Why is American Express different

Answered By: Harold Lee Date: created: Oct 15 2020

While there are a few reasons for this, it’s mostly because American Express relies on fee income for more of its revenue than the others do. Instead of aiming to make the majority of its income from interest, Amex makes its money from swipe fees charged to merchants and annual fees charged to its customers.

Why do people use American Express

Answered By: Stanley Henderson Date: created: Feb 16 2022

Most people I know who have an American Express have a Visa or Master Card as a backup. The reason to use them is, if accepted, they frequently offer better rewards such as 2 to 3% on restaurants, supermarkets, and gas.
