    I have never purchased anything from SAKS, but was wondering if it is possible to use multiple forms of payment at checkout? You know, for my multiple plattys 🙂

    “Spousal fee waivers vary by state of record.” What does this mean?

    • uiucderp2011 says:

      seems like some states force AmEx to wave fees for spouses, but some state residents do not get the waiver for spouses.

      • Dave says:

        I think it goes by community property states. If your state is a community property state it means spouses own each other’s property regardless of who’s name is attached.

    Do you know if you need to pay with one of the Platinum Cards for the final purchase, or can you pay with the Gold Card, trying to meet minimum spend, like the Uber credit where it doesn’t need to be used with Platinum Card?

    • uiucderp2011 says:

      not sure, but to pay it safe you should charge the $50 only when the card is a platinum, also the option to opt into the deal wont exist until that point.
