Thread Details

Last Edited by Jabbit March 1, 2016 at 07:02 AM
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?

There is NO buying/selling in this thread. This thread is specifically for tracking websites/merchants that buy airline miles and credit card points/rewards. There is zero tolerance for this policy. Do you have questions regarding if what you are about to post is allowed? Please read these rules - http://slickdeals.net/f/7522872?v=1

According to reports from various people on here and FW, avoid the buyer "Sellmileage.com"

Understand the risks. You could get your account frozen, and a very threatening e-mail demanding you tell them details about the trip you booked. If that happens, you will get points taken away from you, and possibly your account shutdown. All brokers know this, and few are telling sellers, but have you noticed how some places no longer buy AA miles that used to?

Send an e-mail to all the brokers listed in this thread and tell them what points you have and how much they are paying. The rate for points and demand changes CONSTANTLY. Always bargain with the brokers and try to get a higher price. No deal is done until you get the info on where to transfer the points. Everyone is flaky, both buyers and sellers so accept that this is the norm

Always check the last few pages for recent reports.


Shop around a good starting point is what is listed in the screenshot.

Do not pay much attention to posts from SD users who have very few posts, very few reputation points, and/or just joined very recently who also do not provide the details the their transaction.

It seems the price changes time by time. I attached a different price.

This post can be edited by most users to provide up-to-date information about developments of this thread based on user responses, and user findings. Feel free to add, change or remove information shown here as it becomes available. This includes new coupons, rebates, ideas, thread summary, and similar items.

Once a Thread Wiki is added to a thread, "Create Wiki" button will disappear. If you would like to learn more about Thread Wiki feature, click here.



My approach: I BCC all the brokers and see what responses I get. Whoever is saying what I want to hear/making the best offer/responding promptly is who I go with.

How are transactions completed? Contact brokers for specific instructions but will vary with each broker/rewards program involved. May included:

1. Membership Rewards: Broker will send you the name of someone to add and their FF info. You have a rep (via chat or phone) add an authorized user to your account and either have the rep transfer the points to their FF account or have them set it up so you can transfer it. It took me 3 reps via chat to finally get it done as some reps are better than others. Confirm transfer, get paid. I haven't had to give up account access and can't see why one would need to. A few days or so later I have a rep remove the person from my account (don't want to raise flags with quick adds/deletes, no confirmation that it will but would rather be safe then sorry). Just as an FYI it seems like you may need a minimum of 75K MR points to catch the attention of brokers. Anything less may require patience or luck.

2. Ultimate Rewards: Broker will send you the name of someone to add and their FF info. Go into your account online if you have the INK + and that person as an authorized user. Transfer points to their FF account and then get paid. Shouldn't have to give up account access with the INK +. Somebody else will have to detail the process for the other Chase branded cards (Sapphire? INK CASH?). A few days or so later I go online and remove the person I added.

3. Mileage Plus: You will either purchase the award ticket as instructed by the broker or give them access to your account (give them your login). Some brokers may be willing to pay you beforehand. Process will vary from broker to broker so see which on they use or negotiate one. Some may also prefer you to have the mileage plus credit card and use that card to pay for award fees & taxes. I assume this is to help give off the impression that it is you buying the ticket.

4. AAdvantage: You will either purchase the award ticket as instructed by the broker or give them access to your account (give them your login). Some brokers may be willing to pay you beforehand. Process will vary from broker to broker so see which on they use or negotiate one. Some may also prefer you to have the AA credit card and use that card to pay for award fees & taxes. I assume this is to help give off the impression that it is you buying the ticket. The market for AAs can be scarce at times because of shutdowns in the past so proceed with caution.

5. SW/Rapid Rewards:Anybody?

6. Delta:Anybody?

R2C typically has you wait until the traveler flies to ensure that you don't modify or cancel the reservation. That said, he was willing to pay me the other half early as long as I signed an affidavit stating that I would not change the reservation and my password prior to the travel and faxed/e-mailed that affidavit back to him.
I find it weird that he makes you sign an affadavit regarding an activity that is against the ToS of any award program.

Anybody have problems linking travel account to your amex account? I am trying to transfer points into an account that rewards2cash supplied me with, however, it has been 24 hours since I submitted the new account and it has yet to be confirmed so I can transfer the points.

I sold a bunch of AA and UA miles to Bruce and it was very painless. He PayPal'ed me the money before I gave him the account information. We're still in touch since I'll be selling a few more miles in the coming weeks. No complaints here.

Well Bruce got back to me and same...he's a trusting guy I guess. Got paid, and gave him my account info. Very painless. Didn't sell all my miles but he paid immediately so I took it.

He just seems unresponsive for a bit if there's no buyers for the miles you need at the exact moment.

You guys can Skype him though at brucergoldberg and he seems to be super responsive.

Lol Im sorry but that just cries fishy. Medical conditions? This guy sounds like a nigerian prince.
I just did a deal for 359K air miles with Bruce and it was painless.It took just a few hours (I was busy with work) and right now I have a chunk of cash sitting in my PayPal account. Bruce is the real deal and very professional/easy to work with. I would, and will, recommend him to everyone. Maybe you should hold of on your judgements of others "SlickDilla." Try and give someone the benefit of a doubt.

"He just seems unresponsive for a bit if there's no buyers for the miles you need at the exact moment."

Guys, this is Bruce "flight hunter"

I first wanted to thank everyone who has contacted and sold to me over the last couple of weeks. I understand that you have a choice of who to sell to, and I want you to know that I genuinely appreciate you coming to me when you want to sell your points.

I pretty much buy everything. With that being said, there are certain things that I do not buy because they are either not enough points for us to use, or too risky for both you and I to engage in.

I also wanted to address the Chase issue. The folks who have sold to the "other guys" have been instructed to transfer in a way that puts them at risk for audits. None of my sellers have been audited or have had their accounts shut off by chase.

We pay upfront, all at once. No deposits, no lists, and most of the time no waiting. Sometimes I can give you a quote and tell you I will buy your points and most of the time this happens. But just like with life, there are times when things just dont line up properly. I work til midnight to support my family, however if you send me an email at 2 am in the morning, I cannot answer it right away. With amex, there are times where I can take the points, but need an hour or 3 to figure out where to send them to.

"nigerian prince" is a nice term. You will notice that most of the american express points we buy get sent to Singapore airlines. The reason is we are part of a travel network that helps send people overseas to adopt children. SO far we have helped 6 families with the comings and goings of the process. What we do with the points should not be a factor, but I can tell you that your information is safe with us. We do not sell or exchange your information like other brokers do. We offer competitive pricing, and most of the time i am here to talk to you personally, walk you through the process, or just talk about life in general. We also offer our clients discounted airfare on delta and SW where we can, discounts on Hyatt stays anywhere in the world when we can, and we let you know about any upcoming opportunities to get free points so that you can help grow your bank account.

If you need to ever get ahold of me, I can be reached at flighthunter on Facebook or you can find me on gmail at brucergoldberg2 .

and lastly, Yes I have a chronic illness. I help others with chronic illnesses. That is how i founded our company and that is the mission of my company. I am a customer of my own company as well.

Thank you again!

This is real fishy. To be honest, I have no problem with someone doing business and making money, but don't make a profitable business and make someone believe all you care about is helping humanity. That to me just seems wrong. If he happens to work with an adoption agency in Singapore its not out of the kindness in his heart but rather because they pay real good money for the points he buys. Again, totally okay with me that he makes money but don't try swinging this as charity because its clearly not. With regards to this claim that other brokers buy points and put the sellers at risk because Chase audits them- that is completely un called for. As someone very familiar with the business, Chase has closed accounts after transfers made from UR to UR by a chase sapphire preferred card. All other transfers are generally okay but there is a risk with every transfer that goes against their terms and conditions and he cannot say otherwise.

Flighthunter-Please don't try intimidating people on here to not sell to other people because you do something "special". Good luck to you and your business but don't try passing stories that other people/sites are doing anything more shady than yours....

I do both. Who really cares? would you like me to fax you a copy of my medical records and some of the adoption papers? I offer a fair honest transaction and will continue to do so. What i do with the points honestly is not any concern, they leave your account. But you called me a "nigerian prince''. I am a jewish united states citizen. I do not associate myself with anyone from nigeria nor princes. Lets please keep this civil. This will be my last post regarding this. If anyone has points to sell, please contact me. Everyone else, best wishes, there are still good people out there. Bruce

It was interesting reading the past few pages. Not really sure why people are making a fuss over how Bruce uses the points/miles he buys, but I can tell you he makes transacting business very easy.

I literally just completed an AMEX rewards point sale to Bruce (109000 points). He emailed me earlier this evening, I agreed to the payment, I gave him my phone number to call and while on the phone he paid via Paypal and then I transferred my points.

I will be doing business with him again. Feel free to PM me with any questions, I'll be online late tomorrow.

Hello everyone. This is my first posting but I've been following these forums for a while. I usually post at fatwallet. Anyway, just did my first transfer ever with Bruce. Couldn't be easier. He gave me a better rate than rewards2cash and transferred money upfront. Instant communication by e-mail. I highly recommend him.
