Holiday Giveaway: Enter to win $250 to shop from Serve by American Express

Happy Holidays! Enter our Giveaway to Get Festive

Back in September I shared with my readers how I was going to be evaluating the Serve card from American Express.  At that time, I shared how Serve had offered me $250.00 to do my holiday shopping.  Since then, I’ve used the Serve card just like I would use my American Express card to buy items at retail stores. I’ve even used it at airports to upgrade my boarding time (from Group 4 to Group 1) or buy dinner on board.   Serve is a prepaid digital and plastic debit car that also allows members to send and receive money quickly and make purchases online, offline and via mobile. Serve is accepted everywhere American Express is (in the United States), with 24/7 customer service and no fees.  With Serve, because it’s not a credit card, there are no finance fees.

Now, as I promised, I am going to share the holiday shopping joy with all of you.. plus wait for it…a  prize of a $250.00 American Express gift card. With an American Express Gift Card, you get the full amount on the card, there are no fees or service charges, so all $250.00 will really be at the winner’s disposal.  This is a super prize for one lucky reader!  Serve by American Express is accepted at millions of shops and restaurants around the world, so the options for spending & fabulous finds are almost infinite.  The winner will be able to use their Serve card loaded with $250.00 to shop all the great New Year’s sales.
