Warning: Watch Out for American Express Transaction Reporting Glitch
Good evening everyone, I hope you are all having a good week so far. Are you looking forward to Labor Day Weekend? I know I am. I’m flying to Portland, Oregon this weekend with my family. I’m planning to hit up some local breweries (any recommendations?) and walk around the city. Anyone interested in meeting up sometime during the weekend for lunch/drinks? Let me know in the comments.
Anyway, back to the title of the post. I am not sure if this is technically a glitch or an anomaly or whatever it is called, but I thought it was strange so I figured it was worth sharing.
I am an authorized user on my friend’s SPG card (I’m such a good friend) and was helping him make some purchases while he is traveling outside the US. When I look at the credit card account online, I see 3 purchases and a payment for the current period (August 2 through today). I thought everything was good until my friend said that I owed him $500 for a purchase I made that I didn’t pay him back on. I was confused. I made approximately $2,000 in purchases and paid him back approximately $2,000. What is the problem?
