Upon closer inspection the notification is for a gift I had sent to my mom in December of 2015.

AMEX offer to upgrade BCE to BCP. $2000 spent equals $250 statement credit. Should cover the annual fee. Going to pay the house taxes with it, then PC back to BCE. Too many of my local grocery stores don't take AMEX. Kinda of a shame, as I wouldn't mind paying the AF if I could use it all the time.

Even if they accepted Amex, only some supermarkets are included not all grocery stores. Edited by credit_help

Right, a lot of cheap/outlet groceries stores code as "discount stores" or something other than "grocery". Had more than a few stores not code the way you might think. The BCP card only really makes sense if your primary grocery store accepts it and codes properly, otherwise the $95 isn't worth it.

My shopping includes these type of stores as well. Even the major supermarket chain did not code as supermarket for me.

What supermarket, and what did it code as? The only major store in my area that accepts and codes as "grocery" with AMEX is Smart and Final, which isn't my primary grocery.

It’s “Pick ‘n Save”. The parent company operates few other supermarkets too.

It codes as “Merchandise & Supplies - Groceries” just like a few smaller grocery stores.

Pick n' Save LOL this is not a supermarket sounding name. If it doesn't look like Publix or Kroger it's something else.Can't blame Amex. Lol

Kind of like Save-A-lot. Lol. All their stores are located in sub optimal hoods.

It's owned by

Kroger

. See the Kroger family at the bottom of the page. Not all states have Kroger or Publix. Kroger uses the name in only a few states.

No. It's a regional supermarket chain that does not have any locations outside of WI. It's similar to Kroger.

      I have no idea if this will be of assistance to anyone.  It's full of links that are accessible.
       
      Happy reading.

      Any explanation would be great. I thought to list a series of events would be better than some long paragraph. I have pics and proof for all events below. 
       
      Mid May: Ordered Vehicle (checked credit score showing 730 at the time)

      June 7: Toyota Financial Services received payment for old lease

      June 12: TFS closed account
       
      June 30: TFS reported to the credit bureau account closed on June 12

      Friday July 9: Credit was pulled by dealer (first of knowing of outstanding balance on a said closed account)Was able to get bumped to a Tier 2. (Nothing was reported nor sent to me that I had an outstanding balance)
       
      Monday July 12: called Transunion because their score was what was pulled that hurt the deal. Transunion said that they show nothing of delinquency on my report AND show no history of it being removed nor it ever being on there in the first place.
       
      Evening July 12: called Experian because no other apps were showing a tier 3 credit score. They also said they had no history of it ever being on my report. (Talked to about five differnent people) They put me on a callback list to speak to a supervisor. Associate had said supervisor was in a meeting and would call back.
       
      July 13: Called Experian again to figure what happened. Received notifications that my credit score had increased 66 points and delinquency was removed notifications on Experian app. (No certainty that it was removed from report because they said there’s nothing bad on my report. I guess I take their word for it??)
       
      Evening July 13: received a notifications from credit apps that Toyota Motor Credit has reported positive activity on a outstanding loan balance. Loan paid.
       
      July 14: Called TFS to request document to cross reference dates.
       
      July 16: Called TFS to speak to Toyota Motor Credit. Turns out there’s no one to speak to in that department. It’s the same as calling TFS. Called Experian again to ask why they are just now reflecting on my credit that I had an outstanding balance that was just closed on July 13 not what TFS sent which states that it was closed in June 12. Experian had told me that the account was closed in June but when I explained to them that’s not what I’m seeing in my emails and notifications, they became combative and hung up on me. No one can tell me how and why on July 9, a inaccurate mistake cost me money and no one can send me my credit report to verify that there’s no delinquency. TFS agree that someone dropped the ball (but not them) and is willing to send any and all reports they have on my accounts. All credit bureaus has yet to send me to any documentation of removal of alleged delinquency and I will never know what happen on July 9th that cost me money. I’m paying more than I should and I could’ve been out of $1k(nonrefundable deposit to order vehicle) because I will not sign a tier 3 deal. Who knows how long I would’ve been without a car in this market if that were true.

      Hello,
       
      Does anyone know either by experience or with a good degree of certainty if American Express (AMEX) will decline card membership if you have ever filed bankruptcy against them? I have read somewhere that they keep a permanent “barred from membership list”.
       
      Is this right, no. However, as you probably know a financial institution may choose to do business with whomever they choose (a rather broad definition). I have read that even if an American Express account has been fully-discharged by a successfully complete bankruptcy case, they will no longer choose to do business with you.
       
      The reason I am asking is twenty years ago, I listed them as a creditor in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I would like to apply for membership in the future when my current FICO is a bit stronger. However, I do not want to burn a hard-inquiry only for it to be declined.
       
      I apologize if I am not posting in the correct area. Thank you.

      So- my credit file has not significantly changed in a long time (and I qualified for long-term zero% auto loan back in April).
       
      I do carry significant balances on my credit cards, but always pay (auto-pay) significantly more than minimum payments. 
       
      but something triggered an odd cascade in the last few weeks. 
       
      I got notice one of my Synchrony accounts had suddenly had the credit limit dramatically reduced. I contacted them and they said they periodically check credit report and make changes. The letter they sent indicated high balances to limit on cards. 
       
      a day later ai get another letter from Synchrony- for a second account with them was having the limit reduced...
       
      we all know this impacts your credit score, as it messes up your utilization %.
       
      today, I got notice from a different bank- that, due to higher credit utilization rates, they dramatically reduced my limit in that card - 
       
      Which of course now even further rips my credit score...
      And this afternoon, I get notice from Synchrony that my Automotive account (that has never had particularly high balance can limit) was having a limit reduction down to the current balance!
       
      What’s going on?  I have NEVER been late, never payed just the minimum payments on any accounts... 
       
      Is there some massive banking “surprise” on the horizon?
       
      I did recently put a credit freeze on all 3 bureaus due to someone filing for unemployment with my name/SS# and I filed a police report on that. 
       
      I have paid credit monitoring service- and there is nothing new or odd on my CR...
       
      So what’s going on?
