Re: Making multiple payments causes 7 day hold

I pretty much shoot them payment soon as a charge posts and haven't had any issues. 

 

FWIW, payments don't post very quickly to my USAA Amex.

[ Edited ]

One of the nice things I like about AmEx is, when I make a payment on one of my revolvers with them online, they credit it to your account immediately,

 

My CL on my BCP is 12400, and if I had charged 2000, my avail credit would be 10400, and when I make the 2000 payment online and go back to the Accounts page, it will instantly show my avail credit of 12,400 5 seconds after making the payment. I just like that, it's like a good faith gesture on AmEx's part.

 

My PayPal SC card is the same way, as soon as I hit the submit payment tab, I can check my spending power and it is right back at the full CL.

 

All the rest of my CC's pretty much take 24-48 hours to post the payment to my acct and restore the full CL.

I love that feature. I make a payment in full and my BCE shows $4000 immediately. Heck they even let me make a payment on pending items.

Thats pretty awesome!! Well i'm sure they do that in part because most know not to burn AMEX.

Re: Making multiple payments causes 7 day hold

I dont think that initially it was like that, AMEX tends to learn your habits and let you loose.

Re: Making multiple payments causes 7 day hold

In my experience, different credit card companies have different policies here.

 

I know that with HSBC / Orchard, if you make more than one payment within seven days, it'll trigger a hold on funds.  If you make payments exactly seven days apart, there's no hold.

When they do that, call this number 1-800-707-0489 (Sr. Acct. Escalations) give them the bizness about it and they'll release it!
