Amex Becoming Aware of Cashback redemptions by purchasing GCs

Hi all, just a PSA.

Bought 2x $300 gcards on DJs to try and get $50 back.
Also tried to buy $350 QF voucher to get $50 back on the recent spend and saves.

None have credited cashbacks to my amex accounts so perhaps theyre checking the transactions for g/c purchases. Anyone else having this problem?

    I’d contact Amex to ask questions but would have no leg to stand on when they ask to see the receipt which would clearly show i breached the t/c for the promo.

    Bought a dan Murphy one yesterday and triggered an email right away. Just tried to buy another one using different credit card after seeing this post and no email

  •  

    The Qantas one is sure easy to track but Dan’s should be credited no problems.

    Did you buy the physical cards?

      Fully aware of the t/cs. They were never able to track it previously, which is the point of this post.

        It's not what you buy, but who processes it.

        The last I used an Amex/DJ's online only offer. It was for physical gift cards because egift cards weren't processed by regular DJ's. BTW, I don't know if that's still the case for online purchases of physical gift cards today.

        It's not unlike Woolies Online and Woolies gift cards, ie different companies processing the orders.

    What is the point of this thread?

    You breached T&C and didn't get credited by AMEX. Want a medal?

  •  

    Update; the DJs ones have credited but Qantas unfortunately still hasnt.

  •  

    OP, did you buy physical gift cards in store, or an egift card from the DJ's web site?

    Had a few not work for gift cards recently.

    Dan Murphys - not working (got an email but no refund), (also bought some items from Iconic at a similar time, got the email and the refund on the card)
    Forever New - not working (never got an email)
    MAC Cosmetics - not working (this one says I redeemed the offer and got the email, but no refund on the card)(originally showed on card as one merchant, however changed to one call MAC Gift cards so this one is fair enough)

    How long did it take for DJ to process the gift card and how did it take before you received your DJ credit?
