Annual Spending

Postby AMEXAT19 » Mon Dec 09, 2013 8:15 pm

Now that the year is coming to an end, what was your spending for this year? This question stems from as I was contemplating with the respresentative as to whether I should keep my PRG or downgrade back to the Green. She advised me that one of the benefits was you receive 15,000 points when you spend $30,000 in one year. She then told me I had spent roughly $38,900, and recommended it keep the card due to my spending, which I think I will do. My question is how much have other members spent this year?

If that is personal and not business, kudos to you for being able to swing that. I hope one day to reach your level of spending and success

Man. I am for sure not the stuff ideal Amex customers are made of. I have no idea I don't bother keeping track. I could check the statements and do the math, but a good guess is a few thousand dollars across all of them.

And I've cut off all spending on Amex until they resolve what is going on with the sign up bonus I was told I was supposed to get, or I determine they just are going to welsh on it. Doesn't sit right with me to tell me something and then not follow through. But I'm sure they won't miss my puny spend anyway so no biggie.

But reading these I can see I'm far from the person Amex targets as a customer.
