What is the Difference Between Visa Card and Amex Gift Cards

Some Visa Cards (such as Netspend visa cards) are reloadable. This means the Visa Card could be loaded with money countlessly. Meanwhile, Amex gift cards cannot be reloadable. Once the value placed on the gift card is exhausted, it can not be loaded with money again.

There are other American Express prepaid cards that are reloadable. Examples are BlueBird and American Express Serve.
