I used my AMEX charge card recently for a downpayment on a vehicle I was purchasing. Amex has an auto purchase program that allows you to use the card for downpayment purposes, AND you get the points!
I called to check if what I was charging would go through, and was told that I was trying to charge $ 1000 more than I was authorized. I was really surprised because it was a lot smaller than I expected. I was wondering what has been other people’s experience in using their AMEX charge…especially after recently recieving it.
