This card decreases in value every month until it disappears. My daughter wassaving her giftcards every year so she could buy a big gift. When she went to use her Amex Card it had zero balance. i called the compant and was told too bad. I think this company is stealing money from children. Never give a Amex zgift card it expires and the fees eat up the gift. Unbelievable and they have terrible customer service.
