[Updated With More Changes] Major Changes Are Coming For American Express Benefits! Master Chart Of Whatís Being Added And Removed - https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/major-changes-coming-american-express-benefits-master-chart-whats-added-removed/


$300 per item, 1K per card per year. So if you have an SPG card and a PRG card you'll only have 2k of total RP coverage, regardless of how many AUs you have on each card.

If you are unsure if an item qualifies for RP, then instead of asking for opinions here (slightly better than asking medical advice on facebook mind you), PUTPAC and ask the RP reps. You don't need to give your name or card info, just say you have an item or you will be buying an item and the store has a crappy return policy and want to make sure if there is a problem you can return it.


Direct number: 1800-225-3750

or
Return Protection:  www.americanexpress.com/return This is for when, in the first 3 months, the original seller won't accept a return, and the product is still in new condition.
Purchase Protection:  www.americanexpress.com/purchase This is for when, in the first 3 months, a purchase is lost, stolen, or broken.
Extended Warranty: www.americanexpress.com/warranty This covers only what the original warranty covers and extends it for up to 1 year.

Amex can approve RP claims even after the card is closed/cancelled, though YMMV.

ok guys so what happened to me is my claim got denied stating that my card doesn't have return protection.
So what I did was I uploaded to my return protection page my receipt and attached a letter stating that the purchase was made on dec 31st and at that time my card did have return protection.
2 days later I was refunded.
[This happened to my friend too seems like the return protection reps are not that trained they just know that the card doesnt have now.
So if claim is submitted it gets denied eventhow some of them shouldn't. ]
Just got credited too

Not that it's super relevant to most here, but I just got credited for a return protection claim on an item purchased in Canada. I think the t&c's exclude purchases made outside of the US, but I figured it was worth a try.

Made the claim for the USD amount charged to the card but used the receipt with the CAD equivalent and they still approved it.

I just got denied a claim for teeth aligners from Smile Direct Club.

I complained that they were ruining my teeth.

I guess they donít cover physical distress.

Should I have complained about them being a low quality product instead?

Anyone had success with stuff like that?

Are they not customized for each customer? They don't cover custom orders AFAIK.

This seems to be more like a claim for a dispute. Not return protection

Yup, customized orders are not technically covered.

and don't items have to be  brand new and unused?

Yes as well

Anyone having issues with return protection (on a card which lost this benefit) for items purchased in December? I filed a claim a week ago and usually get refunded in 2 days or so, however so far I haven't heard a/t from Amex.
Finally got my refund...so I'm guessing it's all just taking a lot more time than previously

Anyone ever asked to take pics of item?
Please elaborate. I wonder why they asked... and if it means they are trying to hassle me.
Thanks

Maybe extended warranty? I had them cover a cracked laptop screen because it was out of the manufacturer's warranty. I had to send a pic.

Does anyone have experience using return protection with the Wells Fargo Propel (no annual fee)? The T&C are pretty much the same as what Amex in-house cards have with the same exclusions and limits (300/1k) but the protection is through someone else: Warrantech, an AmTrust Financial Company.
