Rated 4 out of 5 by Hard to find places to use I find that not enough places use AMEX. I am also disappointed for the bonus point mall to be discontinued March 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a card to use for your vacation! This card will frequently get declined when used out of State and especially for international purchases such as an airline flight with an non-US airline. Each time a decline happens it takes about 30 minutes with them to validate your identity including asking you all about you last transactions before they will address the issue. Last month despite three separate sessions with customer support I was unable to book our summer family vacation flights to Ireland. Its great for normal local shopping and online shipping to your home address. March 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good cash back -- bad security features The 2% cash back to my Fidelity account works very well. The main problem with the card is the security system. Even though I have called FIA card services to notify them before travelling my card has often been frozen for the duration of my trips. I was told by an FIA card services representative that the system is automatic and there is no way to enter travel information that would disable the automatic blocking system. So it seems to be a waste of time calling them in advance. March 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Great deals, no annual fee, cash back (2%), no hassles or fees March 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great card but lack feature Love the rewards & the auto redemption to my fidelity account. I would add more authorize users & use it more often if spending on different cards can be track separately like the other AX cards. Also need to eliminate the foreign transaction fee. March 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by No Apple Pay For months, all that customers have been told is that Fidelity is working on the card being set up with Apple Pay, without being provided with any time frame for when this is likely to occur. When you call FIA, the representatives are totally in the dark about if and when this is likely to occur. The lack of information is very frustrating and is leaving me thinking I should switch to another card which already accepts Apple Pay. March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-To Card Every Chance I Get Do the math: I average $2000 each month times 12 months for more than 3 years. That's at least $1500 cash into my Fidelity account without any extra effort or expense. I still get a kick out of mentally subtracting the 2% from the posted gas price at the pump, and when I pay a larger bill (such as the $5000 I had to shell out to the dentist), knowing I was saving a hundred bucks made it a little easier to take. And, on the two occasions when my account number was compromised, a ten-minute phone call had a new card overnighted to me with no problems. March 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stuck with Penalties I paid on line and got stuck with penalties and interest because they said the payment wasn't received. I won't use this card again. Customer service was no help. March 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Customer Service on an Otherwise Great Card I enthusiastically applied for this card and love the 2% cash rewards and the linkage to my Fidelity account. What I can’t stand is the customer service provided by FIA, the servicer. Four times over the past six months, my card has been frozen and charges declined for “fraud alerts.” In each case, after waiting on an extensive hold, I reviewed the “suspicious” charges and found them to be normal, recurring and for modest amounts. The last straw occurred yesterday when I was frozen again. When I first called, I was told that their systems were down and I should call back later. Upon calling a second time, one of the “suspicious” transactions was over two months old. I asked why it would have been flagged as I had already seen the bill, reviewed all the charges and paid the balance. They had no answer. The other two charges were for local merchants where we shop weekly. For a company such as Fidelity who focuses on customer service, they need to reevaluate their credit card partner if they don’t was disappointed clients. I cannot recommend this card until the customer service improves. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE? before i applied and received the card i read all the negative reviews. who needs a cc in his wallet that's a problem to use, right? but since i got the card and have been using it a year, i'm really puzzled by the negative reviews. some criticized the card because of the "declines". i think what they mean is that a large number of smaller merchants don't take american express. most people know that. it's not a reason to write a negative review. it works fine for me, and the time i needed customer service that was easy too. so i'm writing to say don't let the negative reviewers make your decisions for you. March 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rewards I use this card everywhere AmEx is accepted. 2% cash back is terrific. I highly recommend it. Why wouldn't you use it? March 5, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by overly cautious fraud protection I stopped using my card because Fidelity/ FIA refused a number of charges they considered suspicious and suspended use until I called to confirm. The last straw was a pharmacy charge even though I was there in person and had charged purchases in that same pharmacy several times before. They should have at least called the pharmacy to see speak to me to check. I called to complain and asked for a call back from a supervisor which I never received. So, I just stopped using the card. I do not have this problem with the other credit cards I use. March 5, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great card, but makes it very difficult to dispute fraud charges Fidelity Rewards Amex has been my primary card for years. Unfortunately recently I got a fraudulent charge from B&M store. So far it was impossible for me to resolve a dispute. Dispute department refuses to credit the charges. Very unfortunate situation for otherwise great card. March 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by does not work with Apple Pay 2% rewards are good but does not work with Apple Pay unlike most other American Express cards. Fidelity and FIA Card Services, please enable Apple Pay on this card as soon as possible. Most other card providers have been supporting Apple Pay for months. Thanks. March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2% no limit, no exclusions, redeem anytime Nothing beats the rewards from Fidelity AMEX. The ability to get your rebate as often as you wish (assuming you've accrued enough points, which isn't hard) is a huge plus. The 2% starts from the first dollar (no minimum) and has no cap. It applies to all purchases, so you don't have to remember what category is in season. Great card! March 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great rewards, awful site Review title says it all. 2% on everything is awesome. Best deal out there. Wish it were easier to manage online, including scheduling payments for full amount and being able to print details of an individual transaction. Also, the site makes Fidelity look second rate. But then, that's true of the site all around, not just for card services. I'd have far more assets with Fidelity (and use the card more) if you made it easier for me to work with your site. March 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fidelity credit card A major disappointment. I cannot use the card because it does not download into QuickBooks- which is the accounting system I use. The card only downloads into Quicken. Please Fidelity- get your act together. March 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 2 hr. wait time to report fraud Huge wait times to report fraud charges Latest fraud charge was made 2 days after being issued a new card due to suspected hacking. March 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2% back on everything I opened this card to capture 2% back on all purchases when paired with a Cash Management account. It has done just that and is fairly easy to integrate with my other Fidelity accounts. One improvement I would like is the ability to redeem awards at lower levels than the $50 minimum, since these transactions are all electronic I hope this would be possible. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic rewards Fidelity is a one stop shop for all financial needs and this card lives up to Fidelity's name. The rewards are top in the industry, the customer service representatives are pleasant and quick to answer questions. Unlike many other credit card companies, this bill comes well in advance of the due date. The AE card compliments Fidelity's Visa card nicely. These are the only 2 credit cards I will carry. February 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fraud department does not pick up their phone Great card for rewards etc. Have been using for 4 years. Has saved me thousands But now unable to reach their fraud department Recent trip to Canada triggered a hold and have tried 5 times to call them during the last 3 days and their fraud department does not pick up. I waited over 30 minutes each time. Tried weekdays and weekends , morning and night. At this point starting to understand they dont want my business February 24, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Amazing card, when it works Worst customer experience I've ever had with any product or service. The only reason I tolerate it is because of the 2% cash back, but now there are alternatives so I have no reason to use this card for my daily expenditures. Fraud protection is so overzealous that my card is declined at least every two weeks. They always promise to fix it, but it's the same story every time, and nothing happens. 90 minute+ hold times to speak with customer service. When I do connect, every now and then they accidentally hang up on me, so I have to get back in the queue. I've gotten stuck at so many cash registers on hold while trying to get my card unlocked, it's become a running joke. February 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Be careful!! I read all the reviews about how this is the best value in credit cards. I took advantage of the 0% on transfers and paid it off within a few months, but because I had a rotating balance (I paid the full balance each month) I was charged interest on an amortized amount of my transfer even after I paid the transfer fee. Could be a great card, just don't transfer a balance. February 20, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by No backup while traveling Beware. If you are on vacation and incur a fraudulent charge, your account is put on hold and they cannot get a card to you for at least a week. Unlike some other cards, there is no capability to limit transactions to the area that you are traveling to. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great card - don't change anything! Amazing card, very easy to use with Fidelity account. February 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Put a potential fraud hold on my account without cause I was informed that a hold had put on my account because of three "unusual transactions." All three were made by the legit holders of the cards at stores frequented by them. I called and answered a recording that described each transaction and explained that all were correct. I was told the hold would be lifted in 10 minutes. It was still on the next afternoon, causing a large purchase to be declined. It then took my waiting an hour to get to customer service, where a person asked me about exactly the same transactions. February 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by easy and reliable The card is easy to use at point of purchase. It is also easy to pay the bill each month online. I like being able to see my balance each time I log in to Fidelity. Customer service is also helpful and friendly. They also pritoritize security. February 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Customer Service Imaginable By far the worst customer service I've ever experienced for a credit card. Was getting multiple holds a week for suspected fraud when I was making normal every day purchases. As far as I could tell, the automated system to clear the fraud alert would ask you to verify every single past purchase I'd ever made. There was no end in sight, and after verifying 20+ purchases I gave up and called a representative. Getting adjustment to fix a double payment to my bill has taken over three weeks and still hasn't been refunded. Told it will post in 7-10 business days, but I don't see the payment returned, so I call and am told it's 3-5 more business days. 5 days pass and when I call back am told that it will be another 3 business days and if it doesn't show then it will need to be reissued - which I imagine will start this cycle all over again... Other issues: Phone payments are not reflected online. Website is a piece of junk. Automated payments can't be scheduled (except in fixed amounts). February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like my Fidelity Rewards AmEx Card It works great. Customer support is fine. Web access is good. February 10, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great Cash Back - Horrible Service I have been using this card for about 2 years . If you can put up with their horrible customer service and denial of payments its a great card. Keep in mind this is not your normal AMEX card and if you travel you're going to have a lot of problems. We have homes in the South and Northeast and when we travel between them we have to call a couple of times before they allow charges. The same happens when you travel abroad and even after you list the countries the charges are sometimes denied. Recently we had some fraudulent charges which they took care of but we still haven't received our replacement card. It turns out if you need your card overnight you must ask them, if not, they send it regular mail. The bottom line is that if you can put up with all the nonsense its a great card....
