Yes, you can use Amex on Airbnb. Airbnb accepts credit cards and debit cards from American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover, and they will also process payments through Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal in countries where those services are available.
The best Amex card for Airbnb is the Wells Fargo Propel American Express card because it gives 3 points per $1 spent on travel purchases, including Airbnb bookings. The card has a $0 annual fee, so any rewards earned on Airbnb purchases are straight profit. Plus, you can redeem rewards points for a statement credit toward Airbnb charges on the card and get 1 cent per point in value.
Another good Amex Airbnb card is the American Express Green card, which also offers 3 points per $1 spent on Airbnb, and other travel purchases. It comes with a higher initial bonus of 45,000 points, compared to 20,000 points for the Propel card. However, Amex Green charges a $150 annual fee.
