Cardholders can set up Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express automatic payments through their online account or the American Express mobile app. Calling customer service at 1-800-528-4800 also is an option. Once you're enrolled, American Express will withdraw the payment amount from your linked bank account on the scheduled date.
How to Set Up Amex Blue Cash Everyday Automatic Payments:
Log in to your online account via the American Express website or mobile app.
Find the "Payments" on the account home page and then select "Manage AutoPay."
Enter your bank account routing number and account number. This is the account from which American Express will deduct your payment each month.
Select your payment amount. Choose from the minimum amount due, the current balance, the statement balance, or a customized amount that is more than the minimum payment.
You should always make sure your bank account has enough funds for the payment a few days before the due date, to be safe. And once you're enrolled in automatic payments, don't forget to review your recent transactions regularly.
To set up American Express AutoPay, log in to an Amex account and click Payments in the blue navigation bar. Then, select Manage AutoPay and customize the monthly payment amount by deciding whether to pay the total new balance, minimum due, or a fixed amount. The total new balance is equivalent to paying the … read full answerstatement balance.
Next, enroll a new bank account or choose an already-enrolled bank account to link with your American Express credit card account. For this, you’ll need the bank account routing number, as well as the account number from which you wish to make payments. There will also be an option to set a payment date. The payment date can be changed every three months.
You can always go back and edit the settings later if you change your mind about how you’d like to pay. After you’ve adjusted the settings, it’s important to remember that it may take a billing cycle for AutoPay to start. You’ll need to continue making payments normally until that happens. If you forget, you’ll get hit with a late fee and possibly a reduced credit score.
The purpose of AutoPay is to remove the need for Amex customers to remember billing cycle due dates. Note, however, that only primary cardholders can enroll in AutoPay. In addition, setting up AutoPay doesn’t mean that you should stop looking at credit card statements. You’ll want to keep an eye out for fraud, and you’ll also want to know what your total balance is if you’ve chosen to pay less than your statement balance each month.
