If you have a dispute OR fraud ... go with AMEX! They are a company that truly takes care of you alway. Have trustwd them for years. Love my AMEX!
Good and fair company. Business oriented definitely. Professional, people we talk with
Good product, but I wouldn't pay to have one of the higher end cards.
I've been very happy with my Delta Gold and Starwood Preferred American Express cards. The rewards are good and the customer service is always superb.
I use my American Express credit card because I like the flexibility of how I can use the points. I can use points for flights, hotels and even charity. American Express is not accepted everywhere but I find I can use the card at most places. They have also been great to follow up on questionable charges which gives me peace of mind.
I’ve been a customer for years. We love the rewards program. It’s so easy and hassle free.
American Express is the odd-man out. Other cards are accepted in more places. Visa seems to be much more universal.
It was easy to get an American Express credit card and they are always helpful when we call with problems. The flight rewards we get are great also!
I used their Credit card through Costco when they were partner with them... Easy app to use. Great reward program.
I love American Express. They took good care of you. Great customer service
Points are always a great bonus when spending money.
I’m all about the benefits! I have multiple cards and love them all! I love the delta miles and the flexibility of membership rewards points that I use for travel as well or for gift cards etc!
very good, told me my options and let me to know I could change later if I wanted to.
Most of the time, I'm pretty happy with the service, but there are times your loyalty doesn't pay
AMEX has always worked well to solve problems. Also there haven't been many of those either.
Always a good experience Have had them and they are the best
When it is needed to call the AMEX people you are treated nicely and when they answer the phone you do not have to repeat your card number as they have a system that identifies you as a legit caller and the people you talk too are reasonable . There was a time when AAA double charged me for a battery replacement and they saw it immediately and reversed the charge. Sadly AAA dropped AMEX soon after that.
It forces me to buy only what I can pay for.
Reliable, slower payoff! Great auto program!
website is easy to use, good for frequent flyer miles, keep my rate percentage down.
the amount of credit is helping in times of need.
The best card there is.....fraud protection is the best
Ease of use, protection from theft, rewards
Never had a single problem. Has always s performed well for me
The skymiles and many places accept the card.
I have the AMEX platinum card which is great for business and personal travel. While pricey, I always feel that I come out ahead. They reimburse travel expenses related to baggage, Uber, global entry, and others. In addition, I automatically get status at hotels, car rentals, etc. While I earn status on many of these already, some of them I only use on as needed basis. Their concierge service is wonderful. I have used them to obtain tickets and restaurant reservations in various cities and well as provide recommendations.
Secure. Have stopped fraudulent activity numerous times.
Never ever a hassle if something is disputed
Have dealt with them for years. Plan all our travel with them also.
customer service. They were willimg to go to battle when you had a problem.
It is perfect in all areas except acceptance, so I have to carry another card
Good card. I really enjoy getting to use it on vacation and when I order online
Been very good to me they explains things so people can understand it there fees are low
This is a great company. They offered an American Express card as soon as I had my first job. I've been with them ever since. I did switch to a Delta American Express card. I like the mileage rewards. I also get a free companion ticket voucher every year. They are very responsive when you call. I appreciate the ability to categorize and evaluate your expenditures by purchase area. Their service professionals are always very friendly and helpful.
NO LIMIT. YOU NEVER HAVE TO WORRY. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS GREAT.
They lower your redemption value for reward points based on what purchases you want to credit, so you always get less than 100% value of your points balance.
i was not please when i tried to pay a bill and the company that i was paying said they did not honor american express cards, so i had to go and purchase a money order to pay my bill
Perceivef Prestige, wide use both physically and online, competitive interest rate, good points for loyalty programs
Easy to use - get rewards - pay it off each month
They have always been easy to work with and provide insurance on my travels.
