American Express website down?

Postby Nichtberger » Mon Feb 14, 2011 2:03 pm

Why is the American Express website down? I tried filling out application and it keeps given me an error page, regardless of the application I click. This cannot be a planned outage at this time of day?

It's working fine for me. If I wanted to I could submit an app for a Blue Cash card right now.

The American Express website is working for me now too, the outage must have been fixed.

What is it with all the bank websites crashing lately? This happened with accessing my Chase account last year and my Discover a few days ago. How do banks of this size not manage their websites?

These things happen from time to time. I'm a website designer and a hosting company I used in the past had an outage that involved about 35% of their servers because someone accidentally unplugged a network switch in California. It's stupid, but it happens.

There's not a website on the planet that can maintain 100% uptime, not even NASDAQ. The fact that you couldn't get to Chase once last year kind of proves the point; they're pretty reliable with the occasional hiccup.
