American Express Cashback Credit Card

Options
Hi All,

My friend has just got his Amex Cashback card. Basically he has to pay X amount a month rent and usually transfers this from his current account to landlord. He wants to know if he can transfer it from his Amex so that he earns cashback.

Any advice would be appreciated

    Not without paying a fee that will wipe out the cashback earnt (in fact it'll be more.)
    Conjugating the verb 'to be":
    -o I am humble -o You are attention seeking -o She is Nadine Dorries

    Possibly via PayPal, but the commission charges and exchange rate (Paypal handles Amex in US$) will negate any savings.
