AmEx A/A'ing Blue Cash Cards
« on: October 22, 2014, 02:44:23 PM »
Well, seems AmEx finally had enough.

A very large wave of closures hit this morning.

For all those left standing, godspeed.

ETA: Seems larger than I thought -- From post 3881: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/manufactured-spending/1535970-old-amex-blue-259.html

Even in light of the closures, I LOL'd when reading this:

Oh god, it's like laying blindfolded in a line waiting for the bullet in the head. I can hear the shots and they sound like they're getting closer.

Oh, this is not good.  This is really not good.  What am I going to do with my spare time without trips to CVS and Grocery stores for GCs?

Not sure why people wouldn't redeem them as soon as they were earned.

Not really helpful just sitting in your account.

It takes a while for them to be made available for redemption.

He's not talking about that.

He's talking about accrued, but not redeemed.

Not earned, but pending.
