Amex change PIN via online account

I received a new Amex card today and noticed there was a change PIN option in the online account management (can’t see it in the iPhone app though). You enter the new PIN, then go and use the card with the old PIN for a normal chip and PIN transaction and during the transaction your new PIN gets written to the card.

What can I say… it worked without a problem at all :slight_smile:

I’ve read about some banks being able to do this, but it is the first time I’ve come across it myself. Is it just Amex in the UK or are there banks that do this too?
