Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Is there a way to just read a specific posters posts in a thread?
In tapa you could, but it will only show posts that were replied to.

Just need CC?
IINM they have access to the Amex system and can let you in even if you don't have the card with you. I once tried with a card that had been cancelled that day and they were able to tell me what my last transaction on the card was.

Correct. Which is why I posted this last week in the tapa thread.

Is there a way to search a username in a certain thread? As of now I can only find a post that was quoted

If its pending today will probably post today or tomorrow but I guess depends on vendor.
But no Amex will not close your statment earlier

No
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

What does add to buddy list mean?
When I click on someone's profile there's a option "add to buddy list"
