Yet another easy way to earn FREE money (check out the FREE $152 offered by ING DIRECT here)!
American Express has released a new deal for July that requires less money than June’s deal: Load $50 or more to an American Express Prepaid Card and get a $10 Gift Card.
You can add money to this card online, by phone from Direct Deposit, a bank account or with cash. There are no monthly or annual fees associated with this pre-paid card. You can also withdraw money from this card for FREE once a month.
This card has the benefits of a credit card but none of the interest-bearing risks, which could be helpful for managing a specific portion of your budget (like Christmas gifts, clothing or Amazon diaper purchases) or if you’d like your older child to be able to take responsibility for their online ordering. This is also perfect for those of you who do not use traditional credit or debit cards but would still like the ease of using a card to purchase online or you don’t want to use your regular debit card when getting online freebies that require you to enter a credit card number.
Once you order and load your card, it will take 2-3 days to process the transaction plus typical shipping time to get your card (which means the $50 is not immediately available). Limit one gift card per new card user. Your card must be active when the gift card is sent, which may take up to six weeks. This offer is valid through July 31, 2012. As with all online offers, please read all the fine print available on the website before purchasing.
