Update: This deal ends this week. People have confirmed success with additional user cards and with buying gift cards in store. People have also gotten credit regardless of whether they received an email confirmation of their spending.
You can use 4 AMEX cards to buy 3 of the $200 Visa cards, just have the cashier put $150 on each of your AMEX cards. The cost for the 3 Visa gift cards with fees is $620.85 less than $120 statement credit=$500.85.
From that point you can upload the $600 in Visa gift card to your Bluebird card for free at a Walmart ATM machine.
Or keep your life simple and buy gift cards for ShopRite, Amazon, gasoline, or any other purchase you’ll make anyway.

1. Register your card via the link above.
2. Use your registered card to make a single purchase of $150 in store or at ShopRite from Home by October 12, 2013.
3. Get $30 back on your statement.
This will work for all AMEX consumer and small business cards, even those issued by other banks like Citibank. It will also work for authorized user cards issued directly by AMEX as long as they are registered separately and receive their own confirmation email. It will not work for authorized user cards from other banks like Citibank for example as their authorized user cards have the same credit card number as the primary card and therefore can’t be registered separately. Prepaid cards and Bluebird are not eligible.
