AmEx Plat $50 Saks Bonus: Gift Cards Work When Bought In Person

I got the datapoint I was looking for regarding reimbursement for $50 Gift cards under the new Saks 5th Ave Deal with Personal Platinum:

  1. I added the Saks Deal to my AmEx Personal Platinum (referral link here)
  2. I then linked my card to Ebates for 4% cashback
  3. I then bought a $50 gift card in store and had the charge reimburse two days later

Next step is to hit up the rest of the cards and merge all these $50 cards together into a giant gift card, but I will have to do this in January as I tapped out the other 12 cards on stupid crap.
