Application of Payments on Account
The AMEX app and the AMEX web site are easy to use, quick, easily accessible and promptly and accurately reflect all purchase activity. Very worthwhile. Which makes it particularly exasperating when payments are not applied to the account promptly. I make payments via automated debit to my bank account, either scheduled via AutoPay or on a one-off basis. The payments are invariably charged to my bank account well before they are credited to my AMEX account. At the end of the billing cycle, I sometimes (alternate months) like the account balance reported to the credit reporting agencies to be zero. When there have been charges to the account, and I pay on the last or second last day of the cycle, the payment does not get reflected sometimes for 2 days, which leaves an account balance over the end of the billing cycle. That really annoys me. And it is quite odd, since many times charges are applied to the account before I even get to the car after leaving the store.
Maybe you can fix this - it’s ridiculous.
Absolutely horrible app when it comes to rewards
So technology should make our lives easier, but American express has found a way to make it worse. I redeemed points for gift cards through the app, but trying to use them is just utterly ridiculous. First, you can’t even get to the cards without providing information that is on your AMEX card itself. So even though you have securely logged in to the app, you still have to do more. So if you’re not carrying your AMEX card with you, you can’t use the gift card. Navigating to the cards takes forever. I’m sure everyone is familiar with the phrase “it isn’t rocket science.” But apparently this is! Whether used or not the cards stay in my view, so I have no idea which ones I have used. And to determine the balance, American Express sends you to the vendor’s website, which is not at all helpful. That site asks you for the gift card number and PIN, so you have to go back to the American Express app, write these numbers down, then go back to the vendor site again. Now think of doing all of this while you’re standing at the checkout line at Home Depot with people waiting in line behind you for you to get this done! And forget trying to resolve this in the app through chat. Chat is just another word for we’re not going to listen to you but instead will send you links to FAQ sites. This has got to be one of the worst customer service experiences I’ve had with an app and the corresponding credit card company.
Rewards redemption is laborious
I am a customer of Amex since 2005 (could be a year earlier or later). Those days, Amex was the cool card that broke boundaries when compared to the cards of its time. Very attractive then.
Today, especially after the Costco fallout (which I assumed was a match made in heaven), I never left either Costco or Amex as a faithful customer. Costco more or less has retained its charming business practices to keep us motivated. Amex on the other hand has been slipping really bad. The worst experience I face now is redemption of the reward dollars to my credit card account. Multiple days chatting with their online staff who takes as much as 5 minutes to reply back to you (try keeping yourself motivated to chat and hold your phone from locking your Amex app out), I am still not able to get the money transferred within their system from the rewards bucket to the credit card bucket.
With banks like CitiBank and CaptialOne with their one press transfer and customer services, what happened to Amex?
