This offer is only available for another couple of days and I didn’t want you to miss out on FREE money.
Through the end of the June, you can earn a FREE $25 bonus gift card from American Express when you buy a pre-paid card of $200 or more.
Think this sounds like a bunch of work?
Well, look at it this way…If your grocery budget is $400 for the month of July, instead of putting $400 on a charge card or debit card or taking out cash, you can put the $400 on two pre-paid gift cards instead.
And even better, you will receive a $25 gift card bonus per $200…so that’s like $50 of FREE money that you can use for another budget item or to splurge on something else. (Or a 12.5% return on your investment.)
(And this is an especially good deal for my COSTCO loving friends…since they only take American Express.)
Added benefits include, the same fraud protection and roadside assistance programs of regular American Express memberships, one FREE ATM withdrawal on the pre-paid card, and no annual or service fees.
This is an awesome way to limit your spending on any budget item – food spending, vacation spending, clothes spending, etc. AND you’ll be getting a nice $25 kiss to splurge on something extra.
Fine Print: This special offer is valid on pre-paid cards purchased thru 6/30/12. Limit one $25 gift card per user name. (So do one in your name and one in a significant other’s name.) Allow six weeks for the $25 gift card to arrive. Standard shipping is FREE. You will need to fund your card from a checking or savings account. And you’ll need to provide your social security number. (Due to Homeland Security.)
I just did this with some of the cash in our “Christmas Envelope”. It is a great way to get a little extra for Christmas with money I already had available.
