Between Jan 8 and today I have made 13 separate purchases on my HHonors Amex at one particular shop in Israel. All the purchases were between 80 and 110 shekels (roughly $22-$30). Each purchase went through with no problem. The shop owner insists that he has been paid for them (except, of course, the most recent -- and his account is showing that those are due). Amex, however, has never billed me. I called them a few minutes ago and the CSR checked with her supervisor, who in turn checked with HER supervisor, and they all agree that this is impossible. They insist that if the merchant got paid then the debit would have to appear on my account. Other purchases I made in Israel show up immediately. One, which I made today, doesn't show on line but the CSR was able to see it. I imagine that one day they will all suddenly show up but I have to wonder at what point Amex will no longer bill me for them. Six months from now? A year from now? When is the cut off date?
