Summer is almost over and that means kids are going back to school. What better way to send your child back to school than with some gift cards in their wallet, with no fees of course. American Express has a fee free option to purchase gift cards through 9/15/2014 with no fees. There’s also another option to save even more money on larger gift card purchases which we’ll share below.

Fee Free Option

  • You can purchase the fee free gift cards over at American Express
  • Make sure you use promotion code SUN3

Saving $3.95 is great, but leaving cash back on the table to save such a small amount is not great.
