Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. Over the weekend, I reviewed my recent American Express credit card statements and spotted some major and minor changes to the terms. A few months ago, I wrote about other changes: AMEX Membership Rewards Changes: No Points for Cash Equivalents (Gift Cards) & Person-to-Person Payments (Venmo). Usually, whenever American Express makes a change to their program, it usually benefits American Express more than their cardholders.
In this month’s updates, there are some major and minor changes. I reviewed the changes to my American Express Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card and there are some changes that affect cash back credit cards. I also reviewed the changes to my American Express EveryDay Credit Card that earns Membership Rewards Points, and there are some changes there too. Lastly, some changes affect all types of credit cards. There is a lot to cover, so I will try to bold the most important stuff.
- American Express will look at your credit report and may use the info for marketing purposes, to evaluate your account, and more.
- American Express (and their affiliates and partners) may contact you at any phone number or email address to service your account or collect past due amounts.
- American Express will specify when and how frequent you can use the Plan It feature.
