Thread Details

Just got an AMEX card a few months ago, and now have 75K points with the sign up promo. I was thinking about getting some gift cards with the points and sell the gift cards, but heard some people mentioning Rewards2Cash.com.

I never heard of the website before and their payout rate for points seems to be really good, have anyone used them before?

While I haven't actually verified it, I'm pretty sure it's 2.5 - 3% (can't remember which). But the check comes in later-- so depends if the convenience is worth the extra %.

Yes. It was stated earlier in the thread I believe...or maybe I read it somewhere else. This would be the same with rewards2cash for those who are interested.

Bruce does seem like a nice guy. But he's taking forever to use the miles (did get paid first).

To transfer the AMEX points do they need access to your account?

If you use these services are you supposed to pay taxes on the cash you get? Granted if they dont report it to the IRS not a big deal, but seems like they would have to if they are us based

It's been over 3 weeks and he still has most of my points. Honestly I'm not entirely sure he hasn't forgotten about them and he didn't r espond to my latest inquiry (usually he responds within minutes). I'm happy I have the money, but I want to change passwords back, etc.

i asked an accountant once he told me why is it different than if you were to get cash back from the company (which you FOR SURE do not need to report)
Even if you were to tell me that its because you got a "higher" value than the comany would give, i have gotten 10 cents at times (by using them for hotels or flights) does that mean i need to pay taxes?

If you redeem through the credit card site its simply a rebate or discount on existing purchases


When you sell something to a third party doesnt that now become ordinary income that you need to report? I think there is a limit you have to exceed but its just like if you sold something on ebay.
