Reply to post: Amex

Google Pay heads for the desktop... and, we fear, an inevitable flop

Henry Blackman


I use an Amex Gold Charge - for the points mainly, and to ensure I don't spend too much - but I have yet, outside of the odd independent retailer and B&Q, found somewhere that doesn't accept it. All hotels, petrol stations, chain restaurants, supermarkets, major retailers (Apple, Starbucks, Costa, Currys/PC World, Boots, John Lewis, etc) all take it fine. Occasionally contactless Amex doesn't work (with Apple Pay or card) with some old machines, but otherwise perfect. You can usually use Paypal (I know) for online retailers that don't take it directly to accept it, and even with companies that don't take cards with Billhop (although they charge 2.5%).
