Used the same amex card twice for an amex offer. Luckily they were able to cancel the transaction
Who cancelled? AMEX or the merchant?

Spent $15 at Staples with Visa Checkout. On an Amex card.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Asked my DW to apply for GE and use Amex Pt to get the credit. The last part escaped her and she used Citi DC. Instead of getting $100 back I'm getting  $2. :facepalm:

She just did it yesterday. I am going to see if I can cancel the app and get a refund, but I'm not hopeful.

Waited until two hours ago to place a large egift card order with Amazon. By midnight, they had not yet even requested an authorization on my Freedom card, so I cancelled the whole order rather than risk not getting my bonus UR.

First time in my life I didn't pay the minimum balance on time on a CC.  It was for WF which had a significant cash back award due which was forfeited...  :-(

ETA:  Will be going in-branch today to try to recover it and the late fee, but not hopeful.

Purchased a $200 e-gift card on Delta with two newly signed up Amex Plat cards late December to get the $200 credit on each only to find out in January after not having the credit post that you need to purchase 4 $50 e-gift cards to get the $200 credit.

Good luck!
Always sign up for auto pay.  You can still pay what you want when you want, but it will pay at least the minimum on the date due.

Ordered with regular cc on the gilt.com deal instead of Masterpass...paid shipping  >:(

Still a sweet deal.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
