The Amex Mobile app makes it easy to track recent charges and payments with a timeline of your activity. Primary Card Members can also filter to see charges and subtotals for each additional Card on their account.
Find savings at places you shop, dine, travel, and more, and add offers to your Card in just a few taps. Explore offers on a map so you don't miss out on any nearby savings.
Turn on purchase alerts and we’ll notify you when your Card is charged, whether it’s a spur-of-the-moment purchase or those easy-to-forget monthly subscriptions. We’ll even alert you if we detect any suspicious activity on your account, so you can verify charges and get back to using your Card.
Get quick access to billing statements and make a payment virtually anywhere, anytime - even on the day your bill is due (up to 8PM MST).
Easily use Membership Rewards® points for eligible charges. From a cup of coffee to a new pair of jeans, the choice is yours. It’s just one of the many ways you can use points. Visit membershiprewards.com for information on available rewards choices.

How do push notifications work for the Amex Mobile app?
Push notifications provide you with relevant and useful information about your Card Account and activity when you need it. For example, you might receive a push notification when there is a potentially fraudulent charge on your Card or, if you turn on purchase alerts on your phone, when a charge is made on your Card.
If you want to receive push notifications, make sure to allow them in your phone settings. You can also choose which notifications you would like to receive at any time by following these steps:
1. Log in to Amex Mobile app
2. Tap on the Card in the top left corner on your iPhone or on the three dots in the top right corner of your Android phone
3. Tap on “Settings” Tap on “Push Notifications"
4. Slide the toggles “On” or “Off” to adjust preferences
Please note if you have more than one Card, some push preferences must be adjusted at the Card level. You can only receive push notifications for a Card or an American Express online account on one device.
Are fraud alerts in the Amex Mobile app different from fraud alerts I receive via email and/or SMS?
By enabling push notifications in the Amex Mobile app, we will instantly notify you when suspicious charges are detected. Unlike with the emails or SMS alerts you may otherwise receive, if you made the charge, you will be able to verify the charge right in the app without having to call us or visit our website. Also, if you suspect the charge is fraudulent, you can call our Account Protection Services with just one tap. You can adjust your SMS and email account alerts by logging in to americanexpress.com.
How do purchase alerts work?
By turning on purchase alerts, you will receive a push notification when there is purchase activity on your Card. Purchase activity includes purchases made with your plastic Card or a mobile wallet, as well as pre-authorizations made on your Card by merchants like gas stations and hotels, which are temporary and subject to change.
Note that if you turn on purchase alerts and are enrolled in Card Not Present alerts via SMS or email, you will receive both a purchase alert from the Amex Mobile app and an SMS or email alert. You can adjust your SMS and email account alerts by logging in to americanexpress.com.
I already receive purchase notifications from a mobile wallet app and/or American Express Pass – will I get more than one notification if I enroll in purchase alerts in the Amex Mobile app?
If you turn on purchase alerts in the Amex Mobile app and have notifications for one or more of your Cards enabled in Apple Pay on your iPhone, you will not receive purchase alerts for this Card(s) from the Amex Mobile app. Notifications from our iPhone app have the title "Amex."
If you turn on purchase alerts in the Amex Mobile app and have notifications for one or more of your Cards enabled with a mobile wallet on your Android phone, you will not receive purchase alerts for this Card(s) from the Amex Mobile app. Notifications from our Android app have the Amex logo, and no other logos.
If you have an active American Express Pass and turn on purchase alerts in the Amex Mobile app, you may receive duplicate push notifications for purchases you make. You can turn off your Pass notifications by adjusting your “Automatic Updates” settings on the back of your American Express Pass at any time.
What is Amex Offers?
Amex Offers Card Members more ways to save every day. Simply select the offers you want to add to your Card, then use your Card to pay and see the savings add up as statement credits on your account.
By using Amex Offers in the Amex Mobile app, you will be able to locate nearby offers on a map. For iPhone users, you can also receive alerts when an offer you have enrolled in is expiring or nearby.
Learn more about Amex Offers by visiting this page.
