    Default American Express customer service number on back of card?

    What is the American Express customer service number found on the back of the card? My card is missing and the American Express website doesn't list the customer support number and instead says to "Call the American Express phone number on the back of your card." Aren't they geniuses. Didn't it occur to them that is the reason people would be going to the website for it in the first place??? I have the Gold card by the way.

    Default Ironic...

    I have the Optima Platinum AmEx card. Needed to call them from London's Heathrow last month since my charge for a British Airways ticket did not go through. When I pulled out my card and called collect, the customer service number on the back of my card was not valid. Needless to say, I was not happy at all as I had to use a backup card to make my purchase on BA.

    If a phone number is listed on the back of my card, I expect it to work. I called AmEx on my return to the USA and they had no explanation as to why the number did not work. They instead gave me another number.

    Did you call the regular customer service number on the back of the card? American Express cards have two phone numbers on the back, one is an 800 number and one is for collect international calls. It could have been that you dialed the 800 number accidentally as a collect call and that is why it didn't go through.
