  1. thanks for the news. About that reminder, given that Amex gift cards are not pin-enabled, what’s the current thinking on how to use/liquidate these Amex cards? Anything other than “normal” spending at merchants? Any luck using them to purchase “gift” cards anywhere? (on-line or in stores?)

  2. Do these cards carry a $3.95 fee at staples? So probably
    it’s best to buy one $500 card rather than three $100 cards
    to save a little on fees?

  3. I’m also wondering how to liquidate these. I’m not really up to speed on selling GCs online. Up to now I used them for in store purchases with Costco, but they are about to switch to Visa, and I have enough AMEX GC $ to tide me over till then.

    Now what?

    Can I buy Costco cash cards online with them?

  4. Anyone know if Amex Gift Cards can be added to an Amex Serve card via a Serve App load or online load similar to adding funds via an Amex credit or charge card?
