Credit Card Programs - Using multiple amex gift cards to make paypal payment?
Jun 21, 12, 8:49 am
I have two amex giftcards that I bought using freedom for 5% cash back. I'm expecting to make a large item purchase soon via paypal. Is there a way to transfer amex funds to my paypal account using two diffrent gift cards?

i will tell you about using giftcards on paypal.
I have several $500 visa gift cards. I successsfully used few to send money until yesterday. I added a new $500 visa debit gift card to send and removed the other visa gift card info from my profile. The transaction went thru but my paypal acount for RESTRICTED= ACCOUNT REVIEW. it said the reason is adding too many cards and removing cards. Called and was told the same thing, i explained that i always don't use same card for same transactions and i have 60 plus credit cards. after speaking to manager and 24 hrs later, my account got restored but says I can't add any more cards. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS NONSENSE.

The same thing happened to me. I had earned numerous $25 VISA gift cards. Over time, I would add each card to one of my PayPal accounts, and then send the money to my other PayPal account (and then withdraw to my checking account). That's when they froze my account, telling me that I had reached my lifetime limit of adding 16 credit cards to my PayPal account (although I would delete the card after I had used it).
They unfroze my account, but they told me to knock it off.
