Ask any current American Express charge card holder and the will probably tell you that it’s the best charge card that they have every had, as long as it is accepted at all of their normal vendors. American Express is not the most widely accepted cards, and the main reason for this is because American Express charges a higher fee per transaction at merchants than other credit cards do. But as a cardholder you can reap the benefits from this extra money that American Express makes in the form of rewards and added features on your card. If you enjoy traveling or attending special events then take a look at the group of American Express charge cards and see what you have been missing.
