A few weeks ago, we wrote about American Express was running their Amex Checkout Promotion, where you could get a $10 statement credit for making any purchase at a handful of merchants. I decided to put this to use at Newegg and had no issue, so my next purchase was a $1 donation on Ticket Master.
I made the purchase got charged and even got the $10 statement credit from Amex, but then a few weeks later got the following email from Ticket Master.

I thought that was strange, how was making a donation to the Chicago White Sox a violation of their policy? Then the next thing I knew I got refunded the $1 to my credit card.
Which meant, I wasn’t getting the $10 statement credit, and sure enough Amex charged back the $10 to my card.
