American Express, Uber Launch Mobile Loyalty Program

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express has announced a new partnership with Uber - saying it is "a first-of-its-kind technology integration into the Uber iOS app that allows U.S. Card Members enrolled in the Membership Rewards program to choose to earn 2x points or use points for Uber rides." Amex says this is the first time that consumers can use loyalty reward points seamlessly in-app and in real time for on-demand transportation in this way.

Our Membership Rewards program is known for delivering world-class value and we're focused on bringing it to life in innovative, relevant ways for our Card Members," said Leslie Berland, senior vice president, Digital Partnerships and Development at American Express.

"Through this new, slick and powerful integration with Uber, one of the most forward-looking, mobile-based services in the industry, we are leveraging our unique technology to add a real-time benefit where we know our Card Members want it."

Once a Card Member with an eligible Card on file with Uber downloads the latest version of the Uber iOS app, they will see a prompt to enroll their Card in the program - in just one tap. Once enrolled, eligible Card Members have a new in-app option to toggle between "Earn 2x Points" or "Use Points" for Uber rides. Card Members who choose to "Earn 2x Points" or "Use Points" will receive an on-screen ride summary and email receipt from Uber showing that 2x Membership Rewards points were earned or that points were redeemed.

American Express Expands OptBlue Merchant Acquirer Program

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express has announced the expansion of OptBlue, its new merchant acquiring program that extends U.S. small merchant acceptance coverage for its cards.

Amex reports there are now 10 participating acquirers in OptBlue, five of which are among the top 10 in the United States. New to the program are: First Data, EVO, Merchant e-Solutions and First American Payments Systems. The program was announced at American Express’ Financial Community meeting earlier this year with Vantiv, Global Payments, Heartland Payment Systems, Worldpay, Transfirst and JetPay as the first participants. Participating acquirers will provide a full one-stop servicing solution for American Express Card® acceptance to eligible U.S. small merchants.

OptBlue is part of American Express’ ongoing commitment to enhance the U.S. small merchant experience and is an evolution of our acquiring business,” said Ed Jay, Executive Vice President, Merchant Services - Americas, American Express.

“The program will help deliver a smart and easy solution for U.S. small merchants to enjoy the benefits of American Express Card acceptance while making it convenient for consumers to Shop Small® year round.”

With OptBlue, participating acquirers can offer U.S. small merchants the benefit of a single statement, one settlement process, and one contact for all the major card brands. Acquirers determine merchant pricing in addition to providing payment processing and servicing. OptBlue will help expand American Express’ U.S. small merchant coverage, providing consumers more payment options at local businesses. American Express continues to receive the same transactional information it does today, allowing OptBlue merchants to benefit from the valuable tools, services and marketing that the Company delivers to small merchants. OptBlue is limited to eligible U.S. small merchants that have a projected American Express charge volume of less than $1 million per year.

American Express Expands Serve Distribution to Walmart

American Express announced that American Express Serve, its full service reloadable prepaid account, will be available for purchase at 4,100 Walmart stores nationwide. The Walmart stores will also become a part of Serve’s free cash reloading network - extending the network across 19,500 U.S. Walmart, CVS/pharmacy®, and participating 7-ELEVEN® locations.

By offering American Express Serve alongside Bluebird at Walmart, we’re expanding our portfolio of products to meet the needs of more Walmart shoppers,” said Dan Schulman, group president, Enterprise Growth at American Express.

“Bluebird is a great option for the “unhappily banked” who are looking for a true alternative to the fees and hidden charges often associated with debit and checking. With Serve, our full service reloadable prepaid account, we can now provide the nearly 70 million Americans who are unbanked or underbanked1 a simple and affordable way to move and manage their money.”

According to Aite Group, the addition of 4,100 Walmart stores across the U.S. to the American Express Serve and InComm free cash reload network makes it the largest network in the U.S.

American Express Introduces the Amex EveryDay℠ Credit Card - No Annual Fee, EMV

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express has introduced the Amex EveryDay Credit Card, calling it "a new no annual fee credit card that puts a twist on the traditional rewards program." The EveryDay Card will be available by April 2, 2014. The card has no annual fee, includes EMV smart chip technology and a rewards program incentive for both encouraging more frequent use of the card (20% kicker to rewards when used 20 times or more per month as well as double rewards when used for purchases at supermarkets.

Our goal is to be a more inclusive and welcoming brand by building new products for different lifestyles and spending needs, backed by the service and quality that has made American Express so successful,” said Josh Silverman, president, Consumer Products & Services, American Express.

“The average American uses their credit or debit card twice a day, and shops most within 20 minutes of their home,” added Silverman. “So we designed a card that doesn’t require you to change your daily ritual – but rewards you for where you already shop.”

American Express says that the new Amex EveryDay Credit Card was "designed with the multi-tasker in mind, like busy moms juggling family, work and their personal lives. The Card rewards Card Members at the places they already shop, and includes access to the retail protection, security and service expected from American Express."

Amex is using Tina Fey in its TV and print advertising along with photographs shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

American Express Agrees to Settle US Merchant Class Action Litigations

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express has announced that it has agreed to settle two antitrust class action lawsuits filed by U.S. merchants that challenged the company’s card acceptance agreements. The company says that "the settlement agreement will address certain merchant concerns, while helping to ensure that American Express Card Members are treated fairly at the point of sale. It will also limit the Company’s exposure to future legal claims."

Tim Heine, Managing Counsel of American Express, said:

We believe the terms of the settlement continue to balance the interests of Card Members and merchants.

“While the modification of our contract provisions gives merchants some additional flexibility, many merchants continue to believe, as we do, that surcharging is fundamentally anti-consumer. Few merchants have taken advantage of earlier opportunities to surcharge out of concern that it could risk alienating customers, and drive them to patronize competitors who do not surcharge.

"Merchants choose to accept American Express because we help them reach millions of customers who value the convenience, rewards, and world class service that our payment products provide. Unlike Visa and MasterCard, we do not have market power. We operate a competitive, dynamic business with a unique business model. Resolving these lawsuits will allow us to stay focused on helping merchants build their business and strengthen their customer relationships.”

The first lawsuit, In re American Express Anti-Steering Rules Antitrust Litigation, challenges the Non-Discrimination Provisions in the company’s merchant contracts. The second lawsuit, In re Marcus Corporation, challenges American Express’ Honor All Cards Provisions.

The changes to the Non-Discrimination and Honor All Cards Provisions will take effect after the resolution of any appeals to the final approval of the settlement, unless voluntarily implemented by American Express at an earlier date.

If the settlement terms are approved by the Court, all merchants who accept American Express cards in the United States will be bound by the changes to American Express’ Non-Discrimination and Honor All Cards Provisions and by the agreement not to make any future claims relating to these contract provisions for a period of at least 10 years after the changes are implemented.

U.S. Bank and American Express Announce Card-Issuing Agreement

USBank logo 140pxU.S. Bank and American Express have announced that U.S. Bank will offer credit cards accepted on the American Express network in 2014.

We actively listen to our customers and are focused on delivering the right financial solutions that best meet their needs,” said Pam Joseph, Vice Chairman of U.S. Bank.

“We believe that the American Express network provides a combination of benefits and services that many of our customers want. We’re proud to partner with American Express, a company with a rich history of service that’s dedicated to providing outstanding customer value.”

U.S. Bank is now working with American Express to design programs for U.S. Bank’s customers and expects to begin offering cards on the American Express network by fall 2014. The new American Express-branded cards will be available online, at U.S. Bank’s 3,088 branches and by phone.

American Express Introduces Use Points for Charges on Smartphones

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express has launched a new Use Points for Charges feature available in the American Express mobile app that gives eligible Card Members the option to redeem Membership Rewards points for practically any purchase, from gas and groceries to clothing and manicures, all on their smartphones.

“We’re committed to making Membership mobile, recognizing a future where decisions on what, where, and how to buy increasingly happen through mobile devices,” said David Yoo, SVP Mobile Products and Services, American Express. “We want to be where our Card Members are so that they can get the most out of Membership every day, and we can do that by connecting our Card products to the mobile devices our Card Members rely on most.”

The company describes how it works:

  • Download or upgrade the free iOS or Android American Express mobile app
  • Make an eligible purchase over $1.00 using your eligible Card enrolled in the Membership Rewards program
  • Open the mobile app and select Use Points for that particular charge once it hits your statement
  • A credit in the amount of the charge is applied to your account

Unlike rewards programs that only allow customers to redeem from a pre-selected list of options, American Express says its Card Members now have the power to design their own rewards program and treat themselves by redeeming points for almost any purchase with an eligible American Express Card.
