Not sure about Revolut, but let's just say that Curve has some interesting features...
It most certainly does! Given that there's a fairly obvious loophole, do you have any experience in whether that results in a ban / any consequences if you exploit it?
Not yet...but if you really valued your relationship with Curve (i'm not sure why you would particularly) it would probably be prudent to give it a miss.
Well, with today's news, it looks like it's the beginning of the end...
Could be - interesting to see how things shake down in practice over the next week or so.
Damn looks like I'm late to the party on this one (Curve). Does the Oyster card trick from the beginning of this thread still work?
https://www.thegiftcardcentre.co.uk/ accepts PayPal - so in theory, if you needed to meet a bonus target, you could purchase a storecard with Amex for use in subsequent months.
Gift cards can definitely be a good idea to bring spending forward, though Zeek tends to work out quite a bit better (can also use Paypal) as the cards are usually discounted and many of them are digital so don't have postage/transaction fees.
You should get £5 for signing up too if you use a referral link - this is mine: https://nv63b.app.goo.gl/FzVR
Sorry, what was the "today's news" ?
thank you for your tips!

Thanks for this
ha that''s brilliant
What does everyone think of this as a possibility.
Would it be possible to purchase products from a business who are able to process Amex cards, get the card charged for say £1000 but then cancel and have the business refund you by a different method like bank transfer or cash. You can then use that money to pay off the Amex bill and still gain 1000 points (or 1500 for BA premium). The problem is i'm not sure which businesses will do this as I know you normally have the refund processed to the original payment card.
I do remember about 6 months I purchased something from Wilko with my Visa debit card but when I came to return the item my card that i originally paid with had expired and I just inserted a different debit card and they still processed the refund without questioning anything. I wonder if the same could happen using Amex to purchase and then a debit to take the refund ?
I'm new to all this but I suspect this has been asked before.
Let me know your thoughts.
Isn't there easier way to make money than these somewhat petty manipulations?
Well that's the entire basis of this website and forum
No reason why it shouldn't work - assuming you can find a retailer willing to refund by a different method and you can be bothered to do it.
Haha - from petty manipulations mighty oaks (or first class flights anyway!) can be born. But yes, you're absolutely right - it's always very important to factor the time and effort involved in things.
