AMEX Prepaid Increases Gift Card Bonus to $25

A few weeks ago I wrote about Amex giving away $10 complimentary gift cards to cardholders who signed up for a new Amex Prepaid Card in July and loaded it with $50. Well, we recently received word that Amex has just upped the ante in August for those who are willing to load their new prepaid card with $200 at the time of order. Here's how the new deal works:

  1. Apply for an American Express Prepaid Card by the end of August (no credit check is required, so don't worry about your credit scores)
  2. Load it with $200 at the time of your order
  3. Wait six weeks to receive your $25 gift card from Amex

And unlike most prepaid cards, it won't cost you a dime to load the Amex Prepaid Card through direct deposit or use it on a monthly basis. There are no monthly or annual fees, no purchase fees, and no overdraft fees to worry about. The lack of fees is actually quite amazing when compared to most prepaid cards! That's what makes it the best prepaid debit card on the market in my opinion. So if you're in the market for a new prepaid debit card, consider taking advantage of this new deal and scoring a free $25 for some summer fun. Check out our most recent review of the Amex Prepaid Card for more of the details.
