In an attempt to clear up the confusion about Amex-issued versus Amex-processed cards, I want to compile a list current Amex offerings so people will know whether the card they are investigating is indeed issued by Amex and enjoys Amex benefits. I probably will miss some; please feel free to add and I will update the OP. The business version of consumer cards are not listed, for the sake of readability

Yes your list looks complete.
If you're looking to make a list that will be favorited by some, and maybe "stickied", maybe continually update with sign-up bonuses?

Sign-up bonuses info would be welcome.... I used to be pretty on top of the game but since I've been in the garden for 4 months I've lost track.

The Benz card is a charge? I thought it was a cc?

and the Dillards Amex
I think that one is a store card that simply authorizes against the Amex transactional network; this list if I read it right is cards which Amex offers directly.

Also add Asiana Airlines Amex to the list.
Likewise this is a BOFA (FIA) issued card which authorizes against the Amex network.
