What is the American Express Auto Purchasing Program?
Does Amex offer identity theft protection?
No purchases were made and no victim lost any money. An American Express spokesman said the company’s systems were not hacked, contrary to a previous headline on this website.
American Express is not accepted everywhere because American Express charges merchants higher fees than Visa, Mastercard. This makes retailers like Costco, independently owned boutiques, and many family stores shy away from accepting your American Express card.
Probably because Amex isn’t as popular in the UK, therefore it isn’t widely accepted. Most travellers aren’t “dismayed” because they have done their research before they travel. The card is simply not beneficial to the retailer. There is, thus, very little incentive for retailers to accept Amex.
Can you buy a car with Amex points?
The Amex Auto Purchasing Program is an online portal powered by TrueCar where you can find TrueCar certified dealerships that allow you to purchase vehicles with American Express cards (at least partially) and get special discounts and other perks with your purchase.
