有人最近用交房租完成过Amex开卡吗

4月1日交了一笔1900+的房租,2.95%的手续费。一下子完成了surpass的开卡任务。这笔交易已经post,显示的类别是business service-other service,然后也给了hilton的3x积分。今天找客服聊了一下,想确认一下已经完成了开卡任务。第一个客服跟我说这笔交易看起来是符合要求的,然后就给我了一个不符合要求交易种类的list:

American Express membership fees / program fees, annual membership fees, Enrollment based Card Member services fees
PASS Card from American Express funds reload
Balance transfers

Person to person payments (for example, PayPal, BidPay, HSBC Yahoo PayDirect, etc.)

Interest / Interest charges (including credit limit interest charges)
Serve Card funds reload
Late payment fees / Returned payment fees
Sign and Travel interest charges
Money orders
Transactions related to collision damage waiver claims
Optima checks
Wire transfers

这里面大部分是各种fee,interest或者现金等价物,这个能理解,但居然包括了房租和保险(交车险也不算了?)。所以一下子心里就更没底了。于是等了一会又找了另一个客服,这次直接问还差多少钱完成开卡任务,她说还差1900+(这卡确实没怎么花,一开始就是想用房租一下解决掉)。我说不对啊,我刚花了小2000,也post了。于是她问我你这个business service用的是什么service,我就没敢说实话,只说了是apartment maintenance。然后她就回我说不用担心,现在他们那边还是unbilled,到出账单应该就能看到了。
虽然这么说,但总之还是有点担心,毕竟按照规定rent是不算的。不过这个规定也确实没道理,交了3%的手续费,大部分不也是给商家要上供给amex么?这个跟现金等价物完全是两码事。

pay tax算开卡奖励啊,刚试过

pay tax类别显示啥呀?以及,是post完就给算上了还是等到出statement才看到?

一直用plastiq 虽然贵但至少稳定 闷声发财好了别问客服

我这儿没法用plastiq,就是公寓管理方自己的网站,输入卡号金额自动换算手续费

这不就是正常消费吗 有什么可问的。。

我也觉得是正常消费,但是hilton surpass页面进去右边不是有个消费满15,000获得一个fn的进度条吗,我是看到这笔消费post以后那个进度条没变,心里就有点犯嘀咕……

周一晚上看看 我前两天交了State Farm的保险都算正常消费

多等几天啊 不可能你刷完系统马上就刷新的啊

我三月份的时候交了一年的车险(七百多刀),记录上直接写的insurance,也算了正常消费。

post完了就算上了
other - government services

卧槽,原来交税是不算的?

果然有了,赞!

我刚刚用过plastiq房租 可以给的
