lilmotto 11-01-2011 11:07 AM

Can we load $25 onto the Fedex GC and then get an additional $25 added? Meaning get $25 free from Fedex Pay $25 then Get $25 free from AMEX?

I got one too. Just keep trying.

lotusblossom02 11-01-2011 11:21 AM

It definitely works right now. So many gave up because of the technical difficulties they had. Go get in if you haven't yet!

And, NO, you don't have to have an AMEX card to get in. There's TWO promotions going on. One is a credit to your AMEX card. The other is an AMEX gift card courtesy FedEx. These are INDEPENDENT of each other.

Are you talking about Fedex promo? If so, I kept refreshing until the "Get $25 Amex GC" tab showed up. It's on the left side on facebook. Then once again, I kept refreshing the sign-up page until the form showed up. IE didn't show the tab on facebook for me while Firefox showed the tab. If you are having trouble the tab to show up, you may want to try another browser. After filling the form and submitting it, I got the confirmation page and email a little later.

myamex 11-01-2011 11:22 AM

RIPPED OFF from all the other existing threads out there.
Karma whore.

taras82 11-01-2011 11:23 AM

Ah nevermind, I missed out. They're all out of cards.

iridium 11-01-2011 11:25 AM

Unfortunately, the last American Express® Shop SmallSM Gift Card was just claimed in the past few moments. You can still show your support for small business, however, by shopping at local businesses on November 26.

repitall 11-01-2011 11:30 AM

I think I got thru...says already registered...so will see if I get an e-mail.

junkxx 11-01-2011 11:33 AM

Facebook link has this message: Gift cards are no longer available but you can still get ready for Small Business Saturday.

You must not have anything else to do except sit in front of your computer hitting REFRESH. I wish I had that kind of time to kill.

I ordered 4, but they cancelled my fourth one. Looks like it's 3. Same thing happened to my girlfriend as well. But we're walking with $75 in free money! :)

You won't get a confirmation. But within 2-3 weeks after you receive your first card you'll either get:
1) instant credit on activation
2) an additional $25 gift card mailed to you.

Either way you get great money!

You don't need to be mean to me because you didn't get the deal. Just move on. There are other deals to get.

According to FAQ at Amex prepaid card website,

"How many Cards can a person order?

An adult over the age of 18 may order and manage up to three American Express Prepaid Cards in total (including if one is purchased for him/herself). Each American Express Prepaid Card User can have only one Card in his or her name."

You sound bitter. You can't get in on every deal and deals come around all the time. You might be one of the lucky ones another time.

Did you order all 4 under the same name and address and email or did you do something different for each one?

Ha, I was thinking for $25 it does worth putting my SSN and birthday out there on the internet, but finally couldn't resist seeing this deal on the first page everyday for weeks and got 4, 2 for me and 2 for hubby. What is wrong with me?

I used all the same name and address, I had the fourth denied. Since I got my additional giftcards, they've denied me to receive anymore, stating that there's a maximum of 3 per person.

Thanks, that is very good to know. I think I'll go ahead and grab a couple more for me and hubby then.

Just want to check - you received all 3 gift cards as a result of purchasing 3 separate prepaid cards under your name?

The number of cards you can get are YMMV but the CR rep told me straight up that I was applying for too many cards and that I'm limited to a total of 3 American Express Cards (Not including the 3 Additional Gifts) at any time without prior AMEX approval. Since I don't have an AMEX credit card, I was able to get 3. My girlfriend was only able to get 2 because she has a Costco AMEX. My good friend Rich was also able to get 3 because he doesn't have an AMEX Card. I'm assuming this is the answer to the age old question of "why do they need my SSN" - that's exactly why.

Hope that helps!!!

Thats correct. After about 2-3 weeks, I received all three of my AMEX $25 that I prefilled via Bank Transfer. These were sent via USPS. About 2 weeks after, I received 3 UPS Overnight Envelopes with 3 separate gift cards.

The original 3 should be Blue colored, while the other 3 are Golden w/ a Bow that says "GIFT CARD $25".

Seems like some people get their $25 linked on activation, but it depends on your state I think due to regulations or w.e.

Hope that helps.

How ungrateful of jgcollins! Here is someone who did the legwork to figure out how to get the deal to work so that you can save your precious time and not have to figure it out yourself... and you insult them for it?

And this is your 13th post since 2005? Climb back under your rock and go back to hibernation.

Yeeesh.

Are you talking about the free ones that were given out from FEDEX? Yes, those went quickly. So is the deal for the free gift card when you buy a gift card over now?

missyliu 12-10-2011 07:27 PM

Apply new Amex prepaid card, load it at minimum $25 and then you get $25 credit on this card.

Just received two $25 gift cards. Not sure if they are for the Prepayed cards promotion. If so they should have been 3 of them. Or maybe it is for enrolling for the att and Amex promotion? Can somebody please describe for me the gift cards/envelopes etc. you received for the prepared cards?

Edit: Well it looks they were for the Pepayed Cards. The third 25 gift card came the day after the first two.
