Dont torture your self. All the banks are going through tough times. If there is no AF on Amex card then sock drawer the card and use other cards.

NO MORE BANKS TOUGH TIME because they got the stimulus money already. They got billions of $$$$ so they should be freeing up and open more doors for lending...

 

Consumers are going through tough time but BANKS are FREEBIES..

This is not entirely true. Banks don't even have the money to cover their losing bets - aka credit default swaps. As for Amex, I'm not sure what their exposure to CDS is, if any.
