Ability to have a duplicate AMEX?

Postby ssj95 » Thu Dec 01, 2016 12:22 pm

Hello,

I enjoy traveling a lot, that being said; is it possible for me to carry a duplicate of my AMEX card? Meaning the same number just a copy of it. Just incase I lose one in a foreign country I can come home and still have one waiting.. //without delay of replacing

Thank You.

Thank You.


Call them and ask for an additional card that matches your current info so that you have a backup. Some card companies will be glad to do that and others won't. Otherwise, It is possible in that you could simply ask for a replacement card (not lost/stolen). As long as your current card was issued recently there should not be any problems. If your current card has been issued for awhile there is a chance the replacement card will be given a different 4 digit Amex code (on the front of the card) a new CVV number on the back of the card and expiration date.

This is something that is very easy with Discover; you can have multiple designs of the same card active. With everyone else, it's not so common. Technically, having Apple Pay is very much like having an additional card active, but not everybody accepts that. You could possibly have to ask for an additional authorized user if Amex doesn't let you have two identical cards.

Thanks you both, Apple pay is a good idea as well.

Thanks:)
