One free ATM withdrawal per calendar month (limited to $400 maximum withdrawal per day). So, yes $200 can be withdrawn by ATM free of charge in the first transaction of the month. You still have to pay any fees the ATM operator would charge, though.


Residents of Alaska & Vermont may just ignore this thread, this deal is NOT for you.


Steps to verify funding bank account for fresh/new AMEX prepaid card owners:
1. go to: www.americanexpress.com/prepaid
2. then click on "Set Up Account"; these are near the "Log In" buttons
3. on the next screen, select the appropriate choice between 2 options
4. complete the required info and you should be good to go



A "Card Purchaser" can order/have up to three cards, one for each "Card User".
One who orders a card is a "Card Purchaser", not a "Card User".
The name that appears on the card is a "Card User".
It is true that if you order a card for yourself, you would be both a "Card Purchaser" and a "Card User".

The limit is 3 GC per "Card Purchaser".
The limit is 1 GC for a named "Card User".
Nowhere does it say limit of 1 per "Card Purchaser".

Amex wants the birth date of the "Card User".
Amex wants both the SSN and birth date of the "Card Purchaser".



The distinction between "Card Purchaser" vs "Card User" is also important when you activate the card (at least as of last time):

Terms & Conditions for new Card User:

Offer expires on June 30, 2012. To receive a $25 American Express® Gift Card ('Gift Card'), you must load $200 or more at the time you order an American Express Prepaid Card ('Card'). Card orders must be received by 11:59 PM ET June 30, 2012.
Limit of one $25 Gift Card per new Card User named on a Card.
Offer valid for all new Card orders with a single $200 load, including additional/supplemental accounts associated with an existing Card purchaser's account.
Card must be active when offer is fulfilled. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
Limit one (1) offer per Card.
After qualifying for this offer, please allow 6 weeks for the $25 Gift Card to be mailed to the Card purchaser. American Express reserves the right to refuse or to delay the delivery of Gift Card if it has determined or suspects that fraud has been committed in connection with the Card or this offer. American Express reserves the right to terminate the offer at any time if it determines, in its sole discretion, that causes beyond its control have destroyed or severely undermined the integrity, administration, security, and/or feasibility of the offer. (<- that's legalize for "the SlickDeal effect" LMAO) Gift Card terms and conditions apply.



Clause (i) below is the most troubling. If you have never ordered a card, everyone thinks the T&C above applies. But when you fill out the form to order a card, it is clear you are a "Card Purchaser". Would you then be caught by clause (i) below? Why is clause (i) even there?



For existing Card Purchaser, login to see Terms & Conditions:

Offer expires on June 30, 2012. To receive a $25 Gift Card,
(i) you must be an existing American Express Prepaid Card or bluebird ('Card') purchaser on or before May 31, 2012,
(ii) load $200 or more, at one time, on any single Card during 6/1/2012- 6/30/2012, and
(iii) Card must be active at the time the Gift Card is fulfilled. Auto-reloads and/or direct deposits set up prior to 6/1/2012 are not eligible for the $25 Gift Card. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
Limit one (1) offer per Card. Please allow 6 weeks, after qualifying load, for the $25 Gift Card to be mailed to the Card Purchaser. American Express reserves the right to refuse or to delay payment of the bonus if it has determined or suspects that fraud has been committed in connection with the Card or this offer.
Limit three (3) bonuses per Card purchaser - one per Card user, up to three users. American Express reserves the right to terminate the offer if it determines, in its sole discretion that causes beyond its control have destroyed or severely undermined the integrity, administration, security, and/or feasibility of the offer. Offer is subject to cancellation at any time. Gift Card terms and conditions apply.



"load" vs "transaction": You must load $200 or more by 6/30/2012. When you go to Account Details, there is "Load Funds". The act of loading $200 occurs when you click on "Load Funds". The act of loading $200 is not the same as American Express finally depositing the loaded amount onto your card. The date that American Express finally deposits the loaded amount is the "transaction" date, and can be seen under "View Transaction History". The two events are different, occur at different times, and correspond to different actions by different parties.



Amex still hasn't straightened out the last failed FP deal:
http://slickdeals.net/f/3960478-AMEX-prepaid-card-Get-25-gift-card-after-1st-reload?v=1



WARNING!!!!

Amex locks your account if you attemt to see a PIN more than 2 times in 24 hours.
Therefore,
If you ordered 3 new cards, DO NOT ATTEMPT to see the PIN numbers for all 3 cards on the same day. You need to check 2, then wait 24 hours and check the third.

Last time it was targeted via email with no reference to the bonus on the actual site. This time it appears directly on a banner.

$75, I guess.

Oddly, the terms seem to state that you need to be a prepaid card holder as of May 31, 2012 for this to work. The terms and that banner seem to be at odds regarding new sign ups.
