I read more than a few people post that they didn't get the bonus gc's from the last deal and had to call. Then they credited $25 to the prepaid cards with no problem. Have a lot of people not gotten shipping confirmations for their cards days after the money has been withdrawn from their accounts. They're not in my spam folder.

I ordered 3.

I have a platinum Amex.

My wife does NOT.

My sister does NOT.

None of us got the cards yet it was ordered little while after thi post went live.

I called to check I GOT APPROVED and it was mailed out. So did my wife and sister.

So it looks as if you already have an Amex account , you qualify

Hope this helps.

Alright, I have never owned a AMEX card, but I got the 3 pre paid cards coming in the mail with $0 balance on all 3. Could I still sign up for an account/credit card then load the $25 on each and be qualified then?

I remember when Taco Bell was giving away 1 free regular Taco on tax day or something. The line was wrapped around the building and bleeding onto a major highway on an extremely dangerous intersection with a curve.
This is why I never take advantage of any of the free food deals. There are always huge crowds of freeloaders so the wait is long.

This AMEX thing seems like a good deal to get $25. I need to figure out if they have any partner ATMs that don't charge to withdraw money. (I know AMEX themselves doesn't have a fee.)

Since Costco only accepts American Express, can this be used to pay for gas at Costco? And what does "no overspending" mean? Does it automatically stops filling up gas at exactly $25 without telling the gas attendant you only want $25? What would happen if it goes past $25? Thanks.

Where can the American Express Prepaid Card be used? [americanexpress.com] The American Express Prepaid Card can be used at virtually any merchant that accepts American Express® Cards worldwide. This includes mail-order, online and in-store locations. You can also use it to withdraw cash from ATMs (American Express provides one free ATM withdrawal per calendar month. Thereafter, a fee of $2.00 is assessed against the balance of the Card. Please note: ATM owners/operators may also charge their own fees for each withdrawal.) The Card may not be used in casinos or for car rental reservations. The American Express Prepaid Card may not be used for illegal activities 1.

Can the American Express Prepaid Card have a negative balance? [americanexpress.com]
If a merchant authorizes a transaction for an amount greater than the American Express Prepaid Card User's actual available balance, the American Express Prepaid Card will generally be declined. However, in rare circumstances, a merchant may process a transaction without prior authorization, or an amount greater than a Card's actual available balance may be authorized. If this occurs, you may be notified to load more funds onto the Card, or make a direct payment to cover the negative amount, but you will not be charged an overdraft fee.
While this does not happen often, it is important to keep track of your balance and reload funds as needed. To help track your balance, the Card Purchaser and Card User can opt to receive alerts when the balance on the Card falls below $10. See Cardmember Agreement [americanexpress.com] for more details.

Gas purchases at the pump are usually pre-authorized for an upfront amount IIRC. Something like $75. Then you are only charged for what you use. Same type of thing for restaurant purchases where they are authorized for amount of bill plus 20%. It is why so many people can have overcharges with debit cards when there is not enough money in the account. I am sure that when you get the card they will give you some guidance on its use.

I would imagine it would work like most gift cards and just stop working when they hit their balance. i never see the cashier when i've used others.

There is no way to know for sure whether you will get the $25 bonus card.
