    If you have an online login to amex there should be an option to go paperless. They will stop sending you letters and just give you online statements. I do that with my bank WF.

    Ask for statements online only. They will be happy to stop sending you paper statements in the mail in order to save trees(postage). Most credit card issuers offer this online without having to call customer service. This will give you your privacy.

    If you are genuinely old enough to have an American Express credit card, you are an adult and can therefore take legal action against your parents for invasion of privacy OR tampering with your mail if they do it without your consent

    Most would be happy to send you email statements only.

    However, if your parents are also on the account they have a right to see what you are buying.

    Have you asked them not to open your mail ?

    If they cosigned they probably want to make sure you are paying as agreed. Or even if not.

    Speak to American Express, I think the answer will be in the negative though due to money laundering rules, you have to be living at the address that you have registered with them...otherwise they may assume that you're not who you say you are.
