Cardpool sells Callaway gift cards at a 20% discount.  https://www.cardpool.com/buy-callaway-golf-gift-cards

Has anyone bought a bunch of these, then stacked a promo code?   Or is there some restriction of use that I'm not aware of?

Callaway X2 Hot driver 10.5* w/ Proforce V2 stiff shaft
TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 3W 15* w/ stock shaft
TaylorMade Jetspeed 3H 19* w/ stock shaft
Callaway X2 Hot 5-AW w/ Nippon NS Pro 950 stiff shaft
Callaway MD4 S-Grind 54* 58* w/ stock shaft
Nike Method MOD 60 putter

Callaway gift cards don't work at CPO, I believe.

Cardpool is a great site for selling as well.

I bought $2000 worth of gift cards from Best Buy on my best buy credit card.  I get triple rewards points, ends up worth $160 at Best Buy.

Sell them to Cardpool for 90 percent of the value at $1800 cash.

Great way to get an easy, cheap cash advance off your credit card.

Not following the math here.
(2000) on your credit card
+1800 cash from the site
+160 in Best Buy credit
= (40) in the hole? Plus a 2k balance on your card that will get charged interest?  

Just trying to figure out the deal. Sounds like 'no deal' at the moment.

Mizuno JPX 10.5*
Mizuno ST180 3w 15*
TM Burner Rescue 5 (24*)
Titleist 710cb (4-9)
Scratch 8820 (47*, 53*, 56*)
Odyssey White Hot Rx 9, Tour Snsr 140cc
Project(a)

**Right at single digits - gonna get better**
(9.3 at end of 2018!)

Cash advances off credit cards cost money, plus the interest on that card from borrowing.

So i can spend $2000 off my Best Buy credit card.  I get $480 back with triple points, not $160, sorry.  

Then I get $1800 in cash back within 7 days to put in my checking account.

It costs me $200 to borrow the money off selling the cards, and then before I get hit with any interest charges (30 days), the Best Buy card is paid off.

Its a nice option if you need extra cash and pay day is 7-10 days away.

If you live paycheck to paycheck.
