How To Make an American Eagle Credit Card Payment

BestStockFoto /

American Eagle Outfitters, founded in 1977, operates more than 1,000 stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China and Hong Kong. Shoppers who like the trendy clothing and accessories AEO offers can score some great deals by signing up for an AEO Connected store credit card or AEO Connected Visa credit card issued by Synchrony Bank. Both cards come with perks like a 20% discount on your first purchase, 4x rewards points on jeans, free shipping and member-only exclusives.

Once you’ve used your card, you’ll need to make a payment to keep your account in good standing. Synchrony offers you three payment options: online, by mail and over the phone. Here’s everything you need to know.

How To Make a Payment Online

Making an online payment is simple. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the American Eagle account login page.
  2. First-time users without an American Eagle login will need to register first. You’ll need your mother’s maiden name, your date of birth, the last four digits of your Social Security number and your email address.
  3. Once you’ve registered, log in to your account with the username and password.
  4. Have your bank account number and your bank’s routing number ready.
  5. Click “Pay Online” and follow the prompts to complete the payment.

If you don’t want to register for an online account, you can use the “Pay as Guest” feature.

  1. Click “Pay as Guest” on the account login page.
  2. Enter your card number, the last four digits of your Social Security number and your billing ZIP code.
  3. Follow the prompts to complete the payment.

How To Make a Payment by Mail

You also have the option of mailing in your payment. Where you’ll mail it depends on whether you have the Real Rewards store card or Visa card. Here’s how:

  1. Write a check or purchase a money order for at least the minimum amount due.
  2. Include the payment coupon from your statement or write your account number on the check or money order so your account can be properly credited. Your payment can be delayed up to five days if you don’t include this information.
  3. Mail your payment to the address for your card type:

How To Make a Payment by Phone

You can pay your American Eagle card over the phone for free using the automated system. Here’s how:

  1. Call the number designated for your credit card.
    • AEO Connected credit card: 800-843-0875
    • AEO Connected Visa credit card: 866-913-6765
  2. Press “2” to use the automated service.
  3. Provide your account number.
  4. Select or say “Make a payment” when prompted by the system.
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the payment.

Although there is no charge to make a payment through the automated system, there is a fee to pay your bill by phone through a customer service agent.

Late Fees for American Eagle Credit Cards

It’s important to pay your American Eagle credit card bill on time each month. Payments are due before 5 p.m. EST on the due date listed on your statement. If you miss this cutoff, you can still pay your payment with one of the available payment methods. However, you’ll pay a late fee of $29. The fee increases to $40 for two or more late payments in a six-month period.
