We’re seeing a trend here with Amex, Paypal, Visa/Mastercard and Chase pushing for these payment platforms. Chase has been pushing the use of Chase Pay with their cards and had increased the incentives in using Chase Pay. Now, here’s Amex promoting Amex Express Checkout. This gives us, Amex and Chase customers, more opportunities to earn points with their programs.

I, myself, have used Chase Pay and PayPal many times. I’ve seen Amex Express Checkout as an option but since there was no incentive for me to use it, I plainly ignored that option. Now that there’s a promo with earning additional reward points, I’ll be more inclined to use it in the future.

How about you? Have you used Amex Express Checkout?
