Amex Platinum – Customer service via chat
1st December 2022 at 18:01S879
How have people found CS via chat in recent times? I am finding my spend offers don’t trigger and they keep asking me to wait for like 90 days. Then added a supplementary 1.5 months ago but no sign of 5k MR points. Took half an hour on chat for these two to be told I need to wait for up to 150 days! 5 months? I think they just assume that anyone who pays almost £600 for a card would not chase up the missing 5k points and £50 Harvey Nichols. I said I could read T&Cs but the point of contacting via chat is that that could easily see my transaction and my supplementary and sort out the failure in THEIR automated system. Answer was a no so I doubt I’d be keeping it for too long. I would even say their offers are misleading as in the past year I’ve had to chase up many times on other Amex cards too, often just giving up. Times really are hard for them it seems.1st December 2022 at 21:34pointsfan
It feels like the customer service is worse now than it was 12 months ago. I used to think it was excellent, not so much anymore.1st December 2022 at 21:59Aston100
The overseas agents are dreadful.
I try to avoid the web chat and instead phone and ask to be put through to the Brighton team (who are generally excellent).2nd December 2022 at 08:16Carlos
The T&C mention how long you need to wait before the points will be added and also for the HN credit2nd December 2022 at 09:44alig4th
From memory the standard T&C say something like “normally posted in 5 days but in RARE circumstances can take up to 90/150 days”.
Seems like the rare circumstances are becoming a lot less rare based on personal experience and some of the threads here2nd December 2022 at 10:05NorthernLass
The HN credit posted to my gold card 2 days after spending the £250. It was odd, though, it didn’t show on my home page but I eventually found it in my list of transactions, then a few days later it appeared in the “savings” section.
