Last month American Express came out with the fee free gift card offer for Mother’s day. They haven’t forgotten the Fathers, because they are now offering a similar promotion for Father’s Day. You can now order a gift card from American Express with no purchase fees. Even thought Father’s day is June 17, 2012, the promotion code is valid through August 15, 2012.
How To Purchase
- You can purchase the fee free gift cards over at American Express
- Make sure you use promotion code EMDADCM

When Is This Offer Not Good
Saving $3.95 is great, but leaving 1.4% on the table to save such a small amount is not great.
The Big Crumbs website offers 1.4% cash back on gift card purchases. So if you are making a gift card purchase over $300, consider making the purchase through Big Crumbs instead, as the 1.4% cash back will exceed the $3.95 savings.
If you are making a smaller everyday purchase of $25 or $50, consider using the Father’s Day promotion code above to save the $3.95 fee.
This may be a good way for you to personalize a Father’s day American Express gift card and show him how much you care.
