Your saved cards
Charge Cards differ to Credit Cards as they give you the financial flexibility of no pre-set spending limit1, and allow you flexibility when spending. Using a Charge Card is a great way to manage your finances as the balance must be paid in full each month. Your purchases are approved based on a variety of factors, including your credit record, account history and personal resources.
It's also rewarding because the American Express Charge Card lets you maximize your rewards points earning potential. American Express Gold Rewards and Platinum Cardmembers also have the option of transferring points to one of several frequent guest programs such as Starwood Preferred Guest SM and Hilton HHonors® as well as frequent flyer or loyalty programs including Aeroplan®*,2 Delta SkyMiles®, and Avios®3. What's more, indulge a passion for shopping with gift cards from many premium retailers including Holt Renfrew, Banana Republic, Birks and Restoration Hardware.
When it comes to using your points, you will have access to a wide range of travel, dining, entertainment and retail rewards selected to suit even the most discerning taste.
