Purchase on AMEX card but the charges are not posted
« on: April 14, 2013, 09:19:14 PM »
I bought some stuffs at cowboom.com on my AMEX Delta Gold card last month. The charges (a total of ~$550) were showed up as pending charges but after 10 days, they were finally fell off without posting to "recent charge" category. My question is: Is this free money? Or eventually, AMEX (or cowboom) will find this mistake and correct it?

Is it still taken from your available balance?
Mistakes do happen!

No, it's not taken from the available balance. It's been nearly 3 weeks now.

Seems like something is off on Amex's side of things. One would think they audit their records every so often and would find this. Keep fingers crossed that they may not say anything.

Personally I think cowboom made some mistakes at their ends. Other purchases made around the same time from other sites were posted as normal. Just 3 charges from cowboom were disappeared.

Possibly. Either way, fingers crossed.

Just checked my Chase Hyatt, Made 3 payments for LH (baggage) for $100, each came up as pending, but only one posted.

Also Missing is a SQ charge which posted (and SQ refunded it a few days later), but its just missing, no refund showed.
