More likely, if you read the fine print on the gift card, you can't use them outside the U.S.

AMEX gift cards also, only in the U.S.

I don't see that anywhere in the Cardholder Agreement...can you show me please.
The Gift Card is a prepaid payment device that comes with a set dollar value printed on the front of the card. It is not a credit, charge or debit card. It can be used at retailers and other merchants located in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands that accept the American Express Card, including mail order, online and brick and mortar establishments ("Merchant"). The Gift Card cannot be used at cruise lines, for recurring billing purchases, or at casinos or ATMs. Usage restrictions apply for international airlines.

Thanks UncleB you wouldn't happen to know if MC allows Foreign Transactions? So for no Visa or Amex.
All the GCs I've come in conctact with have been for U.S. use only.
I have a MasterCard GC backed by U.S. Bank and the terms clearly state that it is only valid for domestic purchases: https://www.prepaidgiftbalance.com/documents/10270
I don't expect you'll find international-capable gift cards at your run-of-the-mill office supply and grocery stores (although I would love to find out I'm mistaken).
