American Express, also known as ‘Amex’ is a credit card used by customers across the world including America, Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, and Australia. American Express works in all continents except Antarctica.
American Express as a country started 160 years when four companies ventured together in New York in the year 1850. The company was originally founded to provide cargo shipments for shipping valuables, security goods, and currency. It then expanded into financial services but incepting the money order business. This business was started to compete with the United States Post Office money orders. The international traveler’s cheque was launched by American Express in the year 1891.
The introduction of the Amex credit card was a huge matter of discussion all across the company headquarters. In 1958, the company launched its first Amex card and then later came up with a plastic card followed by a gold card and a platinum card. The company started targeting all the segments of the market including the average customers to gigantic companies. There are no more than the local fees attached to the use of an American Express card and therefore, it is a preferred choice for making deposits on the poker rooms. It offers an online interface where the customers can log on and check the credit on the card and pay Amex bills online.
It has been a good choice for all the customers to use it instead of cash. The card is pretty simple to use and is more useful than cash, especially while making deposits on casinos, poker rooms, or purchasing goods online. American Express offers extra value to all users by utilizing a bonus point rewards program. These points could be used to collect rewards such as travel or cash-backs. There is an Amex online shop that offers a selection of goods for the users.
As far as security is concerned, American Express sets a higher standard for the other credit card companies. If the players lose a card, they can get a new card from Amex in less than 24 hours. The players can expect new cards, even when they are in a foreign country. American Express has local embassies in almost all the major cities of the world and can help the players while they use the card in the poker rooms. The American Express web interface could be translated into 85 languages and hence customers from more than 130 countries can view the credit card statement and bonus point breakdown in their language.
