That's not a logical decision they made, that's slipping something through the system. Big difference.
You are living in fantasy world if you think they don't know this is going on. I expect when this one blows up all accounts will be closed.

I don't think so. Every year more and more people start and ramp up.

How do you set up a poll?
ETA: This one says you're probably right, at least in terms of last year.

One thing is for sure, there ain't anyway to blame this on noobs. The so called "abusers", are the high rollers on DDF etc.

Disclaimer: I have no idea why it was canceled but you think I am going to pass up this opportunity to have some fun?
But it is not even Friday

If you look at this from Amex's perspective, they have absolutely no reason to give the credits this year. They have gotten over the last few years:

1) Massive amount of publicity
2) many small businesses to start accepting Amex
3) loads of people to sign-up for Amex CC
4) Seen as a caring corporation of the small businesses.( PR )

I therefore ask the question, why should they do it ????

Ps. Don't get me wrong I would love to have it...

Not so fast there. There's still all the year-round promos.
