You can use AMEX to top-up your Go Card in Queensland at 7-Eleven outlets and a number of newsagencies that accept AMEX (often with no surcharge). It just doesn't work at station top-up machines or online. ;)

Does anybody know of any health insurers who accept AMEX? I'm about to change so it's worthwhile taking this into consideration.

Bupa also accepts AMEX via direct debit which you can set up via the Bupa website.For car insurance, Suncorp, RACQ and AAMI all spring to mind (at least when I last looked). NRMA stopped accepting AMEX quite a while back, and I can't remember whether Allianz accepts or not.

I am enjoying the Shop Small Promo at the moment. Spend $20 and get $10 back. Lot's of smaller businesses in the local area. The map based page that Chris linked at the start of the thread is great for searching out these businesses.

The good old ATO also accepts AMEX (with a surcharge of course) so I get some (0.5 points per $) relief for all the money I send to Canberra that is applied to so many worthy causes !

Another place that surprisingly doesn't take Amex is Costco.

A quick search through the list of businesses accepting AMEX would hint at purchases of not high cost/value where the charge would be minimal in comparison to the sale value. In my own business where I sell appliances up to $50G each then AMEX represents a high cost. The card is therefore not acceptable in my business where margins are small.

So where is American Express accepted, then?
