We wrote earlier today about no-fee American Express gift cards and how they can help you meet minimum spending requirements, earn points for yourself and buy gifts for friends and family. One of the only drawbacks to the deal unfortunately, is that you still get stuck paying rather hefty shipping fees when you order the cards from the American Express website.
But after writing that post we stumbled across an update from Hustler Money Blog that includes free shipping promo codes for the gift cards, which makes the proposition a total win.
From Hustler Money Blog:
