American Express Gift Card Fee Waiver Promotion Code

Email  Print Print  

American Express Gift CardsA lot of credit card promotions require that you spend a certain amount within a short period of time (say, $3,000 in three months). What if you don’t spend that much in such a short period? There are very few options out there for those folks who want to take advantage of these promotions but don’t want to bankrupt themselves buying things they don’t need. You can buy $1 coins from the Mint and try to deposit them at the bank (against the terms of service, but money is money)… but that’s a pain.

Fortunately, you can always buy American Express gift cards and simply “shift” your spending. American Express gift cards are gift cards you can use anywhere American Express is accepted and a valuable tactic if you need to accelerate your spending. The downside is that each card will cost you $3.95 plus $5.95 shipping.

However, they are offering a Father’s Day promotion code that waives the $3.95 fee – EMDADWL (expires 9/30/2011). You can also get the $5.95 fee waived if you sign up for their free next-day shipping program called Premium Shipping Plan (just cancel afterwards).

It’s a lot of hoops to jump through but it might be worth it.

    Not much of a hoop IMHO – definately worth it if you need to spend $ to get a sign up bonus.

    Pair this with the Citi card offer a couple posts back and it’s easy money.
