  1. I am quite disappointed with Amex. It makes me want to close accounts. I submitted a Purchase Protection claim. Bought a Samsung in Feb. 2018, under installments, and recently paid it off about $600….went on a trip, phone fell and cracked. Amex denied claim because I originally bought it in Feb. They are not going by date I paid phone off with Amex card.
