Only card I am using right now.
Reviewer98 Cardholder

I've had this card for around 5 months now. It's very good for beginners. My sister with no credit history got approved for $2k. I was shocked when I got approved for $10k, I thought they made a mistake. My other cards have a $2k and $750 limit with interest, so I have stopped using those completely in favor of this one. I make payments on time and try to pay it off completely each month and my limit has just been upped to $15k. Love this card. I'll keep using it until the 0% interest deal wears off. I did not have any issues with the welcome bonus like some other reviewers did. I believe it goes towards your statement balance at the time.

Customer service was rude and wanted tax
BusinessOwner41 Cardholder

They want your federal tax returns. They did not require them before issuing the card and then after a month told me they needed them. I of course said no to that. Had I have known that they would have asked me for federal tax returns I would not have applied. Putting 4 years of federal tax returns out on the internet or even stored on their systems so they can be hacked later is just not a good idea. The value of the card is not worth the risk. No other card company has asked for my federal returns.  752 Fico score and don't need the hassle or risk. When I talked to them they said they had to have them or they might cancel me. I said to cancel my card I was not longer interested in it. Even though the card was paid in full they canceled the card and put it on my credit report that they had cancelled it when I had cancelled it.

Don't bother!
ChaCochran Cardholder

I had the card, paid on time, paid off complete balance and used it infrequently and paid in full to ensure I didn't increase my credit usage on my credit report. Due to the sale of my house and no longer holding a mortgage (we paid cash for our current home), my credit rating took a hit. Amex decided to cancel my account due to the decrease in my credit score (which is still not that bad by the way!), consequently causing an additional hit to my score for having an account closed! I even called them to express these concerns and show that ALL of my bills are paid on time and in good standing and that sometimes life changes affect us in an unexpected way, they did not care. I used to hold Amex in high regard, no more!

Good but had fraud issue
TS14TS1 Cardholder

Loved the priority delivery of new card. Easy to use app for verification. Alerts when my card is used. Easy to make payments. The bonus was applied to my account quickly. No issues with suppliers/companies not taking Amex  

i did receive email alert of fraud. Was easy to communicate that this charge was fraud. Then I receive 800 call for fraud. A second series of charges were attempting to hit. All online purchases. All fraud. Customer service was very nice to work with. Quick to capture the fraud charges, contact me and set up a new replacement card. 

i only have a few locations where I use all of my cards and this is the only one that has been jacked and used by someone else.

Great returns and great special benefits
lcisswyb Cardholder

On top of the cash back features, AMX runs regular monthly and annual additional benefits/promotions which extend to this card. This is a fantastic fast-recoup on benefits cards. It's going to have a lower credit cap than other cards, including the more traditional AMEX cards, but it's a great every day use card.

The card works well.
Spartian1 Cardholder

Don't get any american Express card, the company board members meet every month to decide if you as a person are still worthy to keep, the card. If you don't use it like they want you too the card balance is dropped. If your willing to put up with the crap from the company. Go for it or don't. I recommend getting another card.
