American Express Card Changes: Claims Resolution, Person to Person Transactions & Plan It Feature

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend.  My American Express Gold Card statement just closed and I noticed that there were a few “Important Changes” listed at the bottom of my statement.  I will share the details of those changes and provide my thoughts.  There was also a change to the Plan It feature listed on my American Express Everyday Credit Card statement, which I will share at the bottom of the post.  To get started, American Express announced immediate changes to the “Claims Resolution and Claims Resolution for Covered Borrowers” section and upcoming changes regarding “Limits on person-to-person transactions” that will go into effect on November 1, 2019.

My Disappointing Experience with AMEX Business Platinum 35% Membership Rewards Point Rebate

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  2 months ago, I wrote First Class Flights Cheaper than Economy with AMEX Business Platinum 35% Membership Rewards Points Rebate.  In that post, I showed how I booked an Alaska Airlines first class flight using American Express Membership Rewards Points to trigger the 35% Membership Rewards Points rebate.  That flight was booked on May 30 for travel in mid October and cost 19,666 Membership Rewards Points.  According to the benefit terms, the rebate should appear in 6-10 weeks.  Based on the May 30 booking date, the 10 week mark was August 8.  I kept checking my Membership Rewards account ever few days in August, but no Membership Rewards Points ever posted.  On Friday, I decided to call the American Express Membership Rewards department to investigate the issue.  What ensued was not a very pleasant experience with the rep.

American Express Delta Platinum Credit Card Sign Up Bonus Posts Fast (70K SkyMiles + 10K MQMs)

Good afternoon everyone.  A few days ago, I wrote Unboxing American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Documents & Benefits.  In that post, I mentioned that the sign up bonus for the American Express Delta Platinum Credit Card was 70,000 Delta SkyMiles and 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) after spending $3,000 in 3 months.  I am happy to report that the sign up bonus posts really fast after you complete the minimum spending requirement.  After logging into my American Express online account, I found out that the 70,000 Delta SkyMiles posted to my Delta account (I had less than 5,000 Delta SkyMiles a week ago, now I have 74,564 Delta SkyMiles).

Unboxing American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Documents & Benefits

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  A few days ago, I wrote about my July App-O-Rama and my approval process for the American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card.  Since my application was not instantly approved, I called American Express.  I was told that I had too many credit cards with American Express and I needed to close an existing American Express credit card to open up a credit card slot.  I closed my American Express Hilton Honors Business Credit Card and transferred the credit limit over to my new American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card.  The American Express rep also offered to expedite the delivery of my new credit card.  Yes please! My new credit card arrived via UPS Next Day Air and here is the unboxing post that shows the card art, welcome documents, and the card benefits.  Here is the front and back of the American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card:
