Dow 30 component American Express Company (AXP), and its subsidiaries provide customers and businesses globally with charge and credit payment card products and travel-related services. They look to enrich the lives of their customers and build business success.

The American Express Cash Magnet™ Card is the most recent addition to the American Express cash back portfolio. The card offers no annual fees and unlimited 1.5% cash back on purchases, including anything from a cup of coffee to a brand new couch.

With the card comes the option of Pay It Plan It™, the new payment tool that allows Card Members to have flexibility and control over how they will pay for the things they pay. Big purchases can be split up over time with a fixed monthly fee and no interest, while smaller purchases can be payed off as soon as they appear on the card bill. This can all be managed on the Amex Mobile App.

The Cash Magnet Card is also offering a special launch offer through July 18. Card Members have the chance to earn up to $300 cash back. The New Card Members can earn $150 back after spending $1000 in the first 3 months of Card Membership. They can also earn an additional $150 back after spending another $6,500 during the first 12 months of Card Membership.

With all this, the card still features many of the same benefits and services of American Express Card Members such as complimentary ShopRunner members and Amex Offers.

More information on the new Card can be found at americanexpress.com/CashMagnetCard.
