If you’re in the mood to jump through a few small hoops to get a $10 gift card from American Express, you’re in luck. For July, American Express is running a promotion where you can get a $10 gift card from American Express when you get a new AMEX prepaid card and load it with $50. The promotion is that simple – order an American Express prepaid card, load it with $50 at the time you order it, and then wait six weeks to get your $10 gift card. Promotion ends July 31st, 2012.
There don’t appear to be any fees on the prepaid card to load or activate the card. You are permitted one free ATM withdrawal per month, then it’s $2 for each withdrawal after the first one.

As for the impact on your credit, American Express doesn’t report any information to the credit bureaus so it will not hurt or help your history (faq ).
