Re: Amex financial review - help

How does AMEX know what you purchased at CVS?? Do they call CVS to get a copy of the receipt? It would seem to me that the only thing they would be able to see is the transaction amount, date, time.

Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?

That's easy.  Most major retailers post what you purchased directly to the credit card company in the transaction description and match that to a specific product category.  The data they collect is invaluable...it's used from everything like determining customer cash back and points rewards to larger analytics like broad purchasing trends that are bought by marketers and companies who need to measure the markets.  And the labor department uses it to determine leading economic indicators...and other countries do the same thing.
