For a quicker, easier and more convenient way to pay

You can now use your American Express® Card to pay using contactless in thousands of shops, restaurants and bars around the UK — and the list is growing every day. It's far more convenient than a pocket full of loose change, and not to mention more rewarding. For every cup of coffee, every newspaper, and every tasty lunchtime snack bought on your American Express Card, you can benefit from the same great loyalty programme with your contactless transactions as you do with Chip and PIN. So for a quicker, easier and more convenient way to pay, go contactless today.

 

Step one – Check Card

 

Check your American Express Card to make sure it displays the contactless symbol.

For newly issued Cards, the first time you spend you'll need to make a Chip and PIN purchase. Once you've made that first purchase on your Card, it'll be automatically activated for contactless payments.

 

Step two – Touch Card on reader

Simply touch your contactless American Express Card on a contactless-enabled card reader to pay for items up to a value of £20 per transaction.

 

Step three – Enjoy

That's it. You've successfully made a contactless payment, safe in the knowledge that you're covered by the same fraud protection that guarantees Chip and PIN transactions.
