I bought $100.00 AMEX GC for $90.00. My attempts to spend it have been declined at Office Max and a local grocery. I have verified it was properly activated by the store receipt and IVR (automated telephone call) .
What Can I get for my $100.00? Have you had problems using $100.00 AMEX GCs?
Check online. My guess is that the first one put a temporary hold on the card because the money wasn't loaded. Then the second one failed because $100 was no longer available If so, wait a few days for the hold to fall off

You tried to used the card before it was ready. 30-minute delay is normal for Amex.

Thank you 3c3. That was the correct final answer. Today, I went back to OM and successfully purchased a $100.00 MCGC without a fee with the AMEX $100.00 GC.
