Editors Review

One more blue card from American Express. If you got lost, please read our review.

Pros

  • no annual fee
  • 1-2x points per dollar
  • classic revolving credit card, not a charge card

Cons

  • not a great rewards rate
  • 2.7% foreign transaction fee

Verdict

Not the greatest card from AmEx. There is a better choice of either Blue Cash or AmEx EveryDay cards with no annual fee and up to 3% rewards or cashback rate.

The good about this card is that it is a common credit card with revolving credit - you can carry a balance, unlike famous AmEx charge cards.
