Shoppers can stretch gift-giving budgets further this holiday season. In a nationwide promotion, American Express is offering shoppers a prepaid Gas Card worth $15 and up to 25% off Avis Rent A Car rentals when they purchase three American Express® Gift Cards of any value at participating retailers, shopping centers, AAA Clubs, banks and American Express Travel Services offices through December 31, 2008.

This holiday season when many shoppers are watching their gift-buying dollars closely, choosing to give American Express Gift Cards makes sense because recipients can use them as they wish: for a little luxury at a time when they really need to treat themselves, for a great deal on marked-down merchandise, or for necessities like groceries

The American Express Gift Card can be purchased in denominations ranging from $25 to $500, and is accepted at U.S. retailers, restaurants and merchants where American Express Cards are welcome.

"This holiday season when many shoppers are watching their gift-buying dollars closely, choosing to give American Express Gift Cards makes sense because recipients can use them as they wish: for a little luxury at a time when they really need to treat themselves, for a great deal on marked-down merchandise, or for necessities like groceries," said Stefan Happ, General Manager, American Express Gift Cards. "We're pleased to offer a gift to our customers, in the form of free gas and car rental discounts."

Shoppers can take advantage of this promotion by purchasing in person any three American Express Gift Cards at participating locations, completing a rebate form found in-store or online at americanexpress.com/gascard, and mailing it along with the original purchase receipt to the address on the rebate form. All forms must be received by January 22, 2009, with a limit of one Gas Card per household. A list of participating locations can be found at americanexpress.com/gascard

Upon receipt of the completed rebate form, a Gas Card worth $15 and an Avis promotion code will be mailed back within 60 days. The Gas Card can be redeemed for three months after the date of issue for purchases at U.S. gasoline retailers that accept American Express. The Gas Card must be presented to a cashier for processing and is not for use at the pump. Avis discounts vary by state for car rentals and rental fees must be charged in full to any American Express Card when using the promotional code.

In addition to the American Express Gift Card, American Express offers themed Gift Cards, including Gift Cards Especially(SM) for Kids, Teens, Birthdays, Dining, Movie Lovers, the Bride and Groom, and Thank You.
