Read an article this morning about the Miami heat winning the championship and having their 100k bill comped by the bar they went to. Granted when you read on and see they were 'charged' 850 for a bottle of Dom, retail 150 or so you can quickly deduce that the 100k was inflated for sensationalization. However, a note in the article talked about how when Mark Cubans team won the championship a few years ago his Black Amex was denied and he had to call into AMEX and say the following. " This is Mark Cuban. We just won the championship. Can I please spend some money". His charges were then authorized. See it can't happy to anyone and you thought your timing was bad. Well played amex, well played
