Valid promo codes for AmEx gift cards (no PIN)

When purchasing directly from AmEx website, I am able to use promo codes for fee free/no activation. However, when I am trying to go through a third party site, it says the code is invalid. I see a lot of folks are successfully using both. Which portals are allowing to use promo codes? I have tried Mr Rebates and ebates, don`t have BC account yet and don`t trust TCB.

They don`t work for me via ebates, mrrebates, and mypoints, but work when buying directly from AmEx. The question was what to do to use both codes and portals. Any specific cards I would have to buy for that? (I am buying brown ones), or anything else I would have to follow?

I have an account with FW, but I haven`t purchased anything via them. Do they pay out ok and not like scumbags TopCashBack?

Barclays Arrival card, and my Discover card both have posted as purchases within the last week. If you use a cash back portal for these the offer code may invalidate the cash back, just an fyi.

Amex Prepaid to BB

Not sure if this is already discussed...Does anyone tried to transfer the Amex prepaid to BlueBird account? I haven't tried this before.

Thanks

If you can use the coupon via a cashback portal, then cash out by purchasing VR's at CVS, this can be a money maker.
