For Second Year In a Row, American Express Offers a Gift Card Created Especially for Diwali
NEW YORK,  October 13, 2011 -- 

For the second year in a row, American Express is offering a Gift Card designed exclusively for the festive occasion of Diwali. The Diwali Gift Card from American Express can be used to substitute a cash gift, included with the traditional mithai box, or added as a special touch to any Diwali gift.

"We're pleased to again offer the Indian-American community a gifting solution for Diwali," said Simran Kalra, Vice President and General Manager, E-Commerce with American Express' Global Payment Options business. "With the American Express® Gift Card, recipients can be sure they are getting a Gift Card that's 100% gift, 0% fees."

Unlike some other gift cards, American Express Gift Cards have no fees after purchase -- no fees for activation, no fees for checking a balance, no fees for monthly servicing, no fees for Card replacement, and the funds on the Card do not expire. If lost or stolen, funds on the Gift Card can be replaced.

The Diwali Gift Card* from American Express is available in denominations of $25, $50, $100 and $200. Diwali Gift Cards are available online for a limited time. American Express is waiving the purchase price and offering free standard shipping when customers enter promo code 'DIWALI' through November 1. The American Express Gift Card is accepted at millions of locations in the United States where American Express® Cards are accepted. To purchase, visit
