Amex Gift Card Details
Here’s just some basic information about American Express gift cards you should know beyond checking your balance at americanexpress.com/mygiftcard check balance:
- American express gift card balance does not expire
- Card balance should be used before a certain time
- Amex gift cards look like credit cards
These cards have a card number and expiration date which is the same setup as a typical credit card. They can be used for business or personal purposes. Logos and thank-you messages can be imprinted on the cards. A personal card is recommended for orders with five or fewer cards and comes in a less formal design.
Alternatively, you can send an e-gift card to your recipient. You can use plastic gift cards in person at locations that do not accept online gift cards. Using the card’s number and PIN online is possible for both plastic and e-gift cards.
