American Express Credit Cards

Credit cards from American Express (a CardHub advertiser) account for approximately 24% of the total dollar volume of credit card transactions in the U.S. – the highest of any issuer. American Express has built this lead thanks to a reputation for strong customer service as well as attractive rewards credit cards and charge cards targeted to people and businesses with excellent credit. The one downside to using an American Express credit card is that Amex is not nearly as widely accepted as Visa or MasterCard – particularly outside of the United States. As always, we at CardHub recommend not…show more

    Be sure to check if American Express has charged you for a late fee and interest on your credit card that you paid on time. I have had seven such charges in the last two years amounting to $171.43

    I've been an AmEx cardholder since 1980 and a Platinum card holder for almost 20 years. I used to swear by the card and told people that, especially if they were going abroad, the AmEx card was essential. Over the past decade or so, I've noticed a number of troubling issues. Here are just a few of the most egregious problems I've encountered:
    --Their travel service has become a joke. Among countless failings, try asking the person who books your flight for good hotel recommendations in the old city in Barcelona and you'll get Relais & Chateau--they're reading from a book--regardless of the fact that you've asked for a quaint, small old hotel. Nor will they seek someone with experience in Barcelona. (This goes for any city.) They do have country specialists, but they charge for them. After paying $450/year for a card, it's a little insulting to be charged for a service I can get from the Internet or a travel agent.
    --Twice in the past two years, my wife needed medical attention in France from a doctor who spoke English as I speak good tourist French but that's it. I called AmEx and got completely wrong information. At one point, I drove to the address they gave me which was a nursing home. When I called to tell them the address was wrong, another moron insisted they'd given me the right address. Passing strangers gave us the address of a hospital--where no one spoke English. The second more

    I have had an American Express card for a while now, and although it is not that great when you have a problem when you want to transfer money, it is actually a pretty decent card. It takes a while to transfer money, but when it does go through, there are never any more problems. It's a pretty good card, and you get benefits if you have good credit.

    I have been using my AMERICAN EXPRESS Serve card for the last year. No annual fees and ATM money withdraw free at select banks. I love it, the online site helps you classify purchases and manage sub accounts very easily. There are two day earlier Direct deposit of your Paycheck. Customer service is very good. I had the bad experience of getting a charge I didn't authorize and they readily sent me a replacement card and blocked the charge. The only thing I don't like is that Amex is not taken by several stores and services, so paying online has to be done with a different card.

    I have both an American Express Green and American Express Blue credit cards. I pay an annual fee for both of these cards, however, the rewards, travel benefits, fraud protection and purchase protection, more than make up for the cost of the annual fees. I use the American Express Blue credit card for personal travel and use the Green American Express for business travel. On a personal trip to Cancun, our flight from Chicago to our final destination was canceled due to snow and ice. The flight from Cancun to Chicago did not get canceled, just delayed. I called American Express Travel for assistance, they were able to get us into the last room at the Hilton O'Hare and made sure we had dinner delivered within 15 minutes after check in. They turned a really bad situation into a less stressful and restful night. I appreciate the extra mile they went on our behalf. I did write a letter of praise to the company regarding the excellent customer service we had received.

    I have been using my American Express card for about a year now. I do have an annual fee but it is offset by all of the rewards that I earn. The rewards are the best I've earned with any card and there are a lot of options to select when redeeming my rewards.

    I have the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express. I selected that one as I often fly Delta from the Midwest to California and vice versa. The free bag checking for 3 of us pays for the annual fee, and the miles soon add up. The priority boarding is handy for getting the carry on stashed before the luggage bins fill up. I only use it when I fly Delta, but it works great as a secondary card.

    I have two different American Express cards and I like both of them. Neither have an annual fee, which makes my rewards much more attractive. My favorite reward is getting the cash back. The only downside is that they are not taken everywhere.

    I have the Macy’s American Express card. I got a credit card offer in the mail and I decided to give it a go since I did not have an American Express card at the time. So far I think it’s just an okay card. Macy’s doesn’t have a really good rewards program. The rewards are just mostly to get discounts at the store and nothing else really.

    I have been using the American Express Small Business Open card for years. I think this is a wonderful deal if you qualify for one. The Small Business card offers a generous rebate in many categories: 3% for gas, 5% for cell phone service, 5% for office products, 1% on everything else, also they have some nice rebates for airline travel with certain carriers (often as high as 20% rebates!) Also rebates of up to 20% for Dell computer purchases. I love this card and use it all the time.

    The TrueEarnings Card from Costco and American Express has saved me and my family an indescribable amount of time and money. We shop at Costco all the time and are constantly buying stuff for our 2 kids. The rewards for this card are better than any card I have had in the past.

    I have the same card and the rewards are good. I wonder if Amex and Costco will eventually iron out a deal and keep the marriage intact. I am looking at other reward cards in case they don't or use my other visa reward cards
