How to Remove Closed American Express Credit Cards from your Online Account

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  During my recent App-O-Rama, I applied for the new American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card.  Even though I didn’t get instantly approved, I received a call from American Express asking me if I wanted to close 2 existing American Express credit cards so that I could be approved for the new American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card.  Long story short, I closed my existing American Express Hilton Honors Ascend Credit Card and American Express SPG Business Credit Card in order to be approved for the new American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card.  The decision was pretty easy to make, considering both credit cards just had annual fees post and I didn’t want to keep those credit cards another year.

Fast forward to now and my closed American Express credit cards still show up in my online account.  In this post, I will show you how to remove a closed American Express credit or charge card from your online account.  This process will work for open credit / charge cards, personal and business cards, and authorized user cards.  The first thing you need to do is log into your American Express online account.

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday.  If you are stuck in the cold, you might be thinking about taking a vacation to a warm, sunny destination.  Maybe Palm Springs crossed your mind with their warm, year-round climate.  Not to mention, this is the second weekend of Coachella, which is a short drive away.  I just received a timeshare vacation package offer in the mail for the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Resort & Villas in Palm Springs.  They have several beautiful photos of the resort, but here are just 2 that stood out to me.  The timeshare vacation package includes 5 days / 4 nights in a 1 bedroom villa, 2 tickets on the Palm Springs aerial tramway, and a $100 gift card to Pacifica Restaurant, a nearby restaurant serving steak and local dishes.  The cost of the timeshare vacation package?  Just $389, but if you don’t know when you want to go, a $200 down payment is all that is required.  The timeshare vacation package is addressed to me and includes a unique preferred invitation number, but if you want to participate in this offer, you can try calling or emailing the contact info on the letter.
