What the American Express Supreme Court victory means for you

 Say they charge merchants.

Swipe fees vary, and Mastercard and Visa may charge more or less when other factors — such as acquirer fees and network fees — are taken into account. American Express has historically charged more than its competitors, the Wall Street Journal reported . But over time it has lowered its fees, and there is now “little or no difference between our average rates and the cost of acceptance for Visa and Mastercard credit cards in the U.S. today,” a spokesman for American Express told MarketWatch.

American Express has argued that its clients have higher incomes and spend more, justifying the higher swipe fees. Several U.S. states and the Justice Department brought an antitrust case against American Express. But the Supreme Court ruled in American Express’s favor.

Meanwhile, Visa and Mastercard have also been attempting to settle a separate antitrust lawsuit against them , the Wall Street Journal reported.

The companies did not immediately respond to MarketWatch’s request for comment.

Does American General Finance help to rebuild bad credit?

I have really bad credit from the past, but I am now paying off my old debt and trying to start new and build up my credit. A coworker told me that American General Finance can help me to rebuild my credit. Is this true?


i am currently paying off a loan from american general. this business is not really to build up your credit. it is a loan company. the best way to build up credit is to get a secure credit card through your bank.
