American Express Charge Cards


Looking for great rewards and financial flexibility? An American Express® Charge Card could be the solution.

What is a Charge Card?


For the financially savvy consumer, a charge card makes good sense – it has no pre-set spending limit on purchases1 and because your balance must be paid in full each month, many people find that a charge card helps them control spending. Your purchases are approved based on a variety of factors, including your credit record, account history and personal resources.
