@WhoAcceptsAmex Thanks for contributing to the thread.
I like the change you’ve made to your category lists. This really helps us see at-a-glance which retailers in a particular category accept Amex.
Personally, I’d like to see you remove the two-click process we have to go through to see further info when clicking on a retailer. It’s the 2nd step (‘click to reveal more’) that really irritates me. I also get irritated by you automatically launching the website of the retailer. I find it perfectly acceptable and expected for you to have ads on the site and referral/affiliate links on your pages for each retailer. Its just the automatic launching of links and forcing us through more steps than necessary (presumably to launch more ads) that irritates me.
In terms of functionality, what I’d like to see you add to the category list is a symbol that indicates variable Amex acceptance at a particular retailers where relevant. For example, for Costa Coffee your symbol should not be a tick, it should be some symbol that denotes the variable nature of the Amex acceptance at that retailer.
Then when you click through to the Costa Coffee page the information on the variable nature of acceptance should be more specific than what you have, which currently is “If accepted, Costa Coffee may only take your American Express card online, at some stores/franchises/branches/online, over the phone and/or via mail order, on all or some products and services”. That seems to be an incredibly vague, catch-all type statement.
