Benefits of Participation:
If you have a My Card Account (“MYCA Account”)
and an online account for ordering Gift Cards (“Gift Card Account”) on the American
Express website, you may enroll in the American Express Premium Shipping Plan. The
Plan entitles you to free Rush shipping for all eligible orders within a twelve
(12) month period from the date you signed up for the Plan. There is no minimum
dollar purchase requirement for receiving free Rush shipping for a particular
order. However, after signing up for Shipping Plan, you shall be charged the annual
membership fee of $99.00 US Dollars which shall be billed to your credit or charge
card at the same time we process a gift card order for you. “Rush shipping”
usually means that the order is expected to arrive the next business day after it
is shipped. However, delivery also depends in part on third party shipping constraints
and policies, inventory availability, order deadlines, and in some cases, on the
shipping address. Please note that all orders, including customized product orders,
require a processing period before the order is shipped which is separate from the
shipping timeframe. Processing time varies by product as indicated on the order
processing screen on the website. Membership in the Plan is non-transferable. Also,
a member under age 21 may use the TRS Web site only with involvement of a parent
or guardian. If you are ordering on behalf of a business or corporate entity, please
note the Purchaser Agreement as well as these Terms apply.
The Plan is available only for certain products
as expressly indicated on the American Express website. The Plan must be used by
you to ship American Express products to addresses within the continental United
States, Alaska, P.O. boxes, APO/FPO (and U.S. territories, possessions and protectorates).
Please note that due to legislative restrictions, please note that American Express
does not ship gift card products to Hawaii and Vermont.
No international deliveries will qualify for shipment through the Plan.
Plan members are not permitted to purchase for the purpose of resale. In addition,
if you are ordering on behalf of a business, you agree not use the Plan to ship
products directly to your customers or potential customers at multiple addresses.
You must have an active Americanexpress.com MYCA Account
and Gift Card Account to sign up for and use the American Express Premium Shipping
Plan. Only purchases made through your MYCA Account and Gift Card Account may qualify
for American Express Premium Shipping Plan. We reserve the right to accept or refuse
to enroll you in the Plan, in our discretion. We shall notify you if we refuse to
enroll you in the Plan. You may not transfer or assign your membership in this Service,
or its respective benefits, except as otherwise allowed by us. Some special product,
order, handling fees and/or taxes may still apply to eligible purchases and if applicable,
will be disclosed at the time of your order. If only some items in your order are
eligible for the Service, you will pay applicable charges for the ineligible items.
Changing or combining orders, or changing your shipping address, or preferences
might affect eligibility or use of the Plan and/or its benefits. Please note:
• Our carriers usually do not pick-up or deliver packages on weekends or holidays
(though American Express Premium Shipping Plan members may be eligible for special
shipping options on qualifying purchases or deliveries, in our discretion);
• We do not guarantee delivery of products within the estimated transit time or
by the estimated delivery date.
• This Service is not available for members who purchase products for the purpose
of resale or use this Service to ship products to their customers or potential customers.
• Because a signature is required for receipt of Premium Shipping (Rush) orders,
shipments to P.O. Box addresses will be sent via USPS (Standard shipping method) and will arrive within the number of days indicated on your order.
All sales are final. Refunds or cancellation of Gift Cards is subject to the terms
and conditions in the Cardholder Agreement.
Fees and Renewal:
There is an annual membership fee of ninety-nine

for payment at any time. The Plan membership fee is non-refundable, except as outlined
