    Does anyone have a good contact source for American Express?

    American Express is now offering a gift card. Awesome option, not only would this card take over the industries gift card and or gift certificate industry but I want a cut of that action.

    As I do not see any links for this option, wondering if affiliates are going to be a part of this awesome opportunity?

    Here are the details:

    NEW YORK, October 10, 2002 -- American Express today announced the launch of an exciting addition to its portfolio from the Global Travelers Cheques and Prepaid Services Group. The American Express Gift Card can be redeemed at all retailers that accept the American Express® Card and makes an ideal solution for the upcoming holiday season – ensuring that recipients can get just what they want, from where they want it. The Gift Card is embossed with the recipient’s name and fits easily in a wallet, just like the American Express Card. It arrives with a personal message from the gift-giver in an attractive gift envelope.

    The American Express Gift Card is the perfect gift because it can be used at a wide range of retailers in the United States that accept the American Express Card. It allows recipients to choose from almost any store to find the gifts that they most want. Compared to gift cards offered by individual retailers, the American Express Gift Card can be used for purchases at any retailer who welcomes the American Express Card. Moreover, one Card can be used a number of times, at different retailers, until the funds are depleted. Also, because the Card arrives with the recipient’s name embossed on it, the American Express Gift Card offers additional security against loss or theft. Available in amounts from $25 – $500, American Express Gift Cards are available online.

    “This exciting new product builds on our long tradition of innovation to meet the various needs of consumers,” said Randall Beard, vice president and head of marketing for the American Express Global Travelers Cheques and Prepaid Services Group. “The new Gift Card leverages our strong merchant network, superior customer service infrastructure and the peace of mind that is synonymous with American Express.”

    American Express is a leader in prepaid products. The new Gift Card is the latest addition to the American Express prepaid services portfolio. In addition to the 111-year old American Express Travelers Cheque, the preeminent brand welcomed worldwide, the company also offers Cheques for Two, Gift Cheques, the Be My Guest dining card, as well as a range of corporate incentive prepaid products, through American Express Incentive Services. In recent months, American Express announced enhanced services for Travelers Cheque customers with passport and credit card replacement assistance. The company continues to invest in expanded distribution channels for prepaid products to make purchasing easier, including online sales and through major partners in the travel industry. In addition, under an agreement reached earlier this year, former sellers of Citicorp Travelers Cheques have begun to sell American Express Travelers Cheques.

    The only thing i know about American Express is never put an American Express coupon code on your site, even if a merchant gives you permission. Big NO NO
