Welcome back to the world where you have to spend what you earn.
Amex is going to go back to its old ways. Eventually they are going to fold all their existing "pay as you go, carry a balance" type credit cards back into their standard "green" cards where the balance has to be paid off every month.
The only credit card I have ever used is the Amex gold business card. It has to be paid off monthly and it always is.
For those of you that rely on the "carry a balance" cards, those days are coming to an end.
Guess you will have to start living within your weekly cash means and forgo any new toys, tattoos and other crap you really couldnt afford in the first place.
