Your saved cards
Charge Cards differ to Credit Cards as they give you the financial flexibility of no pre-set spending limit1, and you should pay the balance in full at the end of each month.
It's rewarding to be an American Express Charge Card Member because you’ll be enrolled into Ascent Premium - our highest tier of Membership Rewards programs, where you earn rewards points for every dollar you spend2.
You can then use your points for rewards that really are unique2. Use the Platinum Card's Rewards Concierge4 to book you a table at a top restaurant so you can whet your appetite with a culinary experience created by a celebrity chef, or relax and take things easy at a luxury spa. You can also transfer your points3 to one of a number of airline or hotel partners, including Qantas Frequent Flyer, Velocity Frequent Flyer, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Hilton HHonors and Starwood Preferred Guest.
Our Platinum Charge Card offers a range of benefits. From concierge4 and travel services, and worldwide travel insurance5 when you pay for travel on your card, to access to airport VIP lounges.
The American Express Platinum Charge Card could offer you:
The range of protection and benefits varies between American Express Credit Cards and Charge Cards so compare them to see which suits you best.
Our Customer Care Professionals are available 24/7 via phone, email or mail and the first person to answer your call will help you with your enquiry through to resolution. Our Global Assist® team is on hand 24/7 to provide help and support in your own language when you travel outside Australia.
If things should go wrong, we'll soon put them right. All American Express Cards feature Chip and PIN technology and all transactions are processed through our own secure system to minimise the risk of fraud, whether you use your Card at home or abroad.
Wherever your travels take you, you can use your American Express Card. Our Cards are designed for international travel and offer a range of rewards including flights, hotel stays and travel insurance. Enjoy the highest level of protection for making payments overseas so you can relax and enjoy your travel.
Our early detection systems monitor potentially fraudulent activity. Our Online Fraud Protection Guarantee7 means that in the unlikely event you are a victim of card fraud, and you have taken reasonable care with your Card, you won't be held responsible for costs linked to the fraudulent activity.
For added protection, American Express Charge Cards also offer insurances on eligible items bought in Australia such as Purchase Protection5 and Refund Protection5 which means if a retailer refuses to give you your money back, we'll refund the purchase price on eligible items.
We put you firmly in control when it comes to managing your account. Register online and you can view and manage your account anytime of the day or night, virtually anywhere in the world - either online or on your mobile. View your current balance, have updates sent to your phone, pay your bills easily, and manage your rewards points.
