Why American Express?
Our goal is simple – to make life more enjoyable for our Cardmembers. Perhaps we can do that for you.
Patterns. How we help stop fraud in its tracks.
By watching patterns, we can spot the things that shouldn’t be there. Our intelligent security systems look out for anything unusual in your spending patterns to help stop fraud in its tracks. This way, you can get on with shopping for the things you love – with confidence.Explore our Cards
