What are Push Notifications?

Push Notifications allow you to receive important account updates via push notifications and events on your timeline.

Where will my Push Notifications appear on my device?

By enrolling in Push Notifications, your financial information may be displayed on your mobile device’s Lock Screen and Notification Centre. The information that may be presented within these locations includes Payment Amount, Balance Amount, Due Date, Payment Date, Statement Date and Last 5 Digits of your Card. If you do not wish to receive Push Notifications in these locations, you can manage your Notifications in your mobile device Notification settings at any time. You can individually manage your Amex Push Notifications you want to receive within the Amex App at any time.

What if I already receive American Express Account Alerts?

Enrollment for the Amex App Push Notifications and American Express Account Alerts are separate. If you are enrolled for both Amex Push Notifications and Account Alerts by email or SMS, changes made to the settings on one service may impact the settings of the other.

What happens to my Push Notifications if I change or lose my device?

If you change or lose your mobile device, that device may continue to receive Push Notifications until a new device is set up for Push Notifications. Thus when you change devices please ensure to set up Push Notifications on your new device.

Will others see my Push Notifications?

If another user is on your device and logged into the Amex App with their American Express account, your Push Notifications will not be sent during this time. If the other user changes their Push Notifications preferences while using your device they may overwrite your existing Push Notification preferences. Therefore you should review who has access to your device.

What if I do not receive my Push Notifications?
