Gift Card Perks

American Express has jazzed-up its gift card program, now offering extras at 20 retailers, restaurants and other partners, such as a free dessert, two games of bowling for the price of one, or 5% to 20% off the purchase of merchandise. AmEx also added three new themed “Gift Cards” including “Gift Cards Especially for Kids,” “Especially for Teens,” and “Especially for Birthdays.” AmEx “Gift Cards” are available in denominations ranging from $25 to $500 and are replaceable if lost or stolen for a fee. “Specialty Gift Cards” come with extras related to the theme of the card. For example, recipients of the “Especially for Birthdays Gift Card” receive a free game at AMF Bowling lanes, $10 off a purchase of $50 or more at Foot Locker or Champs Sports, and access to the American Express Ticket Savings Center at Ticketmaster, among other choices.
