Just to add more data points to this process, I just requested a combined bank transfer of two Tigerdirect prepaid reward Amex cards. I was told the cards had to be first suspended and then a refund could be issued.
The rep needed my address, bank name, bank routing number, bank account, and the prepaid card details.
The call took less than 20mins, was given a reference #, and told it should take ~14 business days.
did it again for the second time! saturday morning, 0 minutes of hold time, and processed within 5 minutes. AMEX customer service is the best of all the financial companies, with maybe the exception of Discover
I just found this thread and hallelujah! Finally a way to get rid of those rebate cards before the monthly fees kicked in. I called the number on the back of the tiger direct amex reward cards and asked to have my rebate cards consolidated and direct deposited to my checking account. Agent knew exactly what I was talking about and the process was easy just time consuming. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on hold while they process your cards if you have a lot of cards. Each one will take a few minutes to process. My 14 cards took over an hour. On top of that they have to take down your name, address, checking account info, etc. This is definitely the best way to use the rebate cards. When I used them on PayPal, I ended up with a bunch of small leftover balances, not to mention that pesky $1 pre-authorization hold.
