    How many Amex cards can I get? 13th Sep 17 at 12:46 PM
    I have recently got an Amex card to try. Very impressed so far with the benefits. I got £50 from Quidco, £100 Amazon voucher for spending over £3k (bought some business supplies) and got an extra £15 for registering it on Amazon to use with membership points plus the extra £14 of points from the £3k spend. Phew, so in total around £180 in benefits so I'm very pleased.

    The card is an Amex Gold Business Charge Card. It is in my personal name, but with my sole trader business name underneath.

    I see from their range they have a whole suite of cards with cashback, points and flight points.

    Do Amex allow you to have more than one card per person?

    I've presently got three credit cards (Gold, BAPP, SPG). In the past I've had either Gold or Platinum Charge Card plus two credit cards at the same time so assume the limit is at least three.

    Two charge cards and two credit cards used to be the limit - I don't know whether Business cards count separately or not.

    As Will states its 2 charge and 2 credit cards at any one time

    Charge cards = no credit limit pay off in full
    Credit Cards = Credit limit pay off in full or over time

    Their charge cards are:
    • Basic Card
    • 'The American Express Card' (a.k.a. The Green Card)
    • Preferred Rewards Gold Charge Card
    • The Platinum Card (*not* to be confused with the Platinum Cashback cards)
    • Centurion/Black Card (invite only)

    Everything else, with the possible exception of the Harrods card if that is still available, is a Credit Card.
