If it were me, I would collect any rewards NOW. Then I would secure another card for business (visa/mc with a decent limit). Then I would call Amex and tell them that I was not giving them any info. at all and if they don't like it they can shove their card.
You don't need an Amex card. The others will work just fine, usually with no annual fee.
