I don't have any first-hand stories on the Amex roadside service, but I'll say first it depends on what card(s) you have.
If you just have the Zync charge, you have to pay for any and all roadside help services- they pretty much just provide the contact for help to get to you, and you pay for some gas, a battery, tow, etc.
From there though, the Green charge and higher tier cards offer to pay up to $50 of the service cost(s), depending on how far away you are from home, respectively. I think they issue you a statement credit at that point, am I correct guys?
It also depends on the towing company, state, etc. I have AAA auto for all my roadside issues this year, so I couldn't tell you. With my old car, I figured I could use the benefits of AAA Premier anyway. One tow in general though may cost you well over $50 if you're far away enough from your towing destination.
Details can be found at the Amex site. Sorry if this doesn't make sense- I'm typing this one on the quick before heading out to dinner!
