Step 2. Once you are on the site, you will see a sample blue AMEX card. Enter your card details starting with the 4-digit card ID and then the 16-digit card number. You won’t be asked to enter any of your personal information on this page.
Step 3. Once you have entered the required information, click “Confirm”.
Step 4. On the next page, you will be asked to confirm if you have an online account on the American Express website or not.
Step 5. If you already have an account, all you will need to do is click “Login”. If not, you will click the “Register a new account” option. Click whichever of these options applies to you.
Step 6. If you are registering a new account, you will be required to enter your personal information. This will include your full name, age, date of birth, address, contact name, email address, and your mother’s maiden name. The information you enter at this stage should tally with the one you provided when you were signing up for your AMEX card.
