Just got this from Amex:

"We are contacting you to be sure you do not have any surprises when you try to use your card. We wanted to let you know we have had to make the decision to close your account listed above."

All my cards were shut down. 3 personal and 3 business cards.

Called them and submitted a request for Reinstatement. My biggest woe right now is not being able to access my 300,000+ MR points which I was hoping to transfer to BA at a 40% bonus. :(

Chance of reinstatement?
What did you do wrong?

Only thing I can think of is that I carried a large balance on one of the business cards.

If a large balance on business cards was it then most of us would be shut down.

You should be able to transfer out by calling.

Unless if they forfeited the points too.
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Call MR department, if frontline rep can't access your MR account, ask for a supervisor.

I got a letter from amex that they are closing the pay over time feature on my biz plat account due to unusually high balances etc.
Anyone else got such a letter? Should I be nervous abt fr?

Don't be nervous a FR, embrace it. Once you pass go nuts on the card.

Still in that situation with my old business old card. Oh, and they had the nerve to give my personal platinum card a 4K limit. Oh and for my BBP, I'm not really able to go above the 3K credit limit (despite the card being sold as having the ability to go way beyond limit, like double the CL).

Any chance of getting cards at a later date after this email?


"We want to let you know that after a recent review of your American Express® account(s), we have cancelled the accounts referenced above because one or more of these accounts, or other accounts to which these accounts are linked, have been identified as not being used for the intended purpose."

 Wasn't MS'ing, just a lot of churning.
and 3 days later I get 70k DL in my account! (hit threshold the day of closure)

This just happened to my wife. She doesn't do MS and only used her cards for UberEats and going to Shake Shack. Makes no sense. Think she has a shot at getting re-instated?

Closed without going through FR first?
