Where to buy American Express gift cards?

Postby doria1984 » Sat Feb 05, 2011 6:58 pm

(Updated 2013) Where can you buy American Express gift cards in person and for the BEST price? Are there any major chain stores like Wal-Mart, Target, CVS or grocery store chains that sell them? I don't want to buy online. I was trying to pick a gift card up last night and didn't see any when I checked at CVS but I didn't check the whole store. Will the American Express gift cards be sold with the other gift cards or will they be in a different department like the lottery?

CVS should sell them. Actually you can probably buy American Express gift cards at all of the places you listed.

At the grocery store I go to the Amex gift cards are near the candy bars during checkout, then there is another, bigger display in the store that has all of the different gift cards the store sells including the American Express.

For pricing I have no clue how much those cost.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

I have heard there may be promotions for an American Express gift card fee waiver that are run on occasion. That would come in handy right now for me as I was going to buy several for the grandkids for Valentines day. The website charges a $3.95 fee for $25, $50, $100 or $200 then there is S&H charges in addition. If there is a fee waiver please tell me how to get it. If there is not a waiver available will it be the same $3.95 price to buy the gift cards at a store?

Buy them through BigCrumbs.com and get 1.6% cash back. There are also sometimes coupon codes for free shipping.

your local mall should have an american express booth. They sell both the ones you can only use in the Mall and the 1 you can use everywhere, but they have fees on them.
