American Express Complaint - Don't Bother With This Card
BRIGHTON, MICHIGAN -- I am a Costco member. They tried to get me to to open an American Express card. So one day I did. They said that the renewal charge will go on the account. I received the cards and never activated them. I thought that my Costco member ship was running out but I never received a statement from American Express. By now I have moved but I did have a forwarding address. I called American Express and told them I moved, gave them new address and then activated my card. Nothing was said to me. A month later I got a bill with 60.00 in services fees. I called and told them it was a problem. they waived all the fees and I paid my membership. I also noticed that my initial limit was 5000.00 and now it is 500.00. I thought it was not big deal as I don't need the card. Well my husband and I saw a pool table at Costco for 750.00. I wanted to use the American Express because I will get 3% back. I called them and they gave me a bad hassle about How I am a credit risk. What a joke...They would have to take a week and review then let me know the answer.
Well if you know how things go at Costco it probably won't be there in a week. At that point I closed my account. I will never use them again....
