Free Two-Day Shipping for American Express Cardholders

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Anyone with an American Express credit card can get free expedited shipping on thousands of items from over 70 online retailers when they sign up for a free one-year ShopRunner membership, courtesy of American Express.

AmEx customers can save the $79 ShopRunner annual fee if they join before May 15, 2014. ShopRunner members receive free two-day shipping on their purchases, as well as a two-step express checkout. Returns are free and unlimited

Competing with Amazon Prime

ShopRunner’s membership cost is comparable to online shopping giant Amazon, which gives customers unlimited free two-day shipping with their annual Prime membership, which is also $79.

Like Amazon, ShopRunner lets folks order from a wide range of popular retailers, such as American Eagle Outfitters, Anne Klein, Brooks Brothers,, GNC, PetSmart, RadioShack, Sports Authority, Tommy Hilfiger and Toys”R”Us.

Many cards for many customers

American Express offers both charge cards and credit cards. Some have a fee and some do not. Charge cards must be paid in full each month, while credit card balances can be carried over from month to month.

They also have several types of reward cards, from cash back cards to co-branded airline cards like Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express. Business owners can choose from several different cards, all of which participate in the American Express OPEN Savings program. This gives discounts at retail partners like FedEx and OfficeMax.

Shop without worry

As a member of ShopRunner, people can find what they need, get it quickly, and return it for free if they aren’t satisfied with their purchase. That makes it easy to shop without worrying about extra costs for shipping or hassles with returns. Being able to try out a membership for an entire year for free sweetens the deal for many American Express cardholders.
