    Here are the links, followed by the catch:


    1. Travel Alarm Clock with Calendar: http://travel.americanexpress.com/travel/personal/resources/needs/insurance/flight/gift.asp

    2. Weekender Bag: http://travel.americanexpress.com/travel/personal/resources/needs/insurance/baggage/gift.asp

    3. Travel Bag: http://travel.americanexpress.com/travel/personal/resources/needs/insurance/travel_medical/bag.asp


    Where is the catch:

    You have to enroll in Amex travel programs: Automatic Flight Insurance, Premium Baggage Protection and Travel Medical Protection, respectively.

    Now the first 2 don't require any enrollment- or annual fees. There are only per-trip fees, charged if and when you use your Amex card to book a flight. Of course, you could cancel at any time and still keep the gifts.

    The third involves an annual fee. If you cancel within 30 days you keep the gift and still get a full refund.

    Disclaimer: Read all the fine print. Enroll at your own risk. Ok that should keep my *** covered :)
