There is a "please pay by" date on the statement that is like 15 days after the statement closes, but that is actually just a suggestion. Payment is not considered late unless it has not been received by the time the next statement closes.

I don't know if Amex actually cares when you pay during the month. I use their autopay which makes the payment on the suggestion date. But I imagine they could look favorably at cardmembers who routinely pay earlier.
