If they wanted BGs they wouldn't have added quantity limits on most products sold
so u r saying u think amex is shutting down accounts where they believe BG's are being used for spending ?

No. I'm saying it's funny that people don't realize that something like that can be a trigger.

I don't buy it.

That he used his card a lot on Amazon (even for BGs) isn't the cause of his shutdown, or even a trigger, as we'd have hundreds if not thousands of DPs to support it.

They probably have to do that as part of their agreements with the manufacturers.

They could easily cancel orders the way best buy and b&h do.

Perhaps, but surely it's only a matter of time before the RATs catch on.

I think it's more likely Amazon shuts it down. I can't believe they're looking the other way for so long.

Based on the conversation, Amex Amazon card.

Looks like you didn't follow the conversion closely.

No one to talk to to get it reinstated, waste of time. maybe waiting some time, (dont know how long tho) or I read about opining an AU with your SSN could help you in the future when applying again.

the buying groups wouldnt be in business if this was the trigger

With the value of skypessos, an amazon credit might have more value ;D
