Gyft No Longer Coding As 5x On Chase Ink Plus/Cash? Datapoints Wanted

Earlier today MtM posted an article ‘Is 5X Earning on Gyft With Chase Ink Dead? We Need Your Data Points‘. Gyft often has gift cards on sale and previously as long as you checked out through PayPal and used the Chase Ink Cash/Plus it would code as 5x points. It looks like something has changed on/around 7/31 and these purchases are no longer earning 5x.

Current datapoints:

  • Did code as 5x:
    • 7/28: 1,
    • 7/29: 1, 2, 3,
    • 7/30: 1,
  • Didn’t code as 5x:
    • 7/30: 1,
    • 7/31: 1, 2,
    • 8/1: 1, 2, 3,

It’s possible that this is temporary or that the coding will revert back to 5x, but at this stage it doesn’t look good. Please only post your datapoints if you remembered to go through PayPal to check out.

I believe you mean the Chase Ink Cash, not the CIP…

It was with CIC+Paypal, not CIP+Paypal. You may wanna correct the title.

I think you mistakenly use “Preferred”, instead of “Plus”

I can’t believe it’s lasted this long.

Was it coding as utility like PPDG? I’ve never understood what incentives these companies/chase had in misclassifying the transaction. Perhaps lower interchange rates? Comments/explanations welcomed!

Maybe the CEO had a lot of friends with Ink cards.

Its in the merchants favor to miscategorize into a rewarding category. I used to love giftcardmart, as they argued they were office supplies.

Couldn’t beat 5x at Sam’s Club either. I always bought a Walmart gc while going to the checkout line at Sam’s Club. I don’t know any other venue to get a Walmart gc at 5X now.

Clearly not 5x, but walmart gives 0.5x united on the MPX app and 0.5% on raise pay on top of credit card rewards. Interestingly, samsclub.com gives 5% with raise pay with $20 the only denomination available ($1 back). Those are probably the only other instant GC options other than secondhand card apps (raise/cardpool). Samsclub.com cards do NOT work in the walmart app or sams in store.

Time for somebody to start a new gift card site with a misclassified category.
