If you’re anything like me, you use Amazon for a good number of purchases each year. It’s convenient, and with Amazon Prime ($79/year), two-day shipping is free (one-day shipping is only $3.99). Wouldn’t it be nice to earn even more points for shopping there anyways than you do already?
For instance, today, I needed to make a purchase on Amazon for roughly $120. Normally, I would’ve earned 120 points on my American Express Gold card, but by purchasing a gift card at a grocery store, I was able to earn 240 points. Same thing would happen if I purchased the gift card at a gas station, since that card gets me two times the point there, as well.
