Amex is a nickname for American Express, which is one of the largest financial services corporations in the world. Amex was founded on March 18, 1850 and began as a mail delivery business. But it now is a provider of credit cards, charge cards, traveler’s cheques, bank accounts and more.
Amex is similar to Discover in that both networks issue their own credit cards. Visa and Mastercard do not; all of their cards are issued by banks and credit unions. Amex has the lowest merchant acceptance rate of the four issuers both domestically and abroad.
