AFAIK this hasn't already been posted, but I just received this e-mail for a free $25 to be credited to your AMEX prepaid CC after you load it $25min. I like to use prepaid CC since I'm always shopping online and it's a bit safer. This is my first time posting a deal, so pls be nice, thx Smilie

DEAD as of Jan. 16

Promotion discount will show $0 during the order process even though you used the GIFT25A code. It make sense because you're not getting a discount. Instead, you may get a $25 gift card 4-6 weeks after your order is processed.

for those suspicious of the website address, just go to amex.com -> pre-paid cards and complete your app there. Just an additional layer of safety I think .
[No, go to americanexpress.com, amex.com is a stock exchange. (now part of NYSE)... lol]

Not available for those in Arkansas and Vermont. Residents of those two states can buy for others in a different state, but it can't be shipped to Arkansas & Vermont.

2. There is no free $25. This is not like the PASS50 promotion. This code is for a free $25 GIFT CARD. If Amex lets the targeted promotion provision slide, it should work out in this fashion:

Step 1: sign up using promo code.
Step 2: receive Prepaid Card from Amex
Step 3: fund Prepaid Card
Step 4: wait 4-6 weeks to receive a $25 GIFT CARD from Amex

Of course, it's all YMMV bc it's expressly a targeted promotion. But it's worth trying (i.e. the initial PASS50 deal was targeted and a bunch of SDers got in on that) The T&C simply ensure that the consumer has the Prepaid card active before Amex will pay out the bonus gift card.


READ the fine print for the Roadside Assistance - It doesn't appear to really be any 'assistance' at all - it states that the cardmember is responsible for paying for the services.

"2 Through Roadside Assistance, American Express may arrange for five (5) basic emergency roadside services to be provided to Cardmembers: (i) towing to nearest available repair shop or preferred destination depending provider availability; (ii) jumpstarts when a battery is dead; (iii) delivery of up to two (2) gallons of gas; (iv) locksmith service if keys are locked in the car; and, (v) changing of a flat tire if the car has a workable spare. All costs associated with these emergency roadside services are the responsibility of the Cardmember. These services are available when a Cardmember and a licensed driver are present, or the Cardmember is a licensed driver themselves. Services are available regardless of mileage from primary residence when traveling within the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Additional terms and conditions apply."



BEWARE: AMEX Customer Service told many of us that you must order and load the card with >$25, and then RELOAD the card before Nov 15, and then you qualify to receive a separate additional $25 AMEX gift card.


NOTE: When you order the card, make sure you include the promo code. It will NOT show any promotional discount during the order process. You will NOT get an additional $25 value added to your card. In most cases, you MUST RELOAD (add >$25) to the card to qualify for the additional $25 AMEX gift card. Don't wait around for the window to close - it's a prepaid card so it doesn't hurt you in any way to add $25 to it twice (once during initial order, once after receiving/activating).

Update 12/05: Just spoke to an AMEX rep on the phone and it looks like AMEX got in on the slickdeals thing. He said they will be matching the offer with a names database they sent the initial offers to before giving out the $25 bonus. He did mention Slick Deals Frown, so we should probably be down voting such offers in future so that the company does not get a sniff of it.

Update 01/02: It's 3 cards maximum for each purchaser. Each purchaser has to have a unique SSN and bank number. I did not have to reload the card to get my gift cards. I loaded it as part of the initial purchase. It took 5 weeks for my gift cards to arrive and I have not used the prepaid cards yet so there's no purchase needed to "activate" them.

I had a similar problem. I bought 3 prepaid cards but received only 2 gift cards. I called Customer Service and (after some research) they credited $25 to one of my prepaid cards. Happy that Amex made it right.
For me, it now be 2 month and 2 weeks since I load 3 cards. I only get 1 gift Frown

When I call Amex they say I do another promo in past. This NOT true. This my first promo. They put on hold for 20 minutes, then say they forwad my case to promo department Frown

Amex suck eggs for me

Amex is such an awesome crazy company.. I bought 3 cards.. But only received one free $25 card.. So called them today enquiring about the other 2... They credited me $25 each.. Big Grin
I ordered 3 a long time ago, got the first gift card, but haven't got the other 2. I called into the amex prepaid and they transferred me to servicing department?? The guy told me it was only 1 gift card per person even if you ordered more than 1? Who did you call/what did you say to get the others ??

I think AMEX will run a soft pull on your SSN and keep on sending credit card offers to your address if you are in their bracket credit score.
It is like selling your information to them, I think banks exchange information for a price.
AMEX pulled my credit. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I was told today that I am not eligible and will not receive the $ 25 gift card for this offer because it was only good for person who received the offer email from AX.Frown

about 4 weeks later I got an email saying I was ineligible for 25 dollar card. I called and they said because I did not get email offer.

I actually like the card though. I don't do credit cards anymore due to interest and I am staying debt free.

I received the same email. Waste of effort to apply for and fund this card.

NOTE: This post belongs in the more recent (Feb. 2012) AMEX prepaid thread.
