Re: AMEX and a dead horse

Typically in the past, they didn't update until 4 weeks after the statement drops, or in other words, just a couple of days before the next statement is expected to appear. Smiley Tongue

 

They started changing some of their cards for some people to updating as soon as the account posts, but this definitely isn't happening for everyone. And a delay is more common when it's a new account, I think.

 

Hang in there...

Re: AMEX and a dead horse

For me, Amex reports the same day as my payment is due, so 25 days after the statement cuts. (So, about the 3.5 weeks that someone mentioned earlier).

You know, that's probably the timing that they use; hadn't thought of it that way.

 

Now, if they were reporting the remaining balance due as of the due date, that would be great. But they're still reporting the balance on the earlier statement, even if it has since been paid off. Or at least, that has been my experience.
