Any way to cash Amazon GC?

With 7x TYP on Amazon, I think I can get a lot of money if I can cash Amazon GC. Any idea how to?

Best offer you're going to get is either selling them on eBay or using purse.io but you're going to take a 10% hit minimum, which makes it pretty much pointless.

Your best bet for maxing out your retention offer is fixed value $100-$200 VGC at a college bookstore. If you can find one that has the $200s you'll earn 1449 TYP each.

I have the same card but I'm holding off on calling for the retention offer until I find something better to maximize it with.

What retention offer did your Forward give you? I called Citi and they refused to give me anything. I'll try calling again. I use my legacy Forward quite a bit for dining, average $700-1100/month.

A lot of people have had success getting a retention offer on the Forward of an extra 2x TYP per dollar, including on bonus categories, for 6 months. Frequent Miler did a post on Citi retention offers a few months ago.

My stepdad just drove my stepsister across the country last week and said there was a Cracker Barrel at nearly every freeway exit in the south. When he told me that, all I could think of was the Cracker Barrel thread from a couple years ago. He missed out on some mega points & miles along the way...probably enough to pay for his flight back home. Haha
