Rated 1 out of 5 by Security algorithm stinks I have had persistent problems with charges being declined, some overseas, some out of state and some around the corner at the drug store I have used for 20 years. In case no one has noticed air travel is cheap and people travel outside the US, the interstates have been around for years allowing easy movement around the US and in the north east travel from one state to another is not unusual given their proximity. What is the point of having a credit card which gets declined because I am lunching in CT rather than NY? Have wasted inordinate amounts of time trying to get this resolved but nothing changes. November 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice features but more trouble than it is worth Because of the generous cash back aspects, I have used this card for several years in spite of recurrent problems with FIA's security monitoring system which periodically locks my card---resulting in inconvenience, frustration, and time wasted. I use three other cards (one of which is AMEX so it is not an AMEX problem but an FIA Services problem) and have NEVER had similar issues. November 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior in most respects Every price out there has the cost of doing business with the credit card companies embedded within it. Cash back cards let you recapture some of that. Why this card? + liquid, spendable, value-defined CASH, not points or miles or seashells + automatic sweep MONTHLY to your account. No annual waits, no $50 increments, no BS + 2% cash back matches or exceeds every other card I've been able to find. - AMEX is not accepted everywhere. A Visa or MC with the same terms would be truly superior. As it is I carry this card AND another for vendors who don't take AMEX. November 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by FIA Cardservices is AWEFUL I have had the Fidelity America Express for a couple months now. I an used to first rate service from Fidelity, but FIA Cardservices is providing among the worst service I have experienced in my life. Their website doesn't work at times - and their customer service reps can't do much. Avoid this card! November 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't use if you travel overseas! I travel overseas often and ever time it gets declined. Card services says they are "protecting" you but in reality they are protecting themselves. You'll spend 15 mins speaking with card services to get your approval. By then I'm late for a meeting. No time for this silliness. Will cancel after this trip. I have brought this up numerous times but to no avail. November 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by FIA Amex Disappointed that this card does not have the same features that true AMEX card have. Especially the feature(s) that my other AMEX cards have that allow emails/text-messages to be sent upon any/all transactions. I consider these transaction alerts to provide a significant degree of peace of mind / security. November 12, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by No frills basic card with solid cash back returns. Totally skimmed down so not much by way of site capabilities or features but it gets the job done nicely and has probably the best cash back rewards out there. At the end of the day, this works great since cust service is strong, fraud detection is evident and you can get all the bells & whistles just by connecting with a free service like Mint.com November 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cash back program excellent, service not good 2% cash back is an excellent deal and the card is very convenient. As long as you don't have any problems (e.g. calling for information/service) it's a really good card. I'd give it all 5 stars if they improved their service. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rewards Great for making large investments that accept credit cards. November 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Set it and Forget It No gimmicks or remembering to transfer points...the money goes right in my Fidelity Cash Management account! November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased Excellent choice and I am pleased with features and their Customer Service. November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best card ever! Have no regrets or anything bad to say about a 2% Cashback card with no annual fee! November 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by I want cash not points I don't get cash, but WorldPoints -- why is this? when I get 5000 points they'll transfer $50 to my acct., which is equivalent of 2%, but why the extra step. This is not the way the account was portrayed!! I want cash! November 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great Rewards, Service Needs Improvement The card reward program is the best in the industry just as advertised. I have had issues with the card being rejected when I travel to a different US city and try and use the card. Keeps happening and customer service has been poor in resolving the problem. A card I can't use when I travel is not worth much to me since I travel all the time. My other credit cards outside of Fidelity do not have this issue. November 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by If it weren't for the 2% back, I'd never use it I solely signed up for this card because of the 2% back and auto redemption and deposit into 529 plans for my kids. I've been a long time American Express customer and figured the service would be of the same quality, if not identical. Not only isn't it the same, it is marginal at best, it reminds me of the worst Visa/MasterCard cards I've had in the past. The website is terrible, while they've improved the look in 2014, there is no improvement in functionality. Using Quicken to download data can only be done after the monthly statement closes, and moving through and back pages is disjointed due to multiple windows and a frequent lack of a "back" option. Lastly I've twice had to dispute charges on my card to which FIA Card Services, who runs the card, is of no help and a frequent roadblock. Why tell me to resolve it on my own, if I could do that I wouldn't be asking you for help? A real Amex card wouldn't do that. November 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Miserable customer service Get this card at your own peril. I saw the reviews prior to applying and should have heeded the warnings about the awful service provided by FIA Card Services. I figured it wouldn't be that bad...and after three months of being a cardholder severely regret that miscalculation. Since activating my card it has been nothing but a huge headache. Rejected $90 in charges one week into being an account holder at Target due to "lack of compatibility with my spending patterns." Ok, minor inconvenience, but at that point I didn't have any spending patterns so I'm not sure how the fraud protection systems are monitoring the account at that point. Regardless, that should be easy to fix, right? You'd think. It took 30 minutes of time on hold and another 10 minutes with the agent just to restore the ability to use the card. All of my other cards allow me to do this automatically with a phone call or by logging into the website. Pain in the rear... Online access? Constantly broken, severely limited functionality, frequent issues. Making online payments? Cumbersome and difficult to set up initially. After one month they decide to terminate my card and re-issue as a new number. During that time there was a three-day period when I couldn't make my payment online, conveniently in the days leading up to the payment being due. So I mailed it my check immediately after being unable to log on. It arrives one day late, so of course the late fee is slapped on and interest charged. I call to explain the circumstance and am told it is all my fault and shouldn't be expecting to make payments online. Customer service via the phone? Horrendous. Unfortunately, this card requires that you contact them frequently since it is nothing but problems. The reward points are nice but everything else about this card is one massive headache. I strongly encourage you not to get this card and look elsewhere. November 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great overall card Love the Fidelity Amex card and the 2% cash back option. It beats most other cards that have no annual fee. The only item that prevented me from giving excellent is the 3% foreign transaction fee. B/C of this, I use another card to travel internationally! October 31, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Everything is good except Everything is good. It is good to be able to connect the rewards with my Son's education investment but the card online experience and having two different login is very very old school. I wish Fidelity makes investment in consolidating card and fidelity sites, enable single sign on. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient and great rewards! Really like the ability to put rewards into my brokerage account. Do think you should convert to embedded chip in card. October 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Not great I love the card, the 2% and its wide acceptance. The Customer Service is very POOR. When fraud is suspected, the team will call on a hit and miss basis..Usually the card ends up declined. Almost all internet purchases result in a decline, airlines, Amazon etc, we need to use VISA. Our account has always been paid in full and the service is very week when compared to Visa The phone staff at other services is more responsive and better to deal with. October 28, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wish It Worked With Apple Pay! Love the rewards, but its my only Amex that does NOT work with Apple Pay, this makes it far less convenient then my other cards. Customer service is also challenging and at times takes far too long to get a person on the phone. October 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by cash back rolls to fidelity account Fidelity funds are my longest held investments and best performing overall. Having an AMEX card that earns 2% across the board AND can be readily deposited in a fidelity non-retirement account is my cup of tea! I hope I can someday make the deposit process automatic (i.e., not requiring my express input each time). October 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No Apple Pay support Disappointed to find out it does not support Apple Pay. Hope they fix this ASAP. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure Paymemts The next card must have EVM chip & pin and linked to Apple pay. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fidelity Amex Card The card is simple and straightforward, and the best overall cash-back deal available. Responding to the ad to apply for the card and establishing account settings through the Fidelity website, a bit more complicated, but at least you only have to do it once. There is no down-side to this card. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's the only card I use I use to carry several credit cards in my wallet and use various ones depending on what was the best cash back. Now I only carry my Fidelity card because it has the best cash back. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent card My only qualm is that there are some merchants who do not accept amex. With that being said, I use this card as often as possible. October 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Rebate Good. FIA Bad. The 2% cash back is tops and running it through a Fidelity account is not a problem. No other card can match that and that's why I have the card. FIA (the card servicer), on the other hand, is terrible. Compared to American Express, they are not in the same league. We have had more transactions declined by FIA for "security reasons" than all other cards combined. Extremely inconvenient. If they were really concerned about security, they would offer the option to text cardholders for all purchases, but they don't. Their website is rudimentary. Customer service runs hot and cold. Long wait times, wrong and conflicting answers. It's surprising they are still in business. After several years, I am considering going back to my real Amex card for world class service. October 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for you Anytime I travel, my card is declined. Yesterday I could not charge a $75 dinner in Sunnyvale, despite traveling there repeatedly. Despite giving them 10's of thousands of dollars of business a year, they would rather worry about fraud charges at this level and inconvenience me. I finally had it when the customer service rep asked me no less than 6 questions to verify my identiy, and wanted to ask a seventh. I said "no" he could not ask any more questions after getting my driver's license number, former place of residence with cross-street, login ID, card number, address, etc. This card is very convenient to pay and transfer rewards, but if you travel, prepare to have it declined every time you are away from home. Yes, calling my credit card company every time I travel is definitely too much to ask. I expect them to absorb a couple hundred dollars of fraudulent charges if necessary rather than decline my $30 charge at home depot, just to keep me happy. I give them many times that in fees. October 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by card is good, website not so much I really like the card and the 2% cash to a Fidelity account. The website is difficult to navigate and poorly designed. Also, I would like to be able to add this card to my American Express web portal along with my other AMEX cards, but the management structure does not allow that. October 17, 2014
