American Express Credit Cards

American Express was founded in Buffalo, New York in 1850 as a merger of two express mail companies, but from 1882 began to expand into the financial services area. Today, it is one of the world's leading credit card businesses, having introduced the concepts of gold and platinum card services as well as many other credit card innovations.

Known for being a premium credit card provider, American Express, or AMEX as it is often called, offers cards with many benefits. Often charging higher annual fees and interest rates than other credit institutions, in return you receive a status symbol with access to privileges and services unlike anything many other credit cards can provide.

The AMEX Platinum Credit Card is famous for being a sign of exceptional financial status, featuring some of the best premium services around. The annual fee of $395 is a meagre investment in extravagance, the AMEX Platinum Credit Card only available to customers of substantial means. American Express credit cards are synonymous with exclusivity.

Extensive reward programs give American Express credit cardholders unprecedented opportunities to maximise their credit card experience. Reward points can be spent on anything ranging from shopping purchases to airline flights, and can be earned from an even larger range of goods and services. With some premium AMEX credit cards offering as many as 1.5 reward points per dollar spent, American Express reward programs offer their benefits up front, not just in the future.
