If you are looking for an easy way to make $25, check out this offer from American Express: Get a FREE $25 American Express Gift Card when you order an American Express Pre-Paid Card and load at least $200 to it by June 30, 2012 (tomorrow!).
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. Plus, you get a $25 American Express Gift Card as a bonus, which can buy a box of diapers, pay for dinner out or add to your 2012 Christmas budget!
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 $200 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 June 30, 2012. As with all online offers, please read all the fine print available on the website before purchasing.
