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?)

That will work nicely with the “$25 off $100 or more” offer I have from AMEX offers.


Have you tried using split payment for this, by any chance? I have the offer on several cards…


Isn’t AmexOffer “$25 off $100” only for staples.com and this offer only in-store?


You are correct, and I’m really glad you mentioned it!


The Amex offer that I received has to be use online and this offer has to be in store. Sadly

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?


I believe the highest denomination they carry is 200.


$200 VGC in store and $300 VGC on staples.com

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?


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?


Similar deal is back. 300+ visa gc and get 15 visa gc rebate. 6/19-25/2016.
