This is why I love American Express

I got the BCE in December and the standard sign up bonus was $100 for spending $1000. I saw an offer for $150 on the BCE on creditcards.com . So I called into AMEX and asked if I was able to get the new bonus instead of the old one. They told me that they can not alter the bonus but they will credit my account for the $50 difference. Their customer service is awesome, glad i'm a card member.

That's classic.  The offer is $100 back on BCE and $150 back on BCP.  Good thing they didn't verify your claim!

Re: This is why I love American Express

American Express usually will not match an offer if a better one comes out after someone applies. Maybe you got a representative who did not know any better or they have changed their policy. I myself tried multiple times recently and was told no each time.
