ameriprise mastercard?

Postby Kino » Thu Jul 17, 2008 12:05 am

i was just at a strip mall and they had an office for ameriprise and they had a poster in the window for a mastercard? wtf why would an american express company advertise for a mastercard? they weren't just advertising either it was a card that was co-branded by ameriprise. lol american express co-branding a mastercard is about as messed up as you can get.

Ameriprise is no longer owned by American Express.

They must have parted on bad terms for Ameriprise to go out of their way and use Mastercard instead.

I don't think it's because they're on bad terms with American Express. They probably did it as a way to reiterate that they are now a seperate company from Amex.

Ameriprise wsa spun off in '05. They're a public company so you can look them up. Symbol = AMP. I don't know why Amex spun them off because they are almost a $10 billion dollar profitable company.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

That's weird they must have been buddy-buddy with amex a couple years ago. i got an offer in the mail on my american express blue card to signup for a consultation at ameriprise for retirement advice or something and they would send a $10 amex gift card. Apparently they were in cahoots with them back then. that's weird they would go choose the competition for their credit card... somethings up here.
