Many credit cards offer additional rewards for charges made in certain categories. However, it can be time consuming to find the credit card promotion that best suits your lifestyle if you want to maximize your rewards.

However Zync from American Express(SM) works fairly different. It offers several different options of incentive categories from which you can choose. These options, called “packs,” include:

  • Go (for travel)
  • Restaurant
  • Family Travel
  • Music (for concerts)
  • Style (for apparel)
  • Personal Finance
  • Connect (for broadband, mobile phones, etc.)
  • Food & Wine
  • Eco (for green merchants)

These packs cost anywhere from $0 to $25 annually, and their cost is tacked on to the standard $25 annual fee for the Zync card. While incentives vary, they may include double rewards points for purchases, access to special offers or events, and additional benefits offered by American Express. Because you pay your balance in full each month, there are no interest charges. Right now, Zync by American Express is offering 10,000 bonus points when you use the card for the first time.
