Fashion Hippo partnered with American Express to offer one of our lucky reader a holiday worthy price of pre-paid $500 American Express Gift Card, to spend on anything your heart desires.
The winner will also receive 1 Year of American Express Premium Return Protection that will ensure you no longer have a “Purchase Regret” (see below what the Return Protection is all about). During this giveaway we’d love to learn fascinating stories about your purchase regrets.
We’ve all made a purchase (or more) that we ultimately regret – impulse buys that we really don’t need, an online purchase that looked better on-screen than in-person, or a sale item that’s no longer in style – the problem is, if we wait too long, we find ourselves in a situation where these sorts of purchases can’t be returned. That is “Purchase Regret”.

Now a few words about Premium Return Protection…
What is Premium Return Protection and how does it work?
Premium Return Protection is a new protection service from American Express that gives shoppers up to 180 days to return popular items that retailers will no longer accept. This means that American Express will refund the purchase price of the item including tax (up to $600) and return shipping up to $20 per item.
Another advantage of the service is that it can be used to cover restocking fees, which can be as much as 25 percent of the cost of an item. The new service is available to all consumers for an annual price of $49.99 and will cover purchases made with any credit, debit or charge card from any financial services company as well as American Express prepaid cards.
That means if you paid for an item with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover card – any credit, debit or charge card from someone other than American Express – you can enjoy the benefits of American Express with Premium Return Protection.
Up to what dollar amount is covered for returns? How long do consumers have to make a return?
Shoppers are covered for purchases made on any card up to $600 per item (up to $2,500 per year). Shoppers have up to 180 days from the date of purchase to return an item to American Express. This is six times as long as an average retailers return policy. Items must be in “like new” condition and in working order to receive coverage. Items must be purchased in the United States from a retailer in the United States to be eligible on a credit, debit, charge or American Express Pre–paid card in the enrollee’s name.
Isn’t this a wonderful service?
