Amex: no 6% on prepaid cards

darkon112 497 64 June 11, 2016 at 11:03 AM
I got amex because they have 6% cash back in grocery stores, except for superstores (I assume Walmart) and clubs like SAMs and Costco. So.. I bought gift cards (MasterCard) at grocery stores, so that I would still get the 6%.
Anyway.. Just found out that that doesn't work...

Does anyone know how to get the most cash back in these two store groups?

Since when did it stop working? I always used to get the 6% back. Even when I could buy the prepaid Visa cards. Sadly now the stores around me don't offer it anymore Frown

You may just need to wait until the month AFTER you pay the bill you bought a GC on. You don't get the 6% back on the same statement unlike Chase cards.
