U.S Bank to Begin Issuing American Express Credit Cards
U.S. Bank announced today that it will begin offering credit cards accepted on the American Express network in the fall of 2014.
The cards will be available to bank customers in the 3,088 branches of U.S. Bank, as well as online and by phone. U.S. Bank customers will also have a choice of obtaining a Visa or MasterCard.
U.S. Bank becomes another major bank to form a partnership with American Express. As previously reported in August, Wells Fargo began issuing new credit cards accepted on the American Express network on a limited basis this year, with a full scale launch planned for the first half of 2014.
Pam Joseph, Vice Chairman of U.S. Bank, said in a statement, “We believe that the American Express network provides a combination of benefits and services that many of our customers want.”
