Update: I just noticed that there is an another offer for existing cheque cardholders to get $500 in hotel savings if you buy $500 in travelers cheques.

Note: As AMEX is no longer issuing new Travelers Cheque Cards, this deal is only for existing cheque cardholders!

Long-time readers may recall a sweet deal that I posted way back in November 2005 for the American Express Travelers Cheque Card.

The offer was for free Delta Skymiles for purchasing the card.

The neat thing about the card was that you could fill it up with cash using any AMEX credit card.

The card had the following terms:

-Maximum card balance: $2,750

-Refill fee: $5

-Refill limit: Once every 14 days

-ATM withdrawal fee: $2.50 + the ATM’s fee.

-Maximum daily ATM withdrawal amount: $400

I did the deal for the free miles and then filed away the card away in the great black hole where I store all of my canceled cards.

Fast-forward 2 years: Today I got a letter from AMEX informing me that they were ending the program, and that I had until 09/30 to refill the card, and that on 10/31 they would refund any remaining funds on the card.

Sounds like 9/30 will be a good time to charge $2,750 to my Starwood AMEX and then wait for the refund check after 10/31!
