AMEX BCE Reward Dollars

I just got my first statement today and my account still shows that I have $0.00 reward dollars. I did put quite a few charges on the card this past month. Is it normal for the rewards to be delayed in showing up every month or do you think this is just because my account is still so new? Most of my other reward CCs like IT and Freedom show my cash back on the actual statement which is nice. I didn't see anything having to do with cash back on my BCE statement.

Re: AMEX BCE Reward Dollars

Unfortunately Amex is slow with updating rewards. Reading on this board an others is takes them 1-2 billing cycles for rewards to post.

Heck, they just recently were able to update the system/process to speed up decisions regarding Costco Amex applications. It was taking then up to 2 weeks to verify membership.

Hopefully at some point they'll work on that and get figured out.

Re: AMEX BCE Reward Dollars

Amex takes their time with rewards, at least from my experience with the BCE. After I hit my required spend for the $100 bonus, it took one extra statement before I was awarded the credit, though none of the actual spending I did has been awarded yet. I've heard it can be as much as 3 months to get rewards.

 

Edit: I have heard that if you REALLY need the points it's possible to call Amex and request that they post them, but it's probably one of those YMMV things.

As soon as the last charge to clear $1000 posted, Amex immediately added my $100 to my account from the sign up bonus. I still haven't had rewards from purchases to post yet but I think my second statement closed yesterday or today (I haven't got the email yet).
