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.
American Express is currently offering gift cards with no fees for the holidays. Typically, Amex gift cards can cost between $3.95 and $6.95 per card, so the offer is particularly good for those of us who want to buy gift card in lower denominations (thus raising the effective percentage fee) and for those of us who are just generally terrible at buying actual gifts for friends and family.
But perhaps the best part of these no-fee gift cards is that they can be used to meet the minimum spending requirements for a credit card sign-up bonus, meet spending thresholds, or just keep earning points on your rewards or airline miles cards. You can use any credit card to purchase the gift cards, which can be valued at $20 all the way up to $3,000.
