American Express is now a Which? Recommended provider for credit cards

American Express (Amex) has been rewarded for its improved customer satisfaction score by becoming a Which? Recommended Provider (WRP) for credit cards.

Alongside Amex, Capital One also regains its WRP status this month. Amex and Capital One have two of the best cashback deals on the market and customer satisfaction scores of 69% and 70% respectively.

The two top-placed providers, John Lewis/Waitrose and First Direct, have raised their scores from 87% to 88% and from 80% to 84% respectively, following our latest credit card survey.

Unfortunately, the list of companies given a Which? 'Warning' for poor customer service has also lenghthened, with Bank of Scotland and Santander joining ASDA and MBNA at the bottom of the table. Santander scores just 47%.
