So i saw SW GC for sale @ OD/Staples/Markets etc. It got me thinking ... could I Buy those GC @ 5x UR points (either via Ink/Freedom) Pay remaining balance ($487 Airfare - $400 in GC) using Sapphire Preferred/SW at 2x Fly those flights & also get the points from flying. Also saw Marriott Cards; but since I never stay there; It didn't really matter to me. But in theory it would work the same right? 5x Stay + night credit + Points for staying.
