Say 'welcome' to higher spending customers. 



Accepting American Express means so much more than just accepting a Card.

Customers who spend more could be filing through your door, and there’s thousands of them.

American Express Card Members in New Zealand actually report spending more than those who carry other Credit Cards1. As an example: they report spending on average 40% more than non-Card Members on restaurant purchases2.

Why do they spend more? Well, every dollar spent on their American Express® Card could earn points3, which they can turn into rewards, such as flights4 or a new smartphone5, and they're always looking for businesses who can help them earn more points to get these rewards sooner.
