A friend of mine alerted me when she saw this at Rite Aid in Queens, NY. Buy 3 American Express gift cards and receive a $10 rebate, up to $30 per household. Each card activation is $4.95. If you need to hit your spend on a new card, this would be a great way to spend $1500 (3 x $500) for ( $10 – (4.95×3) = $4.85 after the rebates. The fees becomes .32%.
