Quick and Easy Ways to Manage Your Account

Check Your Latest Account Status

Online Services enables you to check your recently billed and unbilled charges online. You can also view and download your Card Statements from the previous 12 months.

Online Statement Service (Paperless)

If you are an individually billed Card Member, please sign up for our Online Statement Service (Paperless)*, which allows you to check your monthly Card Statements online. When you register for Paperless, you will receive an email notification once your statement is ready for viewing, instead of receiving the statement by post.

*If your company has selected 'Paper Statements', it will not be possible for individual Card Members to select 'Paperless'.

Manage Your Membership Rewards

If you are enrolled in the Membership Rewards program, you can check your Membership Rewards status and redeem points online.*

Managing Your Card

Period of Validity and Renewal

The American Express® Corporate Card validity dates are embossed on the front of the Card. Your Card is valid from the first day of the first month through to the last day of the expiry month. You will automatically receive a renewal Card before the expiry date of your current Card. Please sign your Card as soon as you receive it.

*We recommend using the same signature as the one you used on your Card application.
*Cards without a signature cannot be accepted by merchants.
*Please be advised that we may ask about the need for your renewal Card if your Card has not been used for a certain period.

Payment Method

The payment should be made via direct debit from the bank account designated by your Authorizing Officer, or bank transfer. Please contact your company’s Authorizing Officer for details of your payment method. Your monthly cut off date is shown in the table below. You can confirm the date in your Card carrier (the piece of paper that the Card is attached to) or on your monthly Card Statement.

Please note that in the event of a payment not being processed by the payment due date, a delinquency fee may be charged.

Statement cut off and payment due dates

No Pre-Set Spending Limit

At American Express, the spending limit for each Card Member is set in accordance with the individual's spending and payment pattern. If you plan to make an unusually large purchase in Japan, or when travelling overseas, we recommend that you contact us in advance for pre-authorization.

Card Replacement

Please request a Card replacement immediately if your Card is lost or stolen to avoid any potential fraudulent usage of your Card, or if your Card has been damaged. We will issue a replacement Card free of charge usually within 7 to 10 days after your request.

Please note that your Card number will be changed upon Card replacement. If you have registered your Card for any recurring payments, please inform the service providers of the updated Card information. For more details, please contact the service providers.
You can continue using your ETC card, regardless of Card replacement. If you wish to replace your ETC card, please call our Membership Services Center.

※For Corporate Purchasing Solution users who have not been issued a physical Card, please have the registered Authorizing Officer or Contact Person contact our Corporate Services Center.

Preventing Unauthorized Usage

Service establishments are required to contact American Express when the amount charged on a Card exceeds a certain amount set depending on the type of service establishment. In such cases you may be asked to verify your identity in order to protect your Card from fraudulent activity such as unauthorized usage if your Card is lost or stolen.

Unfamiliar Purchase on Statement

Please be sure to save your receipts to cross-check purchases with your monthly statement. If there is an incorrect or unfamiliar purchase on your statement, please contact the Membership Services Center. American Express will temporarily cancel the item in question and launch an investigation into the matter, together with the merchant from where it was purchased.

Prior to contacting us, we recommend that you check directly with the merchant in question regarding the purchase.
