One very important thing to remember with this card is the fraud protection AMEX offers on their prepaid card. It is not as easy to get your money back as they would lead you to believe. If your card is lost or stolen and someone uses it, it takes about 2 months to get your money back. And if you lost a grand to fraud that can hurt waiting two months for your money. And another thing, be careful where you use this thing. They can steal your numbers from the magnetic strip and make a new card and you will never know it until it's too late. Just FYI

Yeah thats why the last time i took this offer, i only loaded 25$ (minimum required to get the bonus card) and used it only at places where the transaction was more than 25$. Sort of only one time use cards for me.

Important question that nobody has answered yet:

For people who ordered cards last time, did you cancel those before ordering new cards with this current promo?

I've seen people post that they ordered 3 last time and 3 this time. However, since each SSN can only manage 3 cards at a time, did you have to cancel your old prepaid cards?

I feel this is important to address because if someone closes the old prepaid cards then orders new ones, it could raise concern and cause AmEx to reject the application.

I have one prepaid from last time and am debating whether to cancel it and order 3 more cards, or just order 2 cards and not risk it.

Once more: is it necessary to cancel your old prepaid cards before using this new promo? If so, will canceling your old prepaids then ordering new ones cause your order to be rejected?

So if we did the Gift25A promo, were still eligible for this even though they ask for SS#..
yes i think so, it's the only real way to make sure you're not making multiple for one person

I don't think anybody can give you a definitive answer. But if it says one person can only manage 3 cards and you already have 3 cards from before then I think you'd have to cancel the 3 you got before. 3 + 3 = 6 right?

Exactly.

But people are talking about ordering more cards this time without mentioning canceling their old cards.

And I think that canceling then ordering again might raise concern from AmEx. I'm looking for someone who has done this to post their results.

The thing is, I don't think anybody knows what will happen because this is only the second time they've done this promo.

Bingo.

Now the question is whether canceling old cards then reordering new ones will still raise red flags or will go through without issue.
