American Express has provided their clients with a safe and secure platform from which they can activate any newly received cards and manage their credit cards in their entirety. By simply going to the American Express login page and logging in to their online accounts, cardholders have the ability to request additional cards, pay bills, review statement history and update personal information. With the help of our guide, available below, making changes to your account and activating your credit card online has never been any easier.
Go to the American Express homepage in order to login to your American Express online account. From the homepage you will see a window in the top left that is sticking out just below the American Express logo. This is the login tab that you will use to access your online account. Enter your User ID and password in the space provided and click the Log In button. If you have forgotten or misplaced your login information, click the Forgot User ID or Password? link and you will be taken to a retrieval page.
