You can actually get 4% off Amazon GC when you use your PayTM points on the app. You can then proceed to use ebates when you shop. Probably another 1-3% there.
My 3 cents.

I thought when they give you cash back, they base it on the category of the product not the location you buy... Maybe I am mistaken.

They are using merchant category codes. So It is not even _where_ you buy but more like, where do you pay. For example costco is not classified as grocery, only as Shopping & Services. But costco/shell a gas station is "Gas station" no matter what you pay for.

I got this deal couple time last month. Which come down to before 3% ebates + 2% Amex cash back + whatever % ebates when I make purchases at Amazon.
The best deal was Shell AirMiles promo just ended June 3, which get 110 AirMiles for purchase $100 GC (Which I purchase Amazon and LCBO).
Too bad shell end it early.

This is the 2nd best deal.

My 3 cents.
but at PayTM, you have to pay via your bank account, which you don't get credit card points.

lol. Why does the ebates giftcard website use different login credentials than the normal ebates site? Why is it even a different site?

Because Ebates actually sends you to cardswap to purchase the gift cards, as they don't actually sell you the gift cards

Anyone knows if there is a specific day that they changed their deals (percentages) or could be anydays?

What I find hilarious about Ebates giftcardshop (cardswap) is that, for exactly the same card, you can get different cash back rates:

Ordering any of these gift cards results in the exact same PC Gift card being sent:
  • 1% - Atlantic Superstore
  • 1.5% - Dominion
  • 2.5% - Extra Foods
  • 1.5% - Fortinos
  • 1.5% - Independent
  • 1.5% - Loblaws
  • 1.5% - Maxi
  • 1.5% - No Frills
  • 1.5% - Provigo
  • 1.5% - Real Canadian Superstoe
  • 1% - Valumart
  • 1% - Wholesale Club
  • 1.5% - Zehrs
I feel so bad for those folks who pick the "right" store and get less.

Yup, I do this even though my card only has 2% on groceries. 2% is better than zero. In this case I'll just add ebates on top.

If I buy the gc from ebates gc store, then use the gc to buy something from amazon.ca
If ebates has 2% cash back from amazon, that means I will get 5% back in total, correct?

Yes, you need to link your Amex card to Paypal and use Paypal / Amex card to pay eBates giftcardshop.

Mobile, printable and reloadable gift cards (ie. Amazon giftcard) will be delivered to your email within 1-2 business days.
Physical gift cards will be delivered to your billing address about 1-2 weeks.
