Is there a Problem with American Express Credit Cards and Downloading Monthly Bills?

Recently I've been encountering that my AMEX credit card download access is locked and thus I can't download to my bills and income. I can get logged into the account, which reestablishes the connection, but then the bill won't download (get a message that the connection has been made but there it no bill right now, which is not the case).

I've deleted the online billing setup and the associated billing reminder, then reset up both but it's still not working.

Is there an on-going problem with AMEX that hasn't been resolved or is there something I need to do to reestablish the download?

Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.

    Hi @BM749

    There had been an on-going downloading problem with AMEX credit cards for several weeks but that was supposedly fixed recently - see this message THREAD.  If you are still having problems, I suggest that you get in touch with Quicken Support via this LINK.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Frankx, thanks for the response. The link to the thread doesn't work and I can't seem to find it. Can you redo? Thanks much.

    I have this problem with Amex continually. I have two accounts and many times one will work while the other simply fails to grab a new bill. Usually, it downloads the PDF image of the bill, but simply does not update in my billing list as to amount and date due. Then it will work for a while and stop again with no notice. One must keep track of what/when bills are due because you cannot depend on Quicken to keep you from paying late.
