Readers, you can thank me for killing a deal with UPromise. When they say, gift cards are not eligible for cash back they mean it. They reversed every transaction, including legitimate purchases (the $1 and $1.50 reversal were the legit transactions).
When I tried this, it tracked perfectly at 5%. Then I scaled up to purchase at $500 blocks of gift cards and UPromise and I was receiving anywhere from 7 to 9% back – that was weird altogether. I continued throughout the month amassing almost $1000 in cashback. All of a sudden, UPromise woke up one day and issued the correct amount, 5% which you can see on the very bottom. Then the following day on the top of the screenshot they reversed every charge:
There you have it, manufactured spending with UPromise is a your mileage may vary. Reader Rick has left data about his experiences and wasn’t very promising either. Does that stop me from wanting to apply for the card? No it still hasn’t, I still want it to play around for MSing.
