This whitepaper proves Millennials’ value to Merchants—these young Card Members can mean big business, thanks to increasing income levels and savvy spending habits.
Why it pays to sign more merchants.
On average, the annual spend of an American Express® Card Member is 3.1X that of non-Card Members3
On average, the transaction size of an American Express Card Member is 1.8X that of non-Card Members4
Based on that higher purchase price, American Express Card acceptance could generate more revenue per purchase transaction compared to other general purpose cards.
