American Express have received an average OPTIOSCORE for their Platinum Cashback Everyday Credit Card which is neither outstanding, nor disappointing. It’s very difficult to find any online reviews that are specific to this particular card, however the American Express brand in general are quite mixed. With a rating of ‘average’ from TrustPilot, customers are pleased with the reliability and online security, however there are customers that are dissatisfied with their customer service and that their cards aren’t accepted everywhere, although this is improving over time.

Overall verdict: The Platinum Cashback Everyday Credit Card from American Express does come with good benefits that will appeal to most customers, however, the cashback rates aren’t as good as other cards, even within American Express’s offering.
