American Express Charge Card gives you the privilege to enhance your gamut of experiences when it comes to living your life. A charge card is like a credit card that has no pre-set limit. A ‘no pre-set’ credit limit would mean that the bank doesn’t impose a fixed maximum amount you can spend. Instead American Express will evaluate your financial stability periodically, in order to determine your limit for that period. Unlike a credit card, a charge card requires you to pay the due amount in full at the end of every Billing Cycle. For e.g., if you spend INR 50,000 on your purchases using AMEX Charge Card, you will need to pay the entire INR 50,000 billed to you in that Billing Month. In case of a partial or no payment, a late payment fee will be applied to your account.
