FAQs

 

Do gift cards expire?

Gift card funs never expire

If the funds do not expire, what is the “valid thru” date on the front of the Card?

The “valid thru” date on the front of the Card is the date through which your physical plastic card may be used. This date is required to process transactions at merchants that request a plastic expiration date. Even if the “valid thru” date has passed on the Card, its Available Balance remains unchanged and intact. In order to keep making purchases with your Available Balance, after a Card’s “valid thru” date has passed, please call 1-877-297-4438 for a free replacement Card.

 

Where can the Card be used? Are there any usage restrictions?

The Card may be used at merchants and retailers in the United States that accept the American Express Card (“Merchants”). The Card cannot be used for ATM cash withdrawals or for recurring billing charges (such as monthly utilities or subscriptions). You may use the Card to make final payments, but may not be able to use the Card to make reservations or deposits (e.g., car rental or hotel reservations).Except where required by law, the Card is not redeemable for cash. The Card may not be used for unlawful purposes. 

How do I check my Available Balance?
The value on the Card at any time is its “Available Balance.” You may check your available balance at americanexpress.com/mygiftcard or by calling Customer Service at 1-877-297-4438.
What if the Card is lost or stolen?
