UPDATE: Today, 7/31/12, is the very last day to take care of this awesome offer (best one of the month!!)
Two weeks ago, I received my two FREE $25 American Express gift cards from the previous AmEx offer. (They are going directly into our iPad Savings Fund.) These American Express offers don't come around too often, and they are such fantastic freebies. Just a reminder to take advantage of this no-brainer offer. It's also a great idea for traveling, sending kids off to college or seminary or yeshiva, or even a last minute wedding present!
If you have any hesitation or question regarding this offer, please feel free to contact me.
--------------------------------------------------------------------I loved the American Express prepaid card offer in June; easiest money I made all month. Some of your wrote to me saying that you would have loved to take advantage of the offer but $200 was too much to even move around for a reward. Well, guess what?
American Express has come out with a brand new offer for July. Order an American Express Prepaid Card, load $50 or more at the time of order, and receive a free $10 gift card.
I love these supereasy offers. For the price of moving around fifty bucks, you get an extra ten.
The American Express pre-paid card spends just like cash wherever regular American Express cards are accepted, with no fees. (I have been using ours at Costco.) You even get the fraud protection and roadside assistance programs of regular American Express memberships. Standard shipping on the prepaid card is free. There are no annual fees, no monthly fees, no customer service fees, no overdraft, inactivity, or foreign exchange frees, and no credit checks to get it (though you will need to enter your social security number), no overdraft fees (you spend what you load on the card), no transaction fees, and you even get one free ATM withdrawal per month. As with the other offer make sure that your card is still active (leave at least $1 on each card) until you receive the free gift card, as the card needs to be active in order to receive the bonus gift cards. This offer is one of those rare No-Brainers.
(Even better, in the terms of the offer, they state "Offer valid for all new Card orders with a single $50 load, including additional/supplemental accounts associated with an existing Card purchaser’s account."
That means that even if you took advantage of the June offer and bought a card, loaded $200 on it and qualified for the $25 free gift card, you can still qualify for this offer and get a new prepaid card, load $50 on it and receive a $10 gift card. I wanted to be sure, so I called American Express and they verified that you could qualify for the new offer even if you took advantage of last month's offer.)
The special $10 gift card offer ends 7/31/12. You do not need to already have a American Express card to qualify for this offer. You do not need to enter a promo code as long as you click through this link. Limit one $10 gift card per user named on the card. There are zero hidden charges.
