I bought 2.5k yesterday and there was no mention of a 2k a day limit. Sucks about the price increase though.

Yup. Bought 2.5k. 3.95 per card. And I asked about filling out a form so I could buy more. He said that a manager will have to approve it. M - f 9-5. I didn't know you have to fill out the form everytime and get it approved. I have a feeling it is going to be like Vons when they said, "sorry we cannot sell you anymore gc"

Wanted to share some data point from this past weekend.

I hit two Simon malls in the past 3 days. First one allowed $2500 ($500 ea) purchase, but asked me to fill out the consumer info form. Second mall actually refused to take my US Airways MC, stated that the manager no longer allows "reward cards" purchases. They were okay taking Amex Everyday Preferred or Ink Plus.. which doesn't show "miles" or "points" on the card. I didn't argue or push the issue.

I picked up 19 Simon GCs on my way to Milwaukee yesterday. Everything was the same except for the price. I used 4 CCs to pay for them with no problem.

Picked up 12 cards (6k) today at my local SoCal SM as the customer service reps could only do 3k each. They also had to call some service to verify my card was in good standing & had me fill out the form.

Buy AmEx GC at cvs (0 cost this week) using Old AmEx blue cash for 5pts and use the AmEx GCs at Simon mall which can be used for MO or BP at wmt.?

Very YMMV. I personally have not been allowed to use AMEX gift cards here (even when my name has been printed on the card). Others have had luck.

If you want to try it, be prepared to have a secondary method that you find acceptable to unload the card.

Do you mean Simon mall may not accept the Amex GC? Can u get Amex GCs with your name on it?
Secondary method to down load the amex GCs is to use at the grocery store or CVS to buy visa GCs, back to square one for no gain no loss round trip.

Most Simon Malls don't accept AmEx gift cards, but a few will. It's definitely YMMV.

For instance, you just posted there is an entire thread using pinable prepaid debit cards, I put a number of different options to search that... i.e, pinable card, prepaid cards, pinable debit cards, etc and came up with 7 different threads...not in the mood to figure which one 'might' be the correct thread...as I have searched for the right threads for weeks now...Thanks for the feedback tho...take care
In case you didn't notice, there are some real jerks in here, who think they are oh-so-smart simply because they discovered this forum before you.

Some of them *might* realize that they are too clever by a half when they get a letter from the IRS, or worse, their bank gets a civil forfeiture order from an LE agency.
