Amex BCP AF Credit

Anyone else get a credit for the $75 acct fee on their BCP yesterday? Just logged into my acct & saw that they issued a $75 acct fee credit to my account. Didn't receive an email about it or anything. Just wondering if it's an error on Amex's part. Only other thing I can think of is that they issued the credit as a courtesy b/c my $25 small biz sat credit wasn't issued automatically & I had to call in to request it. The CSR I spoke with apologized & said she was going to send a msg to the marketing team & the interactive team. Amex is usually stingy with things like this so I would be surprised if that's why they ussued the $75 credit. Any ideas?

After reading your post I logged into my BCP account and found the same thing...No idea of how or why. Perhaps a Christmas gift! :smileyvery-happy:

Just checked my accounts and nothing for me.  They must have seen the $1000s I made in Sync deals and figured I have gotten enough free Amex cash lol.  BTW congrats you two.

Re: Amex BCP AF Credit

I got a $75 credit too! I didn't even pay the full $75 in 2012 since I PCed from BCE to BCP.

 

I was curious and I went to look at the BCP site, and it says there is no longer an annual fee!

Maybe try clearing your cache? Or maybe they just updated their website and it hasn't propigated to all their servers yet.

Can you get a screenshot of this?

 

It seems odd that Amex would do this, unless they were trying to axe the 6% on groceries and restructure the card. This would seem like a reasonable move on Amex's part, maybe they could offer a cash back card for more "preferred" spending, like dining/entertainment (which with travel, I think, is what most "normal" people think of when they think "Amex"). Obviously, without restructuring, they would be offering a 6% and 3% card at the same price.

 

When people started seeing the Discover It website, not everyone everywhere was able to see it at once, so it'd be good if you could get an image to confirm what you're seeing.
