Can You Cancel an American Express Card through Live Chat?

American Express Card

Whenever I cancel a credit card, I usually call in first to see if there is some sort of retention offer. However, I’ve been a bit busy and didn’t want to waste time on the phone.

The annual fee posted for my Delta SkyMiles Business American Express Card and I definitely didn’t want to pay the $95 fee.

I logged onto to Amex account and figured I’d give the live chat a try. Continue reading Can You Cancel an American Express Card through Live Chat?

Did I Get A Retention Offer for the Mercedes Benz Amex Platinum Card?

Mercedes Benz

Around one year back I received the American Express Mercedes Benz Platinum Card.

The card comes with all of the benefits of a regular Platinum card along with a $100 certificate good for accessories from Mercedes Benz. (We got a few umbrellas and a mug with it.)

When the $475 annual fee posted, I had a big decision to make- keep it or close it. Continue reading Did I Get A Retention Offer for the Mercedes Benz Amex Platinum Card?

Trouble Enrolling In Flex Payment 10,000 Bonus American Express Points Offer

american express points

The primary way most of us earn miles and points is through credit card sign up bonus offers. Each year I’m finding it harder and harder to find new cards to apply for.

Some obstacles that get in the way are things like the Chase 5/24 rule and other banks which allow one bonus per card. Basically, if you get lots of cards each year, good luck getting Chase cards and if you’ve had some cards from select banks, you won’t be able to get the bonus over and over again.

Last year I was approved for the American Express Platinum Mercedes Benz card. The card came with a bonus of 75,000 American Express points. Continue reading Trouble Enrolling In Flex Payment 10,000 Bonus American Express Points Offer

This has got to be the easiest $5 that I’ve ever earned…

I received an e-mail from American Express telling me about a way to “get $5 back in a few steps“. While $5 won’t make anyone rich, I figured that it wouldn’t hurt to see what I had to do to get the credit. Continue reading Log In to the Amex Mobile App, Get A $5 Statement Credit

Amex Offers: Spend $1000 on Delta, Get $200 Back

Amex Offers

It’s been a while since one of the Amex Offers really caught my eye.

Back in November 2015, there was an offer to get $50 off $100 with Airbnb. With this offer I bought Airbnb gift cards at 50% off! There’s also been other lucrative offers in the past. Another that stands out was from June 2015. With this offer Amex gave $75 statement credits when making a purchase of $250 or more at select stores. Thanks to this offer I got $375 in free money!

I just received a new offer from Amex Offers which can potentially save me $200 on a future flight! Continue reading Amex Offers: Spend $1000 on Delta, Get $200 Back

Did I Receive A SPG Amex Business Card Retention Offer

Last year I wrote about my SPG Amex business card retention offer.

I was offered a statement credit for my loyalty not a credit for my annual fee. This seemed like a play on words to me but it really made no difference either way.

The annual fee recently posted once again and it was time to make a call to see what Amex could do about my annual fee. Continue reading Did I Receive A SPG Amex Business Card Retention Offer

American Express Card Lost, Can You Get Replacement Card Number for Immediate Use?

American Express Card

In late June I was approved for the American Express Delta Gold Business card. I’ve been working towards hitting the minimum spend required to earn the 50,000 mile bonus.

Over the weekend I was looking for my card. I didn’t bring it along on my trip to Mexico so I wanted to start using it again to complete the minimum spend.

I looked in all of the places I would store the card but it was nowhere to be found! Continue reading American Express Card Lost, Can You Get Replacement Card Number for Immediate Use?

Did You Close Amex Card In Hopes of Getting JetBlue Barclaycard Bonus?

JetBlue Barclaycard

When it was announced that current American Express JetBlue credit card holders would have their card transferred to the new JetBlue Barclaycard, I told Kim that she had to close her card ASAP.

I originally figured that American Express would want to transfer her card to another one of their products and was a bit surprised to hear what would be happening. Continue reading Did You Close Amex Card In Hopes of Getting JetBlue Barclaycard Bonus?

What Did I Do With 100K Amex Membership Rewards Points

Amex Membership Rewards points

I recently had a very important decision to make with 100,000+ American Express Membership Rewards points.

The fee was due on my American Express Business Gold Rewards card. At $175 per year, we’re talking a pretty significant fee. Since I had over 100,000 Membership Rewards points in my account, I needed to decide whether or not I should pay the fee or transfer my points and close my card.

I had mentioned that I would not pay the fee or transfer the card to a no fee Membership Rewards earning account in my previous post.

So what did I do? Continue reading What Did I Do With 100K Amex Membership Rewards Points
