I tend to agree with this: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/74834#comment-1246773

They likely figured they have signed up all the businesses they could over the past 5 years and that there's not much left. If they start losing merchants maybe we'll see a return next year.

If this were about abuse it would be easy as pie to limit this to primary cards only.

Did you even read what I wrote?
While your first line says you don't think it's due to abuse, the rest of your post clearly says otherwise. If it's not abuse why is it an embarrassment? Why the need for soul searching?

It's a tragedy of the commons.  Like overfishing and overhunting.  This is why we need rules and regulations and enforcement.  Like if you saw someone doing 99 AUs, there should have been a ddf police you could call who would come give him an FR.

It's an embarrassment to see pictures of our people bragging about how much they've abused a system circulating around the Internet.  CM can (but probably wont) comment on how it looks to an "outsider".  It's not good.  I don't believe our community is the cause for the change in SBS but I'm sure they saw the pictures and saw the concentration of abuse.  If that's not a cause for soul searching, I'm not sure what is...

What benefits would make it worthwhile for merchants other than having customers come in droves or lowering the fees year-round ?

AMEX customers spend more on average.

Yes, but Amex customers tend to also have visa and mastercard.  Albeit without 99 AUs.

It is clear from the get go how much Amex is willing to pay for sbs as registration has a limit. Not like they are eliminating sbs by zip code.

The merchants still not accepting amex are well aware of that.

Or they could have set a smaller limit or limited to 1 per primary or even 1 per SSN...

Who says they're savvy enough to know that the people spend twice as much on AMEX as MC/Visa.
