Trust me, overall, and statistically speaking, AmEx (and Discover as well) is less accepted than Visa or MC.

But...obviously, if you haven't come across any issue with where you shop not accepting it, then stay with it.


I'm just saying that where ever i see Visa Accepted Amex is usually right next to it.

Food places
grocery store
doctor office
dating services

I have thought about applying for a Visa without a annual fee and if I can come across one then I may no longer need the Amex Card
