Can I use an AmEx Gift Card for an American Express Presale at Specifically, this event? I don't have a regular AmEx credit card.

When I've bought tickets that were held for AmEx customers, I've had to enter in a piece of information beyond just the typical card info. So, no, I don't think it works for gift card holders.

No, presales are for cardmembers only.

(It's not a particularly exclusive club; I bet if you applied for and qualified for an Amex, they would be happy to overnight it to you.)

I found the same thing halogen did, but FWIW this super random comment from some message board from March of last year (biggest grain of salt ever) says it worked for at least one presale.

Inigo2 - yes, I saw a couple comments to that effect too, which is why I haven't written off the idea altogether.

Ok, here's the official, noncommital response from Ticketmaster: "Thank you for contacting us. You may be able to use your American Express gift card. Unfortunately since the presale has not started yet for this event, we cannot see what is required for it. Sometimes it may require an actual credit card to be used, since it may ask for the Customer Service number on the back or the actual credit card number. We would suggest checking on the day that the presale begins, which is Wednesday May 30, 2012, to see what is accepted or required. You will be able to see this on the event page where you buy the tickets."
