Great Card, Decent Benefits

★★★★★
5 5 1
I really enjoy the Amex Credit card. There are some great benefits that come along with this card that make it much more desirable in comparison to some other cards I’ve used in the past. I enjoy the fact that the first year that the card holder has the Amex credit card there are no fees associated with it. You’re able to earn rewards for just using the card and of course if you have questions or need help, then you also have round the clock online chat support to help. The only downside I noticed when it comes to this card is the changes that occur after having it for a year. There is a pretty steep fee associated with this card if you make a late payment or for just being a card holder in general. There are a few different cards that Amex does offer and are a bit better than this one. If you’re okay with the fees and are sure to make a payment on time, then this could be the card for you. If you like Amex, but want something with better options then I highly suggest choosing either one of the other Amex cards that they have or just go with a different company in general. If you spend about a thousand dollars in the first few months of having this card they give you a pretty large sum of points, and offer single points on regular purchases with at least double points on flight purchases. That’s a pretty great rewards system if you ask me and easy to accumulate points to cash in for great rewards.

A card with nice rewards, especially the introductory bonus. 25,000 points! Wow! However, it could be a bit better afterwards regarding the point rewards system…I don’t complain though
