What type of Card are you looking for?

Whether you want to collect loyalty Membership Rewards points, cashback, travel rewards or enjoy premium lifestyle experiences, here you could find a Card to suit your needs.
 

Finding a type of Card to suit your needs

American Express offers a range of UK Credit Cards and Charge Cards with different rewards and benefits tailored to your lifestyle and interests.

Charge Cards differ to Credit Cards as they give you the financial flexibility of no pre-set spending limit, and no interest charges since you must pay the balance in full at the end of each month.

Your spending limit however, depends on your Card usage, and is based on factors including your current spending patterns, payment history, credit record, and financial resources.

If a Credit Card is not what you are looking for, our Charge Cards maybe of interest to you.
