Give the Gift of Energy This Holiday Season—And All Year Round!

You can help make someone's holiday a little brighter this year by purchasing an Ameren gift card.

With Ameren gift cards, you can give the gift of energy this holiday season—or at any time. This is also a great way to help your favorite charities offer help to people in need or cover their own energy bills during times when contributions may be down.

Gift cards are easy to purchase by visiting the Ameren website at Ameren.com. The cards can be purchased in amounts from $10 to $100 in whole dollar denominations over the Web through our vendor, US Payments. You can also purchase gift cards by phone to US Payments at 1-877-876-7076.

Anyone can purchase a gift card, but the recipient must be an Ameren Missouri or Ameren Illinois customer to redeem it. These gift cards can only be applied to energy charges. Customers can mail in the gift cards with their bill stubs to have the full value of the cards posted to their Ameren accounts. If the card is greater than the amount owed, the excess payment will be credited to the recipient’s next monthly bill. Customers can also go online and redeem a portion or the full amount of any gift card towards an Ameren account.
