Ratings (5 out of 5)

The American Express Consumer Gift Card is by far the most widely accepted and highly sought after gift card on the market. The cards can be personalized for gift giving with names and photographs. They are offered in monetary increments and can be sent to almost anywhere in the US, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

These gift cards are easy to use and they are great for gift giving. The card must be signed and registered with American Express for use online and at retailers. The American Express gift card has an added feature called a bundle. This is because you can get many great discounts by using the card online at the shops registered on the American Express Network.

You can purchase a gift card at almost any Bank or go online to the American Express portal. Your cards can be delivered in most cases in as little as two business days. A bit longer for personalized cards.
