Split Purchases in the American Express® App

Now you can split your American Express® Green Card purchases with other Venmo or PayPal users, directly from the American Express® App. We'll divide up the total amount and send out the requests. As others pay you back, the money will be applied to your account with Venmo or PayPal. You’ll still keep all the rewards you earn for each purchase. Simple and rewarding — it’s just another way American Express has your back. Enrollment required.

Travel Benefits

Baggage Insurance Plan
Travel more comfortably knowing you can be covered by the Baggage Insurance Plan for eligible lost, damaged, or stolen baggage when you purchase the entire fare for a Common Carrier ticket (e.g. plane, train, ship, or bus) on your eligible Card. Coverage can be provided for up to $1,250 for carry-on baggage and up to $500 for checked baggage. For New York State residents, there is a $10,000 aggregate maximum limit for all Covered Persons per Covered Trip. Please read important exclusions and restrictions.
Car Rental Loss and Damage Insurance
When you use your eligible Card to reserve and pay for the entire eligible vehicle rental and decline the collision damage waiver at the rental car counter, you can be covered if the car is damaged or stolen. Please read important exclusions and restrictions. Not all vehicle types or rentals are covered. Coverage is not available for vehicles rented in Australia, Italy, and New Zealand. This product provides secondary coverage and does not include liability coverage.
Global Assist® Hotline
Sometimes the unexpected happens when you travel. A passport is lost. You come down with a sudden illness. A lawyer is needed. Being a Card Member can make things easier. Global Assist® Hotline can help you prepare for your trip with customs information and more. And while you're traveling more than 100 miles from home, coordination and assistance services such as lost passport replacement assistance, translation services, missing luggage assistance, and emergency legal and medical referrals are a phone call away. Card Members are responsible for the costs charged by third party service providers.
Trip Delay Insurance - Preferred Cards
Booking the trip is easy. Avoiding delays is next to impossible. If a round-trip is paid for entirely with your eligible Card on or after January 1, 2020, and a covered reason delays your trip more than 12 hours, Trip Delay Insurance can help reimburse certain additional expenses purchased on the same eligible Card, up to $300 per trip, maximum 2 claims per eligible Card per 12 consecutive month period. Terms, conditions and limitations apply.

Shopping Benefits

Purchase Protection
When an American Express® Card Member charges a covered purchase with their Card account, Purchase Protection can help protect their purchase for up to 90 days* from the date of purchase if it is stolen or accidentally damaged. The coverage is limited up to $1,000 per occurrence, up to $50,000 per Card Member account per calendar year. Please read important exclusions and restrictions.
Extended Warranty
When you use your American Express® Card for eligible purchases, you can get up to one extra year added to the original manufacturer’s warranty. Applies to warranties of 5 years or less. Please read important exclusions and restrictions.

Purchase and Payment Flexibility

Control How You Pay

As your spending needs change month to month, so can the way you pay your bill. You always have the option to pay in full. You also have the flexibility to carry a balance with interest or use Plan It® to split up large purchases into monthly payments with a fixed fee, up to your Pay Over Time Limit. You may be able to keep spending beyond your limit while still earning rewards – you’ll just need to pay for any new purchases in full when your bill is due.¤‡
