Fine print states that it won't work on reloadable, promotional, or Amex cards issued by other institutions.
I tried anyways with my Tiger Direct rebate AMEX card. It wasn't eligible.
But for those who can get it to work, the fine print also states that if you're a current member, an additional year of membership is tacked on at the end of your current membership. It doesn't restart your membership on the current date.
Also, you have until May 2014 to register an AMEX card to get the free year of membership, so there's not rush to fill it out now.
I just logged in to my ShopRunner account and was asked to enter my AMEX card # to see if I qualify for another year of free membership extension. When I entered my AMEX business card, my membership was immediately extended by another year, (not from today but from the original membership expiration date).
Check it out and get your free ShopRunner membership for another year.
It might not allow you to use a prepaid amex card to get the initial 1 year, but after I used my real amex, I added a prepaid amex, set it to the default, then removed my real amex and still got the extension.
I picked up an Amex prepaid card from Walmart a few months ago to be able to get in on Amex concert presales. I registered it to shoprunner and it gave me the extra year.
Pre-paid must be different than Gift Cards because I tried an Amex gift card I just received and no dice. One time I had to call the customer support for the gift card to have them add my address to the account in order to use it where I wanted to use it so perhaps if I did this with this gift card then maybe it might work. Hmmm... I'll be back,
