Secured Optima American Express Card--**** niecy25 Hi, I just wanted to let all of you know who have secured optima american express cards that they are discontinuing the program. I just sent off my deposit a couple of days ago and called to check and see if they have recieved it. They said the deposit and application will be returned and that the program was cancelled on th 24 of Oct. They said 37,000 customers have the card and they are checking to see if they can be switched over to a regular card. Those who can't be switched will have their balances paid out of their savings deposit account and remaining balances will be sent back to them. I got this from one of the supervisor over the Centurion Bank. I think this really sucks!!!!. I was really looking forward to getting this card. Oh well.
