Is it really from Amex or someone's clever way to get at your Amex account?

Buyer beware

In October, the Justice Department sued Visa, Mastercard and American Express over “anti-competitive practices” related to these fees because their merchant agreements barred retailers from giving you a discount if you chose a payment method that was cheaper for the store. Visa and MasterCard settled the suit, eliminating that clause from their contracts. American Express was also the only company that failed to settle. Some experts assumed that merchants would stop accepting American Express cards as a result. This may be the company’s clever attempt to counteract that.

That story is a little too cynical. I took AMEX up on this when it was offered a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was a great way to stimulate business for "small" locally owned shops. I bought my spouse a dress at a local shop and got the credit within a couple of days. Its not a scam.

Not quite a scam, but once it hits the limit of maximum users, it shouldn't allow you to register. I, too, bought at a locally owned store because of this program ... but I received no credit.

My mom and I signed up. What we haven't been able to find is a small business that utilizes Amex. Apparently Amex is more expensive so a lot of small businesses don't accept the card. Now if Amex provided a list by zip code...

yeah, Pam, I had the same issue. First store I went to didn't accept it; the second one did [this time I asked before shopping] and I have received the $25 credit to this month's account.
