Purchases of Wish cards online still work.

Previously, Target and Kmart would code as 3x in-store. Is that still true, and/or does it apply to online channels? Annoyingly, Kmart online still doesn't take gift cards.

Old post, but figured would be useful in the future. This is from the AMEX site for platinum edge

I have never received 3x at Kmart and I have held the edge card for many years. If you got them in the past I think you were lucky.

I agree. Pre-Amex devaluation I used to use Coles/Myer giftcards to get round this but the difference between Charge and Edge is now so small I don't bother
