Maybe when you checked it, it was literally in the process of updating, and the payment reflected in one place but not the other?

This also happened to me. I thought I got auto-luv after 2 months. Turns out, they just added my payment to my credit limit and gave me that as available credit. After 1 day, it reported 0 balance 1K available credit....I was sad. They got my hopes up.

Ive hit the luv button a few times with this card and have had no luck. My experian score dropped after I got the card and has stayed absolutely stagnant while all my other ones are always moving around, hell it used to be the most active and now it never changes why my equifax has been moving up fast. All my balances are decreasing on my loans yet my score never moves, what gives. And amex wont give me any love.
Edit: Just pulled my CR from here and my dam EX fico is 678 now, thats 20 points higher than when they gave me the dam card, what gives. Amex is startin to piss me off. My fiance got a dam 4k limit with a 675 and I cant even get a limit raise with 6 months of perfect payment history.
