American Express Sending Out Statement Credits of Various Amounts and No One Knows Why (Uber?)
Update 9/17/19: Some people have received mailers saying that this credit was because Uber updated the app making it more difficult to use the credit offered on the Platinum card. Not entirely sure that is the same as this, as I think some people received credits on non Platinum cards and we had previously reported on other credits going out for that Uber issue.
Many people are reporting seeing a statement credit or various amounts appearing on their American Express statement today in amounts ranging from as little as $.05 to more than $50. No one seems to have any sort of explanation as to why these credits were issued.
I recall once getting one of these random statement credits from Amex last year, and the next day it was clawed back. That might happen this time as well.
