know if the $200 is pre or post tax? Looking at an item that is under $200 but will be over with tax and wondering if I need to add an item to be on the safe side.

  AMEX only looks at the total charge.
