Will i be able to preorder with my american express or is it only master card and visa>?
BTW - be prepared for a beating...
lol. you will be fine
Looks like a "yes"
Yes it's a credit card right?
Only Debit Cards need the MasterCard or Visa Logo.
Many companies do not take American Express due to their costs to vendors.
I bought my 3G with an AmEx card, so I don't see why not. (But we didn't have the pleasure of a pre-order at that time - still can't see why it would be a problem, however. Apple takes AmEx for everything else. Use it for all my electronics purchases.)
Many smaller companies, yes, but Apple can't afford to not take American Express. I can't think of a single large company that doesn't take AmEx. The only exclusions to the list are companies with credit card tie-ins, like Sam's Club.
Apple took my iPad pre-order with my AMEX card. While some places don't take it, I have yet seen a Fortune 200 company not take my AMEX card.
Why do some of these threads get made! A credit card, is a credit card, lol.
Thank you very much...I was answering iTravis' comment...
Do you guys actually own an American Express card? There are MANY locations / companies (even "big" ones) that do not take it. It's a valid question.
Uh, that's only cause American Express and Discover don't have any debit/Amex or Discover cards.
The whole point of having the Visa/MC logo is it is accepted anywhere those cards are cause they can use it like a Visa/MC and it some how ends up out of yoru account eventually. But from the vendor standpoint it acts like a credit card. It would be the same if there were amex/discover debit cards. If they take amex or discover, they'd take a debit with that logo (you'd have to sign like a credit card though and not use your pin number).
Do you honestly think AT&T and Apple wouldn't take an American Express card? A card that has high level tiers of credit? Not to mention it's a well known business expense card company as well. I'm more than sure plenty of AT&T and Apple customers have bought millions of dollars worth of product with an American Express card.
I have one, and I haven't had one place tell me they don't except it.
Sure I believe they will...I didn't ask the original question...
I own one. It's my main card. I don't have too much issue with finding places that accept it. It's mostly small local places that don't. Biggest chain I've been to that doesn't is either KFC or Subway and those are cause they are local owned and it is up to the franchise owner (some Subways take it, some don't. Don't go to that many different KFCs, just know the one near me doesn't take it).
Because there are a lot of perks. Do you remember when the original iPhone came out and the price was reduced a couple of months later? AE refunded the difference to all their customers.
Absolutely. I love my AMEX card. I use it every where I can. I agree with the other poster with KFC. I think they are the ones that don't take it. The Subway in the Walmart where I work even takes it. I use it for the rewards. It's also have a 1 year extended warranty built in. If it breaks after the normal warranty period, give AMEX a call and they fix it for you. All for free. Travel Insurance is nice too. But I digress.
