Spend $15+ in GC fees, to get a Staples $20 GC.

No good unless you are using a 5x rewards card.

Then if you buy $400 worth, you get $20 in GC, and $20 in rewards/points.

Havent used mine as well.

So basically buy $300 worth of Amex GC with Amex cc.
Get $20 statement credit from Amex.
Get $20 GC from Staples.
- activation fee for the $300 GC. (how much is that $5?)

I think I am going to do the same thing. I believe the activation fee is $5.95 per AMEX GC.

Can we split payment in Staples? For example, put $100 on AE cc and $200 on another cc.

-- Update:
found my answer from other forum "Yes, split payments are allowed if the cashier knows how to do it. I did it last time the Amex staples deal was going on. "

Yes, that's the whole point.

We still can't fund a BlueBird account with these AmEx cards, right? I'm still waiting for the Visa and Mastercard prepaid card promos to return.

Yes, I did split payment using two AmEx cc to buy a $200 visa gc early this month, and the transaction went through smoothly. However, when my wife was trying to do this today, it didn't seem to work. After she swept the first cc, she saw a screen asking her to select "Debit" or "Credit". The transaction couldn't go through when she selected "Credit". Anybody know whether this was because the cashier do something wrong, or the Staples system has been changed to disallow buying visa prepaid cards using cc?

This could be good for manufactured spending correct, basically you will earn little more even after paying GC fees + 300 spending on your CC.
