More on the American Express Prepaid Cards
ATM Use. You can use the Prepaid card at the ATM. There is one free ATM withdrawal per calendar month.
Fees. No monthly, overdraft, or purchase fees. There are also no fees for activating or reloading the American Express Prepaid Card.
Using a Prepaid Card. You can use the American Express Prepaid Card wherever you would use a regular American Express card.
Multiple cards. It appears that you are limited to 3 cards per person; but you can have only one card in your name. You’ll need to buy one for yourself and 2 for other people. That’s how the $25 sign up bonus x 3 is possible for $75! Just be sure to do the sign up in 3 separate transactions.
Green Dot MoneyPak. There could be some room for some extra cash back here too. If you purchase a GreenDot MoneyPak at a drugstore using a cash back credit card, you might be able to squeeze some extra free money out of the deal.

Can’t complain about a free $25. People should be applying for this and then just cancelling it if they don’t really need a prepaid card. Thanks for sharing this Madison!
I read this may be a targeted offer and only available to those it was sent to. Have you been able to confirm it works for all?
You are correct, it is only available to those it was sent to directly.
This is not true. I purchased the card, as a matter of fact I purchased the limit of 3 and was just told by American Express that none of us are eligible for the promotion. It is only for those it was sent directly to, so I guess it would be better if you checked that information out before passing it on to others. Thank you.
Yes, this is such a bummer. I haven’t received my bonuses either. It looks like people are reporting getting the same email on both Fatwallet (the source) and Slickdeals (http://slickdeals.net/f/396047.....1st-reload?).
It’s always a shame if a bonus deal doesn’t work out. And it’s a bit of a catch 22: If I wait to test them out myself before I share it with readers, then the deadline will have passed once I know it’s a success. But if I share it before I get my bonus, then we all risk that the deal doesn’t go through.
Hopefully, we’ll win a lot more than we lose on. (And luckily, since we didn’t spend anything, we didn’t lose any money on this one.)
I appreciate your feedback. I may consider only including bonus deals in the future where I’m working directly with the company, so I know the deal will work for everyone… although, then we risk losing out on some potential deals… I’ll have to think about this some more. Thoughts anyone?
