Trying to use my Saks Fifth Amex Plat credit before Eoy. I know you’re not technically allowed to buy a gift card but does it still work/count towards the credit? Anyone tried recently?

Gift cards don’t trigger the spend, so no, you can’t.

R u using corporate card? Didn’t think that works with the Saks credit

Nope personal

You can absolutely buy a gift card for the credit to trigger but they only sell them in store

Havent tried myself (i bought skincare products for the SO to use up credit) but if you do go down the GC path, make sure to purchase the standard one as opposed to the e-gift. The latter takes you offsite which may not be credited as a saks purchase via amex

I’ve read that buying gift cards in a Saks store (which can then also be used at Off 5th) works, but buying them online doesn’t
