American Express is discontinuing Direct Connect

Well, crap. Another one bites the dust. Amex is my oldest credit card; I'd hate to see it go but I'm not sure it'll be worth keeping anymore. I mostly use Citi Cards now.

PS: If you select the "Remind Me Later" option, "later" turns out to be every time you update the account.

    I tried updating the connection this morning and it failed with a message something like "unable to process your request". Tried again a couple hours later and it succeeded.

    This transition doesn't particularly bother me since I don't need to update my Amex account any more often than the other Quicken Connect accounts I already have.

    Not working for me, been chatting with AE support. When I go to authorize quicken on the AE site, the authorization button is grayed out. It appears they are missing a check box or something to click to authorize the account.
