Pay Over Time--AMEX Platinum

Just an observation; I was perusing my October statement and there was a section about pay over time terms and it says my limit was $35,000. Sort of like WOW.

Re: Pay Over Time--AMEX Platinum

It is sort of the standard limit AFAIK

 

And pay over time needs to be activated, you do not have it automatically

I wasn't aware of a limit especially a universal one. Just a section I noticed and thought it was interesting. I'm pretty sure mine is/was activated though.

Hey MrShush!

I think that the 35K limit is standard unless approved at activation/invite it states differently.  My limits are 35K on both my charge cards with Amex.  My brother's was activated with 18K.  Not everyone is offered this "perk" and it's based on internal score and ability to pay.  


Starting Score: 642

Roger! That makes sense. Base upon internal criteria if fluctuates--like everything else with them.

Mine is 35k as well and is only applied to purchases $100.00 or more. Im thinking about using the pay over time feature real soon.

Re: Pay Over Time--AMEX Platinum

Very good question. I believe its 18% on mine but may be wrong. I personally dont have a concern about the interest considering it will only be spreaded out 1-3 months at most.

Re: Pay Over Time--AMEX Platinum

Awhile back there was a MR bonus of 5,000 points if you activated the Pay Over Time feature.  I did so and got the 5,000 bonus points.  But I believe there have been offers of 10,000 bonus points as well.  My APR for pay over time is 15.24%. I have only used this feature once (back when it was called Sign & Travel) to purchase some last minute airline tickets.
