    Tried to do this with my 2 Biz Plats in late June and Dell just never processed the order, e-mailed customer service and they said it was a “system error” that never fully performed the purchase. Lost out on $200 worth of last periods credits and wept a little.

    Used this method to purchase a Surface Pro 6 from the Microsoft Store a week ago. All 10 Xbox live $100 cards posted to my Dell Digital Locker. All 10 cards were credited by AMEX. Took about 24 hours to post in Dell Digital Locker. Microsoft store only allows a maximum of $1000 in giftcards to be loaded in your account. All 10 cards have been credited by AMEX. Next year I will buy a drone.

      I know you’ve probably done it before but could you give a short breakdown on how you got your (assumedly) 5 biz plats?

    To get multiple business plats there was no particular statagy perse. Over the course of 4 years I applied for a business plat for myself and P2. Both myself and P2 have an EIN. On the application I get creative. 1st I used my business name, 2nd used her business name with my name on app. 3rd I used my business name and with my name I included my middle initial. 4th I used her business name with my name and middle initial. 5th I upgraded business green to business plat. Repeated for P2.

    Not sure if 5 is the max per person because on two separate occasions over a 6 month span I tried applying for an additional business plat and app immediately goes to pending. When I call (same response on both calls 6 months appart) they tell me the app is being looked at by internal team and receive a response by mail in 7 days. Both times I get a letter in mail asking to validate business. AMEX wanted banking statement on bank letterhead with business name. Utility Bill addressed to bussiness etc. They give a 30 day suspense for a response or app will be terminated. So I guess 5 is max without business validation unless someone has more than 5.

      +1 on this. Once you try for biz card #6 they start giving you the run around about business name and address verification.

    AMEX pulled something quite shady when I tried to purchase a monitor from the Dell website. It was end of June and I needed to use my Dell credit before the July cutoff. I purchased it on June 30th (have the receipt from dell) the charge posted on the amex mobile app for my 3 cards. A couple days later the charge disappeared on all 3 cards. Then on July 7th the charges appeared but with a July purchase date instead of the June date. No doubt amex did this on purpose to avoid me using both of my semi annual credits this year. I’m tempted to call in but not sure what that would get me.

      That’s exactly what happened to me on a June 23rd transaction but they just never processed the charges. July 5th I did the exact same thing and go figure the charges posted not even an hour later… same checkout method both times.
