Through the end of the month of August, you can once again earn a $25 bonus gift card from American Express when you buy a pre-paid card, loaded with at least $200.
This has got to be one of my favorite offers ever – it’s free money. Literally free.
Don’t think you need a pre-paid card? Well, think of it this way. Let’s say your High Holiday budget is $400. Instead of putting $400 on a charge card or debit card, or taking out that amount in cash, you use the same $400 to buy two $200 gift cards.
For each card, you will get a $25 gift-card bonus. That’s $50 of FREE money just for buying your already budgeted High Holiday food and clothing on pre-paid American Express cards.
In addition to the free $25 bonus, there are lots of other beenfits to the pre-paid American Express cards.
- You get the same fraud protection and roadside assistance programs of regular American Express memberships.
- There no annual fees, no customer service fees, and no credit checks (although you do need to enter your social security number to buy the card).
- There are no transaction fees (it’s free to use the card). They even give you one free ATM withdrawal on the pre-paid card!
Fine Print: This special offer is valid on pre-paid cards purchased thru 8/31/12. Limit three $25 gift cards per bank account. Allow six weeks for the $25 gift card to arrive. Standard shipping is FREE.
Note: You don’t need a promo code (just leave that box blank). You will need to fund your card from a checking or savings account.
