To pay an American Express bill by phone, call Amex at 800-472-9297, enter the card number when prompted, and select the option to make a payment from the automated menu. Then, follow the instructions to pay your Amex bill by phone, which will include entering the account and routing numbers for the bank account you’ll be using to pay. It is not currently possible to pay with a credit card or debit card.
Paying by phone is fee-free, and it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But if you’re having trouble paying your American Express bill by phone, you can always call customer service at 1 (800) 528-4800 for assistance.
Also, keep in mind that while you can pay your American Express credit card bill by phone, that’s not the only way to pay. The fastest method is probably to pay through your online account or through the mobile app. You can also mail a check or money order, but that’s the slowest payment option. Making an American Express payment by phone is especially convenient in situations when you don’t have a computer or internet access, though.
