Miles for Home Depot Gift Cards

Just came across this. AAshopping has bonus miles on Home Depot for 3 miles per dollar spent. (Plus another 1 for your AA CC). It appears they even give you miles for gift card purchases which is a little unusual for AAshopping. Could be useful for someone who needed a few extra miles without flying. Haven't looked lately but you could probably sell the GC on ebay an recoup much of the cost.

Yeah, because you could use Gift Cards to shop online and get more miles.

Actually, I don't think you can use HD gift cards online to get miles...although I could be wrong about that. Mine has a gazillion digit number on it, and a barcode....and that's it.

Cheers.
