But credit cards are not one-size-fits-all. So the best American Express credit card for one person may not be the best for someone else. And the best Amex card for others could be none at all. That's especially true if you don't have good or excellent credit. None of the cards issued by Amex are intended for people with lower scores. A USAA secured credit card on the American Express network is your only option in that case.
If you have the good credit or better needed to qualify for an Amex-issued card, we can tell you which ones are best suited to different types of spending, so you can make an informed decision.
