The Offer

Find this offer in the Amex Offers section of your login

  • Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $200+ in one or more transactions online at AMEXGIFTCARD.COM by 12/31/2019.

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid online at Amexgiftcard.com only.
  • This offer is for American Express® Gift Cards and Business Gift Cards. Excludes the following types of orders or prepaid Cards issued by American Express: 1) Bulk orders over $100K, 2) Reloadable Gift Cards, 3) logo Gift Cards, 4) any American Express issued prepaid Card not sold or fulfilled specifically via Amexgiftcard.com, or 5) Gift Cheques.
  • Please note that Gift Cards purchased on Amexgiftcard.com cannot be shipped in the states of HI and VT.

Our Verdict

They put out an offer like this semi-regularly; useful for holiday gifting and such. There are purchase fees and shipping fees which would eat into any profit from doing this deal, though there are often promo codes to waive one of those fees (see below). It used to make sense as a profit scheme since there were portal incentives to buy these gift cards, but Amex gift cards no longer appears on shopping portals.

Promo Codes:

  • AG1019EB works on business gift cards to waive purchase fee through 11/30
  • Let us know about other promo codes and we’ll add them here

Amex: Don’t buy gift cards if you don’t want to be scrutinized by RAT for shutdowns

Also Amex: Here’s an incentive to buy more giftcards

Nearly useless. In the best case, you can get shipping fee waived by using a promo code, so you only need to pay $3.95 purchase fee. To liquidate this card, using the standard Plastiq 2.5% fee, you have to pay ~$5. So your profit would be $1.05 if this purchase does not earn points/cash back.

If it doesn’t earn points / cash back , including the code to remove purchase fee, it is a 0.5% return on spend.

In the past, I have found Amex gift cards extremely difficult to deal with since you can’t add an address and phone number to them to use online.

Any address or phone number will do.

How to liquidate them? Venmo does not work anymore right?

maybe use it to buy staple visa/master when they have fee-free promo.

I’ve tried this – My local Staples won’t let me buy VISA/MC gift cards with other gift cards

But they should let you use them to buy paper, toner, chairs or other office supplies in the store.

That’s like regular spending then….why buy AMEX GC in 1st place then?

$9 shipping fee… in the past there were promo codes that wiped off all fees

This used to be fantastic with multiple AU’s and Amex’s fee-free shipping program. Sadly now even though I can liquidate with minimal difficulty, I am not going to waste my time.

Need free shipping code. $9 to ship is ridiculous

Mike

why not use custom amount $199 to bring shipping cost down to $6?

bc it needs to be a total of 200 to get the 10. if you buy a card to make up for the difference, the fee is 4. just not worth it.

Sophie

Including shipping fee total will be 205 should be able to trigger the offer

PHONE501 and PHONE502 work to remove the purchase fee on personal gift cards. I can’t find anything for free shipping
