Yes, it does. You will be able to use this card everywhere American Express credit cards are accepted. Generally, American Express cards are widely accepted across the USA and not so well abroad. If you think you will have problems with an American Express credit card, you can apply for an additional Visa or MasterCard credit card. They are accepted virtually everywhere in the world where credit cards are accepted. Here on our site you can find a selection of cards specifically for frequent travelers. All of these cards come with the EMV chip technology, meaning that you won’t have any problems with acceptance. Besides, you will earn miles for any of your purchases including flights on the airlines of your choice and other purchases too. These cards are universal and allow you to earn even when you are no traveling.

One of the best examples of such cards is the Discover it® Miles card. This card is universal and is not tied to any airlines meaning that you can earn and redeem rewards for any airline ticket of your choice. It earns you 1.5 miles per dollar and matches all the earned miles at the end of the first year for new cardmemebers.
