FYI Amex Credit Secure...

...includes Lost Wallet Protection, an otherwise $40 service/year. An unexpected perk I learned about calling in today.

Sounds like a good service - how does it work ?  Do they automatically notify your creditors on your behalf if your CCs are lost/compromised ?

If you lose your wallet or it gets stolen, you call them and they take care of canceling all your accounts and getting new cards out to you, even your non-Amex cards. Same with your passport and driver's license, they'll get replacements for you too. You register your stuff with them which takes a couple minutes online.

 

I signed up for Credit Secure so that I could review all 3 of my reports in one place (I've never done this before believe it or not). I also wanted to make sure my recently opened/closed accounts report correctly in the next month or two and then cancel the service. I may keep the Lost Wallet Protection though.

Sounds helpful, and if they can really get a new passport or DL for you ( instead of just telling you who to call, etc... ) then that is a great service.

Yeah !   Totally worth it if it would save you from having to stand in line at the DMV.  Or passport office.....

Re: FYI Amex Credit Secure...

Just an update...this is apparently no longer the case.  CreditSecure still includes ID Theft Insurance but does not have Lost Wallet Protector.

 

Fine by me as I have LWP with the Go Pack on my Zync, but something to bear in mind if you were hoping to get access to LWP this way.

Starting: EQ 622 (myFICO 7/7/12), EX 696 (TU FAKO 8/14/12), TU 621 (CK TransRisk 7/24/12)
Current: EQ 670 (myFICO 9/8/14), EX 694 (Prosper 7/17/14) , TU 693 (WalMart 9/2/14) Goal: 700+ x3
My Wallet: Amex BCP $30k, Chase CSP VS $12.2k, Amex Zync NPSL (> 10k), C1 Venture VS $5k, Amex SPG $4.5k, Walmart (Store) $2.5k, Barclaycard Apple V $2k, Chase Freedom V $1100, BoA Cash Rewards V $500, Best Buy Rewards MC $500
My Loans: Prosper $25k/36mo
My Business: Chase Ink VS $5k

Re: FYI Amex Credit Secure...

Could that be the case for those who recently signed up for Credit Secure? I have been a member for a while, and just checked my account. Lost Wallet Protection shows up under the My Benefits section. It allows me to add or edit credit cards or documents in my profile.

I was unaware of this benefit until recently.
