AAdvantage Mall [now only 3 mi.]/$ for Walgreen.

Old reward was 3 mi./$, now it's 15 mi./$. Very big promotion.

Great deal! Although aren't gift cards supposed to be excluded? Is it that they just slip through sometimes?

Can you buy gift cards with gift cards (like Sears double dip)? If so, then this would be more lucrative than EBags because you could get 31 miles/$ and flip them for 80% value.

very fast posting, if my gift card comes before the 23rd, I will see if double dips are possible and report back.

as a point to make. cardpool is buying walgreens gift cards at 83% value, up to $1000. If you buy a $1000 gift card, you would earn 15K AA Miles, + 1000 CC Points for a total of 16K points. Then sell it for $830. You would lose $170, but gain 16K points. This comes to right at 1.06 cpm. Not a terrible price for not much work.

Anyone find anything else at Walgreens that can get more than 83% return if sold ?
