Yesterday I received an e-mail from SkyMiles Dining Member Services informing me that American Express credit cards issued outside of the United States no longer allow to earn miles at SkyMiles Dining restaurants.
This changed with November 10, 2012. Funny is that the e-mail states that I will still earn miles for qualified dining activity on my American Express cards prior to November 10. Well, I received this e-mail on November 14 … so a little late.
For me this means that I have to be careful when dining during trips to the US to not pay with an American Express at restaurants participating in the SkyMiles Dining program. Until now it did not matter since I had registered all my credit cards (two American Express and one Visa).
As I understand it, American Express cards issued in the US are still valid.
