American Express Launches Amex Express Checkout - $10 Statement Credit at Select Merchants

Update 3: AMC gift cards can be sold for $6.50 to ABC gift cards so that's another one.  Groupon gift cards can be bought but I don't know if they can sold as eGift Card anywhere.

Update 2:  Within 20 minutes the eGift Card arrived and I immediately sold it to ABC Gift Cards for $7.70.  Very quick transaction!  I tried to buy a second one with a new account and newegg cancelled my order.  They said one order per 48 hours of the same item.  So I guess this will be of limited benefit until we find a new gift card worthwhile to buy.

Update:  Newegg sells Visa Gift Cards (I would buy the $50 version for the greatest percentage back with a $2.99 shipping charge) and other third party gift cards.  I would buy the eGift Cards if possible to save on shipping.
$10 Home Depot eGift Card can be sold to ABC Gift Cards for 77% so you should get $7.70 for free.

Extrabux (My referral link) gives 1.5% cashback and doesn't exclude gift cards from the cashback so you should earn 1.5% extra cashback.
