Enhanced security

Chip & PIN technology gives you greater security as it uses a microchip to encrypt account information, making it difficult for unauthorized users to copy or access data. This can reduce fraud on lost, stolen, and counterfeit Cards. When you use a Chip Card, the transaction is validated when you enter a unique PIN that is provided only to you.

1. Account must be in good standing. Membership Rewards points will be earned by the Basic Cardmember on the amount of all purchases, less credits and adjustments. Funds advances, interest, balance transfers, Amex cheques, annual fees (if applicable), other fees, and charges for travellers cheques and foreign currencies are not purchases and do not qualify for Membership Rewards points. Earn 2 Membership Rewards points for every $1.00 in Eligible Purchases at your 5 places, which means consumer purchases at Canadian locations of 5 places you (as the Basic Cardmember) choose from a predefined list of American Express merchants, and 1 Membership Rewards point for every $1.00 in other qualified purchases at locations other than your 5 places. A minimum purchase of $0.50 is required to earn points. View the list of participating merchants at List is subject to change without notice. Merchants with multiple locations may submit transactions from different locations using different codes. This means that we may apply a different earn rate for purchases at different locations of a merchant and you will not earn extra points at your 5 places if the merchant code is not in a bonus category. Extra points will not be earned at your 5 places where the merchant processes transactions using an electronic wallet, that are not made directly from the provider of the good or service, e.g. through a third party, or by using a mobile device (e.g. smart phone) with an attached card reader. Selection of your 5 places can be made once per calendar year and applies to all Supplementary Cards on the account. Additional conditions and restrictions apply as set out in the Membership Rewards Program Terms and Conditions and the Membership Rewards Program section following the Cardmember Agreement provided in the welcome package.

These Alerts can help you manage your account by letting you know when your payment is due and when we receive your payments.

Account Alerts are available via email or text message and are a free service for American Express Cardmembers. You can select to have your Account Alerts sent straight to your mobile phone; however this service is only available with select cell phone providers.
