Keep us posted. If it was just a technical glitch for a few minutes while they were updating their systems that you managed to take advantage of, you should expect to find your cash back balance in the negative.
Still in the positive...

Just chatted with an Amex rep, wanted to convert my Blue Cash into the Everyday card, he told me that as of now it's not an option but they're in process of making it an option.

Just got the Blue Cash Everyday. Can someone explain to me how the points on it work? Can the bonus/purchase points be used with MR?
Thanks

It's cash back, not MR

So it's not transferable. Oh well. I thought it was like the Freedom, which is also marketed as cash-back, but with the right cards, is transferable.

Got this card in December. Maxxed out 6k supermarket spend in December. Bill closed on Jan. 8. Got my first reward dollars on Feb 6 statement. Get the March 6 bill and my supermarket spend is showing as 1%. Anyone else have this? Chatted with Amex rep who said it was definitely wrong. I should still be getting 6% for 2015 spend.

I had card and procrastinated until Dec. to finish off spend. My Dec. charges came through on Jan. statement and it seems that they are counting for this year... Let me know if you get anywhere, but my plan was to spend first and then ask them...

Per chat they said they would reset me to 6%. Not counting those chickens yet. Like you,  spend first ask later.

IINM 99 is the max. But that might be asking for an f/r

Thanks. I was wondering since it's only allowing me to do 4 at a time as opposed to the Everyday card which can do 5. It also was giving some kind of error when trying to add cards a second time; although now it's working.

Seems different than this card, but IIRC, the OBC only allows three AU's.
